Pro Optix NANO Series Multiplexers

Ultra high density CWDM and DWDM Multiplexing

Ultra high density, modular, flexible and scalable multiplexing

A world’s first design utilizing CS connectivity in multiplexing, the NANO offers customers an unrivalled reduction in data center footprint, extreme flexibility and next-generation multiplexer design advantages.

The NANO series uses modular cassettes that fit within a 1U chassis or can be wall-mounted individually. This delivers a flexible solution that can be specified to your project needs easily through its use of a quick-swap modular tabbed design. The passive multiplexer modular design means you can simply mix CWDM, DWDM and other rack-based solutions within 1U. Based on CS connectivity its design delivers quick-swap and easy upgrades and installation, and because it is passive it does not need power. Learn about the MINI LC-based multiplexer series here >

Our Overview

Why Passive xWDM Multiplexing?

Expand the capacity of your existing fiber by splitting it into channels by utilising separate CWDM and DWDM wavelengths. With no electrical power or software required solutions are easy to install, maintain and are high in reliability.
