Motorola Introduces Enhanced CWDM

Motorola introduced its Enhanced Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (E-CWDM) solution designed for increasing the downstream service delivery capacity of cable networks by transmitting multiple CWDM optical signals over a single fiber optic connection, enabling operators to segment serving areas into three, four or five discrete areas. Each optical signal can carry a full 1 GHz loading of broadcast and narrowcast content over distances up to 25 kilometers between the hub and optical node.

Motorola says that by increasing bandwidth through greater segmentation, operators can raise overall voice, data and video broadband throughput while avoiding the expense of adding new fiber.

Motorola's E-CWDM technology is utilized in its widely-deployed Motorola OmniStar GX2 optical transport platform and SG4000 optical node platform.
