Proximion Offers FBG-based Tunable Dispersion Compensation for 10/40 Gbps

Proximion Fiber Systems AB introduced two new versions of its Tunable Dispersion Compensation Module (TDCM) based on its proprietary Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) technology.

The new TDCM module offers a tunable range of +/-1400 ps/nm at a bandwidth operation of 45 GHz. Operating at the same 45 GHz bandwidth, Proximion's second new module version enables customers to achieve full flexibility while reaching truly colorless tuning over +/- 1200 ps/nm. With a low power consumption of 1.5 watts, low loss and wide bandwidth, Proximion's newest TDCM modules easily support the growing need for high performance dispersion compensation for 10G and 40G applications.
