MDX-01Ad10xxB, MDX-04MD10xxB

The Lumentum WaveReady® 100 GHz Optical Add/Drop Modules (OADM) comprise a family of flexible, low-cost solutions to enable capacity expansion of existing fiber. Through use of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology, a single optical fiber can carry up to 32 discrete optical channels.

The 100 GHz DWDM OADM is configurable as both an OADM and a terminal multiplexer and demultiplexer (MUX/DEMUX) to support a broad range of architectures ranging from scalable point-to-point links to four-fiber protected rings. Innovative band upgrade ports allow for in-service pay-as-you-grow capacity scaling in multiples of one, four, or eight channels, allowing for lowest first-day cost without limiting growth.Market standard LGX packaging is readily deployed in existing LGX™-compatible frames or can be adapted into the WaveReady line of shelves.

The 100 GHz OADM is designed to operate with both the WaveReady line of transponder and optical regenerator solutions and ITU transponder cards of widely available transmission equipment.
