Wavelength Division Multiplexing is the technology of using
two or more wavelengths to carry signals through the same optical fiber. The signals are
generated by separate light sources in the same transmitter, combined for transmission and
separated optically at the other end before being detected.
The TC4001 Fiber Optic Wavelength Division Multiplexer (WDM)
enables 1310nm and 1550nm wave lengths to be transmitted simultaneously on one (single
mode) fiber optic cable. The direction of the optical signals can be in the same direction
or opposite direction.
Transparent to incoming data, the TC4001 effectively doubles
existing cable capacity by multiplexing two separate signals over a single (single mode)
The TC4001 will distinguish between 1310nm and 1550nm
optical signals. Thus, a user needs to connect the TC4001 to a device (transceiver, modem,
etc.) with a 1310nm single mode transmitter at one end and a 1550nm Single
at the far end. It is ideal for situations where existing fiber optic cable capacity is
limited, because it doubles existing cable capacity.
