Product Review

The CISCO 15454-AD-2C-50.1 offers a comprehensive solution with its capacity to manage 32 channels and the inclusion of cascaded passive optical interferential filters, ensuring efficient wavelength add/drop operations within a 100 GHz frequency range. However, its insertion losses, ranging from 1.6 dB to 3.1 dB depending on the section, may introduce some level of signal attenuation that could impact overall network performance in scenarios demanding ultra-low loss. Additionally, the device's software-controlled VOAs and the presence of multiple photodiodes and port level indicators enhance operational flexibility and monitoring capability, making it suitable for dynamic network environments.


The CISCO 15454-AD-2C-50.1 is a cutting-edge component designed for modern optical networks, offering advanced features to meet the needs of high-speed telecommunications. This device is engineered to enhance network efficiency and scalability by supporting 32 channels with an add/drop frequency within 100 GHz, utilizing cascaded passive optical interferential filters for superior performance. This unit comes equipped with two software-controlled Variable Optical Attenuators (VOAs), allowing for precise control over optical signal levels, which is essential for maintaining optimal network performance. Additionally, it features four photodiodes, enhancing its capability to monitor and manage the optical network effectively. For network administrators, the CISCO 15454-AD-2C-50.1 offers comprehensive monitoring capabilities through both card level and port level indicators. The device is equipped with three card level indicators, including a red FAIL LED, a green ACT LED, and an amber SF LED, providing clear, at-a-glance status information. Connectivity is a key strength of this device, featuring: - 8 LC-PC-II optical ports, - 4 ports for add/drop channel client input and output, - 2 ports for express channel client input and output, - 2 communication ports. These ports ensure flexible and efficient network configurations, catering to a variety of network architectures and requirements. The device's filters, both Trx and Rfx, have a shape of +/-180 pm, designed to ensure precise wavelength selection and signal integrity. In terms of physical dimensions, it measures 12.65 x 0.921 x 9 inches, making it a compact yet powerful solution for network infrastructure. Insertion loss is minimized across the board, with 2.7 dB or 1.6 dB in the express section, 3.1 dB or 2.6 dB in the add section, and 2.0 dB or 2.4 dB in the drop section. This efficiency reduces signal degradation and enhances overall network performance. The VOAs offer a dynamic range of 30 dB, accompanied by a maximum optical input power of 300 mW, ensuring the device can handle high-power signals without compromise. Designed for durability and reliability, the CISCO 15454-AD-2C-50.1 operates within a temperature range of -5 °C to 55 °C and can withstand a relative humidity of 5% to 95% during operation. For storage, it tolerates temperatures from -40 °C to 85 °C and the same range of humidity, ensuring long-term durability under various environmental conditions.
