You need higher fibre capacity because of more services have to be added?

The robust and simple solution is Passive Wave Division Multiplexing!


Passive WDM Multiplexer

With our Lambdaway system you can transport multiple services inexpensively over a pair of fibre or even a single one. The multiplexer is fully transparent regarding protocols and applications (i.e. Ethernet or Fibre Channel).

The multiplexer is available with CWDM or DWDM technology. As an option DWDM frequencies can be cascaded into a Lambdaway CWDM type externally or integrated.

Key features are:

  • Passive WDM multiplexer capable of multiplexing up to 80 optical channels
  • Additional 1310nm ‹base› port available as an option
  • Optional DWDM extension port
  • Combines CWDM and DWDM technology in a single unit
  • Add/Drop versions
  • Comes with standard monitoring port (1%)
  • Single and dual fibre versions
  • Easy integration of new services using existing fibre links
  • Can be operated in combination with low-cost transceivers (SFP, XFP, GBIC, XENPAK, etc.), no need to replace existing equipment
  • Covers metro distances of 80 km and more
  • Fully bit rate and protocol transparent
  • Purely passive component requiring no power supply
  • Made in Switzerland

The flexible Lambdaway WDM concept presents the ideal expansion of your current optical fibre infrastructure supporting a maximum of 80 connections over a single fibre and multiple transfer protocols and standards (ESCON, ATM, Fibre Channel, Gigabit or even 10Gigabit Ethernet) – to be transmitted simultaneously.

The Lambdaway product family offers a comprehensive suite of high performance WDM multiplexers: The CWDM series, the DWDM series, and a combination of these two series

The CWDM series is available with 2 to 18 channels. The optional base channel version provides an additional 1310 nm channel and is particularly suited for highly cost-efficient 10Gb/s transmission speeds, for example. An optional extension port makes the Lambdaway series cascadable and enables to build a modular passive infrastructure that can be tailored to your individual needs.

The DWDM series is available as 4 to 80 channel versions. As a space-saving feature, a hybrid combination of CWDM and DWDM technology integrates in a single chassis.

Lambdaway Add/Drop

Multi-site xWDM networks can be deployed reliably and cost-efficiently using add/drop modules. There is hardly any limitation as to the number and direction (East/West) of the wavelengths added or dropped.

Networks, for example, comprising two main sites and some smaller POP’s or networks with a bead-chain structure can easily be installed and operated. Please contact us. Flexibility is our strength.
