Two years after the acquisition of secure digital communications specialist Fiberplex Technologies by communications technology company Patton, VP of business development Buddy Oliver has said “leveraging the reputation and product ranges” of both brands is a key priority.
Fiberplex now operates as a brand of Patton, with both names typically appearing in the messaging for new and existing products. With this in mind, the company is showcasing several of its latest items at ISE 2019, including the WDM16 active wavelength division multiplexer.
The device allows the user to combine up to 16 sources of data on a single fibre pair. Each channel can be linked via fibre with selected FiberPlex POM, FOI or TD Series fiber modules, FiberPlex LightViper, or virtually any third-party fibre optic equipment. Data rates supported range from 155 megabits to 3 gigabits per channel, for a possible maximum aggregate data rate of 48Gbps.
Patton is also highlighting the TD-OADM, an optical add/drop mux used in WDM systems for multiplexing and routing different channels of light into or out of a single mode fibre.
