PRODUCT MIGRATION OPTIONS

The recommended replacement for the Cisco 1000BASE-CWDM products is the Cisco WDM line of CWDM passive devices (Table 3). The new set of CWDM passive devices offers:

1. Improved performance over the current Cisco 1000BASE-CWDM products, by reducing the insertion loss between 20 and 50 percent, depending on the module.

2. Two versions of 4-channel OADMs: (1470, 1490, 1510, and 1530 nm) and (1550, 1570, 1590, and 1610nm). The Cisco 1000BASE-CWDM products offer only one 4-channel OADM (1470, 1510, 1550, and 1590 nm).

3. The ability to mix traditional 1300 nm wavelengths along with CWDM wavelengths. On the other hand the Cisco 1000BASE-CWDM products are not transparent to 1300 nm wavelengths.

4. Optical monitoring capabilities on the Network ports without traffic disruption, by means of dedicated "tap" ports to route the optical power of the CWDM channels to optical power meters or spectrum analyzer. This feature is not supported in the 1000BASE-CWDM line.
