MDX

The MDX shelf series provides up to 80 channels of terminal multiplexing and demultiplexing in a single unit onto a common DWDM line. These passive DWDM MDX shelves provide a simple yet highly reliable solution for terminating 40-channel or 80-channel systems in a single package. A single bidirectional unit provides all client connectivity at one end of a point-to-point configuration, or in one direction of a ROADM-based distributed network.They are compatible with any ITU-T DWDM transmission equipment.
