CWDM Multiplexers – Models 6004 and 6008

CWDM Systems economically expand capacity of fiber plant with the 6702 CWDM Transponder - the System Interface to the application. Protocol transparency and data rate agility spanning 100 Mbps to 1.25 Gbps mean support for nearly all applications, including SAN, Ethernet, Digital Video, SONET/SDH and others.

SNMP Management is key to maximizing circuit and service availability. Loopback Diagnostics localize problems for quicker fault resolution;Multi-Rate Clock Recovery improves overall performance, and Redundant Optics keep critical applications up during fiber failures.

Optical Redundancy primary and secondary fiber paths being either real or CWDM virtual fiber allows back-up configurations that best matches your operations, facility and economic needs.

All of this minimizes circuit downtime and maintains the service level your customers expect and demand.

6004 and 6008 Application Overview

The 6004 and 6008 CWDM Multiplexers combine (multiplex) and separate (demultiplex) 4 to 9 ITU CWDM wavelengths. This reduces fiber needed from 9 pairs to a single pair. Depending on the situation, this could be a substantial savings on lease costs, deferment or elimination of fiber construction, or gain the ability to supply needed optical circuits for applications.

Popular multiplexing configurations include point-to-point and point-to-point with mid-link add/drop of channels (using OADM Multiplexers at mid-link locations). The multiplexers are transparent to protocol and format, inherently supporting digital applications including SONET/SDH, Gigabit Ethernet, ESCON/FICON/Fibre Channel, digital video, and analog applications (1) such as analog video.
