Product Description

Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) is a technology that enables the transmission of multiple optical signals on different wavelengths over one strand of fiber. Suited for installations where fiber is limited in terms of availability, service providers and enterprise network managers can easily multiply their fiber capacity without incurring the costs associated with installing new fiber. For customers deploying high-end gigabit switches, the IE-iMcV-MuxDeMux/4 is ideal for supplying the growing need for greater bandwidth over fiber.

The IE-iMcV-MuxDemux/4 is a dual-wide module that provides 4 channels (8 channels using two modules) of CWDM, a network port for connecting two modules back-to-back, and an expansion port that can accommodate an existing 1310nm fiber network and for cascading a second unit.

The IE-iMcV-MuxDemux/4 modules are entirely passive, requiring no external power to function. The IE-MuxDemuxChassis/2 is an unpowered, 1U high chassis, specially designed to house the IEiMcV-MuxDemux/4, although it is compatible with the MediaChassis and iMediaChassis chassis lines. When the IE-iMcV-MuxDemux/4 is installed in an iMediaChassis in conjunction with a SNMP Management Module, iView2 will identify the card allowing network operators to view its status and edit port descriptions.
