Capacity constraints on fibre networks are driven by the increase in subscriber rates and the bandwidth required to satisfy these new customers. Too many Internet Service Providers (ISP)s wait until their networks are on the cusp of burning out to upgrade their core, negatively affecting the customer’s experience. MikroTik introduced an innovative Coarse Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technology now available from SS Telecoms. The CWDM can tremendously increase the overall capacity of your existing fibre infrastructure by enabling multiple channels or wavelengths over the same fibre cable, reducing costs for any new fibre optic deployments and future-proofing bandwidth requirements.
How does the CWDM work?
This technology simultaneously combines several wavelengths onto the same fibre cable to offer you unparalleled bandwidth capacity. The CWDM system uses a multiplexer at the transmitter to connect several signals while using the demultiplexer at the receiving end to split them apart. This allows you to combine up to eight fibre links into one, simplifying and reducing the costs of long-distance fibre installations.
The benefits of implementing the CWDM system into your network includes increased efficiency on your existing fibre network, scalability, easy deployment, reduced consumption of electricity (passive equipment), reduced maintenance of equipment and installation costs.
The MikroTik CWDM-MUX8A unit can offer you the capacity to create up to eight independent 1.25Gbps SFP links, enabling you to reach distances of up to 40 kilometres. Alternatively, you can create a 10Gbps SPF+ for connections up to 10 kilometres. This means you can have an affordable alternative to installing more fibre or leasing additional fibres. ISPs and fibre network operators (FNOs) can simultaneously use the 1.25Gbps and 10Gbps modules.
