Hi Giuseppe,

I was just concern on the distance and the power, since it should be use on long distances yet i will use it on short distance.

Hello Jefferson,

I used this setup with only few meters of fiber in lab setup and it worked well.

Sometimes you may need to insert a 5dB /10dB attenuator all depends on the power budget.

Hope to hope
