NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand in North Andover, Mass. is introducing more than 300 new coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) and dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) fiber optic transceivers for government networks, telecommunications, cable TV, data communications, and enterprise networks.
Fiber optic transceivers convert a switch's or router's electrical signal to an optical signal, then change it back to an electrical signal at the receiving device.
The CWDM transceivers come in eight different wavelengths: 1470 through 1610 nanometers, in 20-nanometer increments. The DWDM transceivers come in 40 different channels, from channels 20 through 59 at 1530.33 nanometers through 1561.41 nanometers, in 0.8-nanometer increments.
More than 30 of the fiber optic transceivers models support fiber optic lines as long as 120 kilometers at Gigabit Ethernet and SONET OC-48 data rates. These products also features grey 1G and 10G optics for multimode and single-mode fiber deployments.
This expansion of L-com's line includes more than 100 offerings in the SFP, SFP+, and XFP form factors. In addition, the models broaden 29 of the 38 OEM platforms with which L-com's line is compatible, in addition to the standard MSA-compliant versions. The most significant additions are to Ciena, Alcatel 7x50, Alcatel OMNI, Brocade/Foundry, Cisco, Cyan, Huawei, Juniper, and MRV.
The CWDM transceivers and DWDM transceivers handle standard operating temperatures, yet integrators can request custom versions for industrial-temperature versions. For more information contact L-com online at www.l-com.com.
