Passive WDM networks: simple & affordable

Trigon AG

The perfect solution for network providers who build and maintain networks for their own services.

What distinguishes passive WDM?

In a passive WDM system – also known as passive optical or embedded WDM – optical Mux and Demux components are used that operate without power or the use of software.
The advantages are:

  • Cost-efficient hardware
  • Reliable in operation
  • Simple to build, simple to operate, simple to maintain
  • Few sources of error and therefore a maximized MTBF (mean time between failures)

Passive components excel:

  • Short distances
  • Point-to-point network topology
  • When encryption is not required
