As direct access to fibre optics get pushed closer to the subscriber, telecommunications providers are faced with increasingly complex Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) system architectures that require multiple wavelengths to be combined and separated on to each fibre.
Enablence's passive optical components help simplify these deployments and have proven themselves in even the most challenging applications, such as 50 Ghz channel spacing or non-thermally controlled environments. Two standard AWG products are available, built with proprietary Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) technology for reduced size and form factor:
Athermal AWG modules can be deployed in the external fibre plant yet require no electrical power for operation, simplifying how and where they can be used.
Colourless AWG modules allow use of the same part over a variety of channel bands, minimising component inventory and simplifying system rollout.
Custom products that incorporate AWGs, receivers, transmitters, VOAs, and other functions in a single compact housing are also available, please ask for details.
