CM OM-ETR CWDM

CWDM Optical Multiplexer Family

CM OM-ETR CWDM

Case mounted passive optical multiplexer units with Extended Temperature Range capabilty. For CWDM applications. CSF-A/B version compatible with single fiber bi-directionnal operation. Operating temperature range from -40 °C to +65 °C.

With the increasing use of both fixed and mobile video and data, the demand for bandwidth out to every cell tower continues to rise. For metro transport, fiber scarcity is a major roadblock for network operators that need to expand the number of customers they can reach and the number and capacity of the services they can deliver.

EKINOPS CM Optical Multiplexer (OM) series of Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) solutions provide network operators with a way to selectively increase the utilization of their existing fiber plant up to 18 times to rapidly provision additional bandwidth and services at afraction of the investment required to deploy new fiber. Whether rings, hub-and-spoke or point-to-point links; dark or lit fiber; dual or single fiber working, EKINOPS CWDM solutions enable network operators to eliminate fiber constraints, leverage existing fiber plant investments, and accelerate revenue generation.

Functional Description

The EKINOPS solution is based on a 1RU passive chassis which can hold a mix of various elements such as OMs and Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (OADMs). The OM modules support either 8 or10 channel multiplexing schemes in a dual fiber configuration covering the S- and C-bands from 1270 nm to 1610 nm. For single fiber configuration, the muxes support 8 paired channels. Both 8 and 10-channel OMs come in Extended Temperature Range (ETR) versions so they can be deployed in environmental extremes from -40°C to +65°C / -40°F to +149°F. Monitoring ports are also available allowing operators to non-intrusively validate the performance of their network.
