MicroMux is a coarse-WDM mux/demux module for OEMs. It provides data-rate and protocol-independent multiplexing or demultiplexing of four channels. It measures 9 × 9.2 × 6 mm and comes in a clip-pin mounting package. The device is designed for metro-core, metro-access, and enterprise CWDM systems; multiwavelength, 300-pin transponders; and GBIC and Xenpak transceivers. The module is ITU G.694.2-compliant.

A 50-GHz 1 x 8 interleaver periodically demultiplexes a 50-GHz channel-spaced stream into eight streams spaced at 400 GHz, and another version into eight streams spaced at 500-GHz. Models are available for both the C- and the L-bands.
OpsiTech, Grenoble, France

A 1550-nm, XENPAK-compliant transceiver module handles 10 Gigabit Ethernet transmissions over distances of 40 km. It is powered by an externally modulated laser, uses low-power CMOS ICs, and contains a PIN detector. A customized version with an avalanche photodiode detector is also available. It uses a standard XAUI electrical interface and 70-pin connector.
OpNext, Fremont, CA

EDF-980-T1 erbium-doped fiber has a high numerical aperture and is designed for erbium-doped fiber amplifiers that require tight fiber coils. EDF-RC-980-T1 is a reduced-clad erbium-doped fiber designed for small EDFAs such as those used in the metro amplifier market.
