iMcV-WDM

Wavelength Division Multiplexers

iMcV-WDM/2 Series

Protocol-Independent Wavelength Division Multiplexing for High Volume Optical Networking Applications

With WDM products, service providers and enterprise network managers can easily double fiber capacity and integrate multiple protocols.

  • Doubles the capacity of installed fiber by transmitting two wavelengths on one strand of fiber
  • Speed and protocol-independent, and support 1310 nm and 1550 nm single-mode fiber
  • Modular, hot-swappable architecture reduces operational costs associated with product installation, upgrades and maintenance

Product Description

Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) is a technology that enables the transmitting 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 double their fiber capacity without incurring the costs associated with installing new fiber. Campus area network managers can deploy the WDM/2 solution, for example, to combine voice and data traffic over the same duplex fiber between company facilities.

WDM/2 and iMcV-WDM/2 are two-channel, passive, protocol and speed-independent Wavelength Division Multiplexers which allow two individual wavelengths to share one fiber pair; Full-Duplex data travels on 1310 nm and 1550 nm to virtually double the capacity of installed fiber. Deploy WDM/2 products in pairs so that the host site will multiplex 1310 nm and 1550 nm onto the fiber and the remote site will then separate the signals by the wavelength. Available in standalone and modular versions, the protocol-independent WDM/2 products enable the transmitting of any protocol and any speed over 1310 nm or 1550 nm single-mode fiber.

Support a variety of protocols; easy installation

As passive, protocol-independent Wavelength Division Multiplexers, WDM/2 and iMcV-WDM/2 comply with a wide range of communications protocols including Ethernet (10/100/ 1000 Mbps), SONET/SDH (OC-3, OC-12 OC-48), FDDI, ATM, ESCON, T1/E1, E3, DS3, FibreChannel, and 10G. Installing WDM/2 products is easy— standalone WDM/2 chassis come ready to install and iMcV-WDM/2 modules slide into any iMediaChassis or MediaChassis/2. There is no configuration required for either version.
