Overview

The Cisco CWDM passive optical system provides optical networking support for high-speed data communication for metropolitan area networks (MANs) over a grid of eight CWDM optical wavelengths in both ring or point-to-point configurations.

The Cisco CWDM passive optical system includes the following components:

2-slot chassis for Cisco Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (OADMs)

CWDM OADMs

Dual single-channel OADMs

4-channel OADM

8-channel multiplexer/demultiplexer

Single fiber 4-channel multiplexer/demultiplexers

CWDM GBICs

CWDM 2-Slot Chassis

The CWDM 2-slot chassis (CWDM-CHASSIS-2) is a standard 19-inch chassis that is one rack unit (RU) in height. Each CWDM 2-slot chassis can hold two CWDM OADM modules. You can install the CWDM 2-slot chassis in the same equipment rack as your system or in an adjacent rack so that you can connect the OADMs to the CWDM GBICs.

CWDM OADMs

The CWDM OADMs are passive devices that can multiplex/demultiplex or add/drop wavelengths from multiple fibers onto one optical fiber. The OADM connectors are interfaced to the color-matching CWDM GBICs on the equipment side. All the modules are the same size. The CWDM 2-slot chassis allows you to rack mount up to two CWDM OADMs in a single rack unit. There are four different types of CWDM OADMs:

Dual Single-Channel OADMs (CWDM-MUX-AD-xxxx—Allows you to add/drop two channels of the same wavelength into the two directions of an optical ring. The other wavelengths are passed through the OADM. Dual fiber is used for both the network and the CWDM GBIC connections. Eight versions of this OADM are available, one for each wavelength of light. (See Table 1.) The dual single-channel OADMs are color coded and match the color coding of the CWDM GBICs.

4-Channel OADM (CWDM-MUX-4=)—Allows you to add/drop four channels (with different wavelengths) into one direction of an optical ring. The other wavelengths are passed through the OADM. Dual fiber is used for both the network and the GBIC connections. The four wavelengths are set to 1470 nm, 1510 nm, 1550 nm, and 1590 nm.

8-Channel Multiplexer/Demultiplexer (CWDM-MUX-8=)—Allows you to multiplex/demultiplex eight separate channels into one pair of fiber. Dual fiber is used for both the network and the GBIC connections. The eight available wavelengths are 1470 nm, 1490 nm, 1510 nm, 15300 nm, 1550 nm, 1570 nm, 1590 nm, and 1610 nm.

Single-Fiber 4-Channel Multiplexer/Demultiplexer (CWDM-MUX-4-SFx=)—Allows you to multiplex/demultiplex four separate channels into one strand of fiber. Dual fiber is used for the connections to the GBICs and single fiber is used for the network connections. The two models (CWDM-MUX-4-SF1= and CWDM-MUX-4-SF2=) must be used together to create a four-channel single-fiber point-to-point link. This module uses the same CWDM GBICs as all of the other CWDM OADMs.

Cuidado

Radiação laser classe 1M quando aberto. Não olhar diretamente com instrumentos ópticos.

Precaución

Los productos láser Clase 1M emiten radiación una vez abiertos. No los mire directamente con instrumentos ópticos.

Försiktig!

Klass 1M laser utstrålning när öppen. Betrakta ej direkt med optiska instrument.


Unterminated Fiber Warning

Warning


Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not view directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm may pose an eye hazard.

Waarschuwing

Er kunnen onzichtbare laserstralen worden uitgezonden vanuit het uiteinde van de onafgebroken vezelkabel of connector. Niet in de straal kijken of deze rechtstreeks bekijken met optische instrumenten. Als u de laseruitvoer met bepaalde optische instrumenten bekijkt (zoals bijv. een oogloep, vergrootgras of microscoop) binnen een afstand van 100 mm kan dit gevaar voor uw ogen opleveren.

Varoitus

Päättämättömän kuitukaapelin tai -liittimen päästä voi tulla näkymätöntä lasersäteilyä. Älä tuijota sädettä tai katso sitä suoraan optisilla välineillä. Lasersäteen katsominen tietyillä optisilla välineillä (esim. suurennuslasilla tai mikroskoopilla) 10 cm:n päästä tai sitä lähempää voi olla vaarallista silmille.

Attention

Des émissions de radiations laser invisibles peuvent se produire à l'extrémité d'un câble en fibre ou d'un raccord sans terminaison. Ne pas fixer du regard le rayon ou l'observer directement avec des instruments optiques. L'observation du laser à l'aide certains instruments optiques (loupes et microscopes) à une distance inférieure à 100 mm peut poser des risques pour les yeux.

Warnung

Eine unsichtbare Laserstrahlung kann vom Ende des nicht angeschlossenen Glasfaserkabels oder Steckers ausgestrahlt werden. Nicht in den Laserstrahl schauen oder diesen mit einem optischen Instrument direkt ansehen. Ein Betrachten des Laserstrahls mit bestimmten optischen Instrumenten, wie z.B. Augenlupen, Vergrößerungsgläsern und Mikroskopen innerhalb eines Abstands von 100 mm kann für das Auge gefährlich sein.

Figyelem!

A lezáratlan optikai kábelek és a csatlakozók láthatatlan lézerfényt bocsáthatnak ki. Ne nézzen bele a sugárba, és ne nézze közvetlenül, optikai berendezések segítségével! Ha a kibocsátott lézert 100 mm-esnél kisebb távolságból nézi bizonyos optikai eszközökkel (például nagyítóval vagy mikroszkóppal), látáskárosodást szenvedhet.

Avvertenza

L'estremità del connettore o del cavo ottico senza terminazione può emettere radiazioni laser invisibili. Non fissare il raggio od osservarlo in modo diretto con strumenti ottici. L'osservazione del fascio laser con determinati strumenti ottici (come lupette, lenti di ingrandimento o microscopi) entro una distanza di 100 mm può provocare danni agli occhi.

Advarsel

Usynlig laserstråling kan emittere fra enden av den ikke-terminerte fiberkabelen eller koblingen. Ikke se inn i strålen og se heller ikke direkte på strålen med optiske instrumenter. Observering av laserutgang med visse optiske instrumenter (for eksempel øyelupe, forstørrelsesglass eller mikroskoper) innenfor en avstand på 100 mm kan være farlig for øynene.

Aviso

Radiação laser invisível pode ser emitida pela ponta de um conector ou cabo de fibra não terminado. Não olhe fixa ou diretamente para o feixe ou com instrumentos ópticos. Visualizar a emissão do laser com certos instrumentos ópticos (por exemplo, lupas, lentes de aumento ou microscópios) a uma distância de 100 mm pode causar riscos à visão.

¡Advertencia!

El extremo de un cable o conector de fibra sin terminación puede emitir radiación láser invisible. No se acerque al radio de acción ni lo mire directamente con instrumentos ópticos. La exposición del ojo a una salida de láser con determinados instrumentos ópticos (por ejemplo, lupas y microscopios) a una distancia de 100 mm puede comportar lesiones oculares.

Varning!  

Osynlig laserstrålning kan komma från änden på en oavslutad fiberkabel eller -anslutning. Titta inte rakt in i strålen eller direkt på den med optiska instrument. Att titta på laserstrålen med vissa optiska instrument (t.ex. lupper, förstoringsglas och mikroskop) från ett avstånd på 100 mm kan skada ögonen.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco TAC is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC website and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center. The avenue of support that you choose depends on the priority of the problem and the conditions stated in service contracts, when applicable.

We categorize Cisco TAC inquiries according to urgency:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

Cisco TAC Website

You can use the Cisco TAC website to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC website, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC website. Some services on the Cisco TAC website require a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do

If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC website, you can open a case online at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/index.html

If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC website so that you can describe the situation in your own words and attach any necessary files.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:
