1RU Product Line

1RU Wavelength Translators

wavelength translatorsThe WT-Series of Wavelength Translators interfaces 1310 nm –short-haul data transmission equipment to the 1550-nm amplified systems for long haul applications.

The line transmitters and receivers of the WT series have been designed to take full advantage of the low receiver sensitivity to reach maximum distance with minimum equipment.  Designed for perfect combination with MPBC Power Amplifier. Data rates from STM-1 to STM-16, and multi-rate are available.
