Hello Jefferson,

I think you can do it use single mode fiber


Hope to help

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.


Thanks.

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

Giuseppe
