Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components performance standard - Part 083-2: Non-connectorised single-mode fibre optic C-band/L-band WDM devices for category C - Controlled environment
|Publication Date:||1 March 2008|
|ICS Code (Fibre optic interconnecting devices):||33.180.20|
This part of IEC 61753 contains the minimum initial test and measurement requirements and severities which a fibre optic C-band/L-band WDM device shall satisfy in order to be categorised as meeting the IEC standard, Category C - controlled environment. The requirements cover devices with single-mode non-connectorised pigtails. C-band/L-band WDM devices combine and / or split C band and L band optical signals. A guard band is required between the used wavelength in the C and L band. Commercially available C-band/L-band WDM devices have narrower wavelength ranges such as 1 530 nm to 1 564 nm for C-band and 1 574 nm to 1 625 nm for L-band, compared with ITU-T Supplement N.39 Definitions, 1 530 nm to 1 565 nm for C-band and 1 565 nm to 1 625 nm for L-band. This standard describes performance standards for commercially available C-band/L-band WDM devices.
