Classification and use of wavelength division multiplexing field

Wavelength Division multiplexer function in simple terms is the wavelength of synthesis or separation. WDM common in two ways:

1, fused biconical taper: taper machine (including the computer monitoring and control system), two fiber after high temperature fused biconical taper 1310nm and 1550nm wavelength division multiplexing purposes.

2, filter type: through the lens and filters in SMD packages reach wavelength division multiplexing purposes.

Wavelength Division multiplexer-coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) and dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM):

CWDM: implement multiple wavelengths on the same fiber transmission.

DWDM: the technology is using single die fiber of bandwidth and low loss of characteristics, used multiple wavelength as carrier, allows the carrier channel in fiber within while transmission, and General of single channel system compared, DWDM not only great to improve has network system of communications capacity, full using has fiber of bandwidth, and it has expansion simple and performance reliable, many advantages, prospects is light.

The main differences between CWDM and DWDM.

1.CWDM carrier channel wider intervals, so that can multiplex up to 18 on the same fiber wavelength of light waves, "thick" and "intensive" difference resulting;

2.CWDM modulated laser using laser cooling, and DWDM uses cooled laser. Tuning by laser cooling temperatures, non-cooled laser electronic tuning. Due to a very wide wavelength section temperature distribution is not uniform, so temperature tuning is very difficult to implement, cost is very high. CWDM to avoid this difficulty, thus significantly reduces the cost, the entire CWDM system cost only 30% DWDM.

3.CWDM with low cost, low power consumption, small size and other features.
