      You must use a 15-dB fiber attenuator (10 to 20 dB) when working with the TXP_MR_10E_L card in a loopback on the trunk port. Do not use direct fiber loopbacks with the TXP_MR_10E_L card. Using direct fiber loopbacks causes irreparable damage to the TXP_MR_10E_L card.


    • Connectors: LC
  • Transmitter (trunk side)
    • Maximum transmitter output power: +6 dBm
    • Minimum transmitter output power: +2 dBm
    • Transmitter: LN external modulator transmitter
    • Wavelength stability (drift): +/- 25 picometers (pm)

      Note


      An optical device on the card keeps the laser wavelength locked as closely as possible to the ITU nominal value. The allowed drift is +/- 25 pm.


  • Currently available wavelengths and versions of TXP_MR_10E_L card: There is a single version of the TXP_MR_10E_L card. It is tunable across 80 wavelengths in the L band frequency plan, with channels on the ITU 50-GHz grid, as shown in Table 50
