What Fiber Optic Attenuator Do You Use? LC Attenuator or SC?

Fiber optic attenuator is an essential passive component in the optical communication system. With the advancement of DWDM technology, as well as the potential to flexibly upgrade the reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM), the demand for optical attenuator is sure to soar, especially for optical variable attenuator. Types of Fiber Optic Attenuators Optical attenuator takes a number of different forms….

Passive CWDM VS DWDM – Which to choose?

With current industry advancements trend that has equalized costs of transceivers, in a technical battle of CWDM vs DWDM, more advancements are in DWDM. Let’s compare passive CWDM vs DWDM from pure technical application viewpoint: CWDM vs DWDM – Channel Uniformity: As CWDM spectrum for 18 channels spans from 1260nm up to 1620nm compared to DWDM C-band 1530 – 1565…

WDM Filter Technology

As an unprecedented opportunity to dramatically increase the bandwidth capacity, WDM(Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology is an ideal solution to get more bandwidth and lower cost in nowadays telecommunications networks. WDM Filters can separate or combine optical signals carried on different wavelengths in a cost-effective manner. Splitters versus Filters One issue with WDM-PON(Passive Optical Network) is that there is no industry-accepted definition. WDM-PON is an…
