8 Channels Double Fiber Low-band Passive CWDM Mux/Demux – DCMD-8L is member of EDGE Optics xWDM Series product line. We designed EDGE Optics xWDM Series products to allow easy, gradual, logical and cost efficient expansion of network bandwidth using industry leading passive WDM technology. Main advantage of xWDM is its passive nature – no power supply or cooling necessary, robustness – no special micro-climate requirements and as passive element, it has MTBF 100+ Years. xWDM is – it is fully data rate or line protocol neutral – it is possible to use with colored transceivers supporting such applications as 1G/10G Ethernet, SDH/SONET and 8/4/2/1G Fiber Channel. It’s simple to install, requires no configuration or maintenance.
DCMD-8L is passive multiplexer/de-multiplexer package based on Thin-Film Filter (TFF) technology, allowing organize 8 duplex and parallel protocol independent ITU-T G.694.2 compatible Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplex (CWDM) data streams over pair of single mode optical fiber. DCMD-8L operates within CWDM Low-Band range of 1270-1450nm and it is possible to use it as upgrade package together with High-Band CWDM products such as DCMD-4HE or DCMD-8HE, or also as standalone. With our focus to provide maximally low insertion loss, DCMD-8L is equipped with band-pass or skip filters extending maximum distance of CWDM connections. DCMD-8L s manufactured as LGX type B module, installed in 19” 1U sub rack fitting any standard equipment rack.
