The iConverter CWDM/X 4 and 8 Channel Multimode Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) Multiplexer and Demultiplexer plug-in modules facilitate significant increase in the capacity of existing multimode fiber networks. Multimode multiplexers are ideal for in-buildings or campuses where regulatory or economical limitations make it difficult to replace existing multimode fiber.
iConverter Multimode CWDM/X multiplexers are protocol and rate transparent, allowing Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SDH/SONET, and other services up to 10Gbps each to be transported across the same fiber link. The modules support ITU-T G.694.2 standard CWDM wavelengths between 1270nm to 1610nm in 20nm increments.
iConverter Multimode CWDM/X modules are passive devices that require no external power. They can be installed in any iConverter chassis with iConverter media converters and transponders to enable connectivity between existing equipment and CWDM multiplexers.
The small and compact size of the Multimode CWDM/X modules yields one of the highest port densities in the industry. Using the 2U high iConverter compact chassis, 38 CWDM/X multimode modules can be installed, providing up to 684 connectors or up to 608 simplex channels or 304 duplex channels.
