OZ Optics Optical Taps and Power Monitors Telcordia GR-468 Qualified

DRAFT RELEASE - Version 2.0

Ottawa, Canada - January 8, 2015

OZ Optics has completed Telcordia testing of its line of optical taps and power monitors for telecommunication applications. The products meet the requirements of Telcordia standard GR-468, “Generic Reliability Assurance Requirements for Optoelectronic Devices Used in Telecommunications Equipment” Taps built with ordinary singlemode fiber and with polarization maintaining (PM) fibers have been tested and qualified. This makes them ideal for incorporating into optical amplifiers, DWDM systems, or FTTX networks for real time monitoring and feedback. Inline taps are manufactured using a novel patented design that permits full automation, thus sharply reducing manufacturing costs.

Inline taps can be directly integrated into fiber pigtail assemblies, for packaging devices that rely on optical feedback. This allows the main device and the monitor photodiode to be packaged into a single housing, reducing both size and costs.

Optical power monitors combine the optical tap design with a photodiode in a single package. The device produces a current proportional to the optical power within the fiber. The small size and simple interface makes it very easy to design into optical hardware.

For a complete report of our Telcordia tests as well as detailed product information, see . For additional information contact OZ Optics.
