Titan deploys six-port WDM

NOVEMBER 15, 2007 -- Titan's six-port WDM combines two conventional three-port devices in one cylindrical package, a design that supports homogeneous optical performance between the two identical parts in one device, says the company.

NOVEMBER 15, 2007 -- Optical components and network subsystem supplier Titan Photonics (search for Titan Photonics) today announced the deployment of its six-port filter product line in the WDM market.

Based on the company's 3D Optical Bundle Array technology, Titan's six-port WDM combines two conventional three-port devices in one cylindrical package. According to the company, this design supports homogeneous optical performance between the two identical parts in one device. More importantly, it significantly reduces the total amount of materials used in optical components, thus enabling greater cost savings in today's price-sensitive market, say company representatives.

Some of the most interesting applications include OADM, MUX/DEMUX, and FSAN filter WDM. Titan says that with its six-port WDM technology, customers are no longer required to install multiple identical devices at each location. Instead, customers can use only one device to serve the redundant function, much like having multiple resistors on one IC chip, but the integration stays in the optical domain.

Titan's six-port is RoHS compliant and specifically designed for the hardened environment at operating temperature range of -40 ° C to 85 ° C. Titan's six-port WDM is available in the most popular frequencies, including 100 GHz, 200 GHz, CWDM, and FSAN FWDM. Isolator and tap monitoring functions are also available in Titan's six-port filter product line.
