HD FiberSystems, a manufacturer of fiber optics components and integrated optical modules, announced a series of 100GHz spacing, ITU channel grid DWDM devices, enabling a faster deployment of increase in bandwidth for optical networks.

The 100GHz DWDM device allows more channels of optical signal being multiplexed, on top of existing optical network structures. However, since the passband wavelength is much narrower, it is required to have high stringent specification in order to maintain the optical signal integrity. HD FiberSystems' new 100GHz spacing ITU channel DWDM devices are manufactured based on thin-film filter technology for highest control and stability. The DWDM devices offer the lowest reflect channel insertion loss of 0.35dB, plus high center wavelength accuracy, and high adjacent band isolation of larger than 25dB. Each DWDM device has gone through Bellcore test, ensuring a stable and reliable functionality under severe environmental conditions.

Each DWDM device is manufactured under a micro optomechanical fusion technique, resulting in an ideal passband curve. Current device channel matrix includes both odd and even standard ITU channels from 21 to 59.

HD FiberSystems will present its newest technology at OFC 2001, booth 4334. The products will include DWDM devices, DWDM rack modules, as well as OADM.
