Wavelength-division multiplexer

The FlexPlex tmo-4 wavelength-division multiplexer combines four signals of any data rate between 30 Mbits/sec and 2.5 Gbits/sec for transport over a single fiber-optic cable. Typical repeater spacing is from 40 to 80 km. If repeaters are installed, the range can be extended to 160 km at a maximum transmission bit rate of 2.5 Gbits/sec. The unit operates with four wavelength-division transponders, an optical transmitter, and an optical receiver. The transponders convert each of the input signal wavelengths into the transmission wavelength of approximately 1550 nm. The multiplexer measures 60 ¥ 45 ¥ 26 cm.
