Loss calculation example
The connector losses for both line and client site are included in the specified parameters. Thus in the example no extra loss has to be taken into account for the fiber patch cord from the WDM transceiver and for the patch cord towards the line fiber.
In this example the long distance fiber has a link loss of 14.0 dB. Additonal 4 dB, caused by the Mux/Demux link loss (T-3009), must be added to the fiber link loss. An optical WDM transceiver will therefore experience an 18 dB loss in total. Please note that this is a worst case calculation and typical values are much better.
In summary, SmartOptics passive WDM solution portfolio is designed for interoperability, reliability and simplicity.
