Fiber optic transceiver boosts wavelengths, speeds data rates
Stephen LawElectronics telecom telecommunications transceiver
L-COM Fiber optic transceivers (CWDM) and (DWDM) represent additional wavelengths, distances and data rates supported. Devices convert a switch’s or router’s electrical signal to an optical signal, then change it back to an electrical signal at the receiving device. Devices are suitable for telecommunications service providers, cable TV multiple system operators (MSOs), data communications companies and enterprise networks, and in government network applications.
Products add to the existing portfolio of ‘grey’ wavelength transceivers (850nm, 1310nm and 1550nm) with both CWDM and DWDM wavelength options. CWDM devices are offered in eight different wavelengths (1470nm through 1610nm, in 20nm increments). DWDM devices come in 40 different channels, from channels 20 through 59 (1530.33nm through 1561.41nm wavelengths, in 0.8nm increments).
