TE Connectivity unveils compact CWDM module for fiber capacity expansion

TE Connectivity has unveiled its Compact CWDM (CCWDM) module for service
providers that want to expand the capacity of their fiber plants without the
expense of deploying additional fiber cables.

TE’s CCWDM module splits out four or eight wavelengths from a single fiber and
can be installed in the field or in the factory. In addition, the CCWDM module
comes with a unique carrier that snaps into TE’s FOSC closure trays to securely
hold the CWDM module in place.

The CCWDM module is available in 4- or 8-wavelength versions, with or without
upgrade and 1310nm ports, to multiplex or de-multiplex wavelengths.

This provides better cable plant versatility while provisioning commercial
customers with high speed data, digital phone and video services. The module
features low optical loss and is compatible with most TE FOSC closures.

Up to two CCWDM modules can be mounted in a single FOSC A, B or C closure tray
and more than two devices can be mounted into a single FOSC D closure tray.
And, when used without the carrier, the CCWDM module can be mounted in most
competitive splicing trays as well.

“The new CCWDM module further expands our market-leading FOSC closure product
family,” said Jaxon Lang, vice president of Telecom Networks Americas at TE.
