Optelian Takes CWDM Off the Shelf; Puts Passive Optics in Splice Trays Two New Hardened CWDM & DWDM Modules for Outside Plant Applications
Ottawa, ON/Marietta, GA March 13, 2009
Optelian is pleased to introduce two new hardened modules to aid the installation of CWDM, DWDM and other passive optics in outside plant facilities where rack space is often times unavailable.
First off, Optelian is now offering CWDM in a pigtailed module format. Up to 8 CWDM wavelengths and a 1310nm wavelength can be added or dropped with pass-through wavelengths also supported. Applications can be unidirectional or bidirectional. This compact stand-alone module at less than 3½” x 3½” x 1” fits in the most crowded cabinets and is hardened for harsh outside plant environments.
Secondly, Optelian’s highly-reliable passive optics are now available in splice tray packages. These modules are fully customizable with a choice of WDM, CWDM, and DWDM filters, splitters, circulators, and other optics. They can now be ordered in industry standard splice trays such as Tyco Electronic’s FOSC-B or D-TRAY, and Preformed Line Products (PLP)’s COYOTE.
“Optelian is known for high-quality, reliable, and affordable optical transport equipment. Now outside plant engineers can take advantage of these systems in many more applications,” said Dave Mills, Vice President of Sales at Optelian. “Adding new customers and new services at the edge of the network can be done quickly at the lowest cost, even when existing fibers are all currently in use.”
Optelian designs and manufactures optical transport systems for telecom, multi-service operator (MSO), utility, and enterprise customers worldwide.
