40 Even Channels Double Fiber Expandable Passive 50 GHz DWDM Mux/Demux – DDMD-40-50I 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.
DDMD-40-50I is passive multiplexer/demultiplexer package based on AAWG (Athermal Arrayed Waveguide Grating) technology, allowing to organize 40 duplex, protocol independent paralel ITU-T G.694.1 compatible Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex (DWDM) data streams over pair of single mode optical fiber. DDMD-40-50I is equipped with 1% Monitoring (tap) port, with allows easy in-service analytics and troubleshooting. DDMD-40-50I supports 40 50GHz Even channels and its Upgrade port can be used with DDMD-40-50, with can expand DWDM link adding 40 50GHz odd channels. DDMD-40-50I is manufactured as standard 1U high 19” sub-rack fitting any standard equipment rack.
