Passive components



Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) splitters follow a specific manufacturing process for optical passive network components. They consist of a waveguide array that is applied to a silica chip by using a photolithographic masking process. HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of PLC splitters for all applications.

CUBO provides a great variety of hi-isolation bandsplitters, based on Thin Film Filters (TFF): Simple Wideband WDMs which create two channels at 1310 & 1550 nm, each with a bandwidth up to 100 nm. Or different CWDM bandsplitters for CWDM upgrades and extensions from e.g. 4 channels to 8 channels. Here, an important characteristic is the number of skipped (not-useable) channels, reaching from 0 to 2 channels.

Our Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitters are a complementary splitting option to the fused couplers. When it comes to higher splitting ratios (> 1:4) they offer a lower loss and an overall better performance.

This makes them the ideal choice for FTTx applications with splitting rations of up to 1:64. We offer them as plain devices with or without connectors but as well packaged in accordance with your specific needs in splice trays, cassettes, line cards modules etc.

Network cubes

Network cubes

HUBER+SUHNER Cube Optics has specialised on optical wavelength division multiplexing. We offer all types of optical muxes, ranging from simple Wideband WDM over Coarse WDM to Dense WDM. We are able to combine the different WDM grids and/or cascade several muxes in order to create optimal solutions suitable to each customer’s needs.

We are very much aware, that each customer has a specific background and therefore a unique network architecture. In order to suite individual needs, we have products that are aimed for point to point or ring deployments (OADMs), that mix and match specific lambdas of different grids or use band splitters in order to allocate more than one wavelengths to certain locations.

Most customers will find products in the following pages covering their needs, but we encourage you to give us the chance to come up with a customised solution for your needs.
