Something you should know about CWDM DWDM and OADM

CWDM/DWDM Mux/Demux and OADM are all fit in with Passive. CWDM and DWDM technology produce an efficient strategy to share one set of fiber strands and hang together various communications interfaces, simply by using different wavelengths of light for each channel. Thus they could expand the proportions from the network without laying more fiber. And that i want to introduce the actual basical description of CWDM Mux/Demux, DWDM Mux/Demux and OADM.

As you know, Mux (Multiplexer) products combine several data signals into one for transporting over the single fiber. Demux (Demulitplexer) separates the signals at the opposite end. Each signal are at an alternative wavelength.

CWDM Mux/Demux

The Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing-CWDM Mux/Demux is often a flexible plug-and-play network solution, which helps insurers and enterprise companies to affordably implement denote point or ring based WDM optical networks. CWDM Mux/demux is perfectly suitable for transport PDH, SDH / SONET, ETHERNET services over WWDM, CWDM and DWDM in optical metro edge and access networks. CWDM tools are widely used in less precision optics and lower cost, un-cooled lasers with lower maintenance requirements. Weighed against DWDM and Conventional WDM, CWDM is a bit more affordable and much less power usage of laser devices. CWDM Multiplexer Modules can be found in 4, 8 and 16 channel configurations. These modules passively multiplex the optical signal outputs from 4 excessively electronic products, send on them somebody optical fiber and de-multiplex the signals into separate, distinct signals for input into gadgets along the opposite end for your fiber optic link.

DWDM Mux/Demux

The Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing-DWDM Mux/Demux Modules are built to multiplex multiple DWDM channels into 1 or 2 fibers. Depending on type CWDM Mux/Demux unit, with optional expansion, can transmit and receive around 4, 8, 16 or 32 connections of standards, data rates or protocols more than one single fiber optic link without disturbing the other person. DWDM MUX/DEMUX modules provides best and low-cost bandwidth upgrade on your current fiber optic communication networks.


OADM(Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer) is often a device utilized in WDM systems for multiplexing and routing different channels of fiber into or out of a single mode fiber (SMF). OADM is made to optically add/drop one or multiple CWDM/DWDM channels into one or two fibers, provides capacity to add or drop an individual wavelength or multi-wavelengths from the fully multiplexed optical signal. This enables intermediate locations between remote sites gain access to the regular, point-to-point fiber segment linking them. Wavelengths not dropped pass-through the OADM and continue on in direction of the remote site. Additional selected wavelengths can be added or came by successive OADMS if required.
