WaveReady Dispersion Compensation Module (DCM), Fiber Bragg Grating


The WaveReady® Fiber Bragg Grating Dispersion Compensation Modules (WRDCMG) provide negative dispersion for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transmission systems. They can be used to compensate dispersion on standard single-mode G.652 (NDSF) and G.655 (NZ-DSF) optical fiber (SMF) across the entire C band. The single-slot LGX or WaveReady shelf form factor of the WRDCMG enables extended DWDM transmission in a very small footprint. When combined with WaveReady transponders and amplifiers, the WRDCMG provides a simple, reliable, and cost-effective DWDM transport solution. The WRDCMG-20 and -40 are specifically targeted for link pre-compensation and may be used before a booster amplifier. All models may be used for inline compensation or for post-preamp applications. The WRDCMG can support single- or multi-channel (C-band) applications at 2.5, 10, 40, and 100G line rates.
