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.
