NORTH AMERICA : 800 498-JDSU (5378)

The JDSU polarization-insensitive fiberoptic circulator is a compact, patented,


high-performance lightwave component that routes incoming signals from Port 1
to Port 2, and incoming Port 2 signals to Port 3. This component provides high
isolation, very low insertion loss, low polarization dependent loss (PDL), low
polarization mode dispersion (PMD), and excellent environmental stability.
