Artel’s DigiLink media transport platform offers a comprehensive set of optical multiplexing solutions for DWDM, CWDM, and WDM. These multiplexers, in conjunction with other DigiLink solutions or third party equipment, allow the creation of flexible, space and fiber efficient, optical networks.

Artel designed its optical multiplexing products to address the issue of space and fiber constraints. For space efficiency, each module takes only one bay in a DigiLink chassis. By using ITU standard filters and optics, multi-vendor, cost-effective, and fiber efficient video and Ethernet can be created. Completely passive and designed with the latest optical filters, Artel’s DWDM, CWDM, and WDM solutions are extremely reliable, cost-effective, and feature low insertion losses.
