STARMUX

 smux

Wavelength Division Multiplexing

a technology which multiplexes multiple optical carrier signals on a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (colors) of light to carry each individual signal

  • Increase capacity on routes with fiber exhaustion
  • Inexpensive alternative to installing more fiber or leasing additional fibers

Starview CWDM Value Proposition

Easy deployment and flexible implementation

  •  “Plug and play,” no configuration of CWDM components
  •  Enable point-to-point, hub-and-spoke, ring, and meshed
  •  architectures on top of Singlemode ring

Flexibility

  •  Allow flexible and highly available multi-service network design with multi-protocol media converters
  •  Mixture of high and low bandwidths, electrical or optical interfaces

Scalability

  •  Provide scalable Ethernet bandwidth between 100Mb and 10Gbps over existing fiber link

Investment protection

  •  Use existing standard optical ports on switches and routers
  •  Increase bandwidth on existing fiber infrastructure
