A family of four- and eight-channel coarse wavelength division multiplexing modules that support 10-Gb/s Ethernet in metropolitan area networks is available from Luminent Inc. The company says the devices, enabling speeds of up to 12.5 Gb/s, allow optical networking equipment manufacturers to deliver greater bandwidth via single-mode optical fiber. The four-channel modules multiplex four distributed feedback lasers in the 1500-nm window and support link budgets from 3 to 20 dB. The technology supports 10- to 70-km solutions over installed single-mode optical fiber.
