WDM Media Converters
Bi-directional Data Transfer on a Single Fiber Strand
A Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) Media Converter, can link Copper to Fiber, convert Single Mode to Multimode, or extend a Multimode network over Single Strand Fiber, also known as Simplex Fiber. Single Strand Fiber uses bidirectional (Bi-Di) communication that enables network administrators to:
- instantly double capacity without deploying more cable
- reduce labour costs associated with maintenance and installation
- improve reliability as the number of end point connections decrease
Bandwidth is increased because each wavelength carries data independently from others allowing network designers to mix and match speeds and protocols over the same fiber link. WDM uses separate transmit and receive frequencies to communicate on a single fiber strand. WDM technology relies on the fact that optical fibers can carry many wavelengths of light simultaneously without interaction between each wavelength and are divided into different wavelength patterns, conventional/coarse (CWDM) and dense (DWDM).
