Product Details

One of the most important parts of a flexible CWDM system, the CWDM Optical Add Drop (OADM) is designed to Add Drop multiple CWDM channels onto one or two fibers. CWDM Optical Add Drop Multiplexers are the ideal solution for the increasing bandwidth demand on enterprise and metro access networks. ESCON, ATM, Fiber Channel, Gigabit-Ethernet are supported simultaneously, without disturbing each other. Montclair CWDM Optical Add Drop Multiplexers (OADM) are available in 1RU 19” Rack mount, LGX module, and Tray-mount ruggedized cassettes. CWDM OADMs can be configured to fit your specific network application: one or two fibers, redundant networks, ring or linear network design.
