What is DWDM Channel Spacing?

DWDM channel spacing governs system performance; 100 GHz is the most commonly used and reliable channel spacing. This spacing allows for several channel schemes without imposing limitations on available fiber amplifiers. However, channel spacing depends on the...

The Dense Wave Multiplexing DWDM channel or light wavelength matrix (see table below) has brought tremendous benefit to the metropolitan and long haul data transmission world.Bandwidth hungry applications are requiring more information over the same transport...

Shipping

Shipping

Lately, we have been getting a lot of questions about international shipping so we've decided to post some of the answers right here.  Read on to find out just how easy it is to get quality optical transceivers either shipped directly to you or drop shipped to a...

Testing

Testing

Each optical transceiver has unique EEProm attributes resident on the transceiver’s NVRAM. The OEM’s IOS looks for these attributes in order to enable “plug and play” functionality - so no error codes occur and there is no command line work around required. Before...

Programming

Programming

The programming for each optical transceiver is unique.  Many of the OEM’s structure their EEProm data and even discrete hardware attributes in order to deter customers from buying anything but their own.  Some of these nuances in the optical transceiver can include:...
