Reliability & longevity are a must in high fiber count Wider Area Network connections. The use of CWDM and DWDM systems that are still in the distant future in access networks, are in WANs already in use and established for many years. In addition, a continuous increase in transmission laser power can be observed, that requires the highest precision of the connector systems to reduce losses to a minimum. The right choice in this environment, are the proven system solutions from R&M. Equipped with connectors that meet the highest quality and transmission standards, network operators are well prepared for the present and future requirements.
