AFOP and for other purposes
AFOP acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia ), an innovative supplier of fiber optic components, subsystems and integrated modules for the optical network equipment market, today announced the new products that will be exhibited at the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC). The OFC show will take place on March 25 - 27, 2003 at the Georgia World Congress Center The Georgia World Congress Center or GWCC is the major convention center in Atlanta. It is the fourth-largest convention center in the United States at 1.4 million ft2 (130,000 m2) and hosts more than a million visitors each year. , Atlanta, Ga., and these products can be seen at our booth #2450.
SpectraMux(TM) -- Compact Coarse WDM
AFOP's new SpectraMux Compact CWDM (Course WDM) An optical transmission method that is used for shorter distances than dense WDM (DWDM). Also known as "wide WDM," CWDM transmits fewer channels and uses wider spacing between the channels for distances up to 60 km. Wider spacing up to 25 nm, compared to 1. module design offers significantly reduced cost in a package 1/4 the size of conventional CWDM modules. With a channel spacing of 20 nm and wide bandpass characteristics it is ideal for use with non-temperature controlled lasers. Other features include high center wavelength accuracy and stability, low insertion loss, high directivity, an epoxy-free optical path, and low polarization dependent loss.
These Compact CWDM Mux/Demuxes are available in four or eight channels and include an expansion port. AFOP's SpectraMux Compact CWDMs are designed to meet or exceed Telcordia requirements for performance and reliability. Custom wavelengths and channel configurations are available.
In addition at OFC:
AFOP continues to build on its proven CWDM product line by offering a Modular CWDM Chassis system. This modular system is designed to accept all of our CWDM functions, while offering the user greater flexibility in deployment. This CWDM Line is ideal for use in system designs where expansion or later modifications are important. Custom versions are also available to meet special applications.
AFOP also offers single stage and dual stage optical isolators, which minimize back reflection and reverse transmission at any state of polarization. The Polarization Insensitive Isolator (PII See Pentium II. ) is a low cost model with excellent performance including low insertion loss, high isolation, low PDL See page description language.

Light travels over singlemode fiber in two polarization states. . This device has an epoxy free optical path, making it ideal for use in enable high power EDFA (Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier) A device that boosts the signal in an optical fiber. Introduced in the late 1980s, the EDFA was the first successful optical amplifier. applications. It is available in both C and L band versions.
AFOP's Optical Circulators are non-reciprocal devices that redirect light sequentially from port-to-port in only one direction. In advanced optical communication systems, circulators are used for bi-directional transmission, WDM networks, fiber amplifier systems, and for optical time domain reflectometer (hardware) Optical Time Domain Reflectometer - A device used to perform Optical Time Domain Reflectometry. (OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) A test instrument that analyzes the light loss in an optical fiber. Used to find faults, splices and bends in the line, it works by sending out a light pulse and measuring its reflection. ) measurements. AFOP 3 and 4-port circulators feature a small package size, high isolation over a wide operational wavelength range, low insertion loss, low polarization dependent loss, and excellent stability.

About AFOP Founded in 1995, Alliance Fiber Optic Products, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets a broad range of high performance fiber optic components and integrated modules. AFOP's products are used by leading and emerging communications equipment manufacturers to deliver optical networking systems to the long-haul, metropolitan and last mile access segments of the communications network. AFOP offers a broad product line of passive optical components including interconnect systems, couplers and splitters, thin film DWDM (Dense WDM) The term given to wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) when significantly more channels were being added. Since WDM is increasingly more "dense" all the time, both terms are used synonymously. See WDM.
DWDM - wavelength division multiplexing components and modules, fixed and variable optical attenuators, and depolarizers.
