Title
(EN) OPTICAL WAVE BRIDGE ADAPTER
(FR) ADAPTATEUR DE PONT À ONDES OPTIQUES
Abstract
(EN) A bridge adapter that includes a first end and a second end. The bridge adapter further including a first ferrule connection on the first end and a second ferrule connection on the second end. The bridge adapter also including an optical path optically connecting the first ferrule connection and the second ferrule connection. Also, a method of connection optical cable having multiple pitches, the method including connecting a first optical cable having a first fiber pitch to a bridge adapter and connection having a second fiber pitch to the bridge adapter. The method further including directing an optical signal through the first optical cable, the bridge adapter, and the second optical cable, wherein the directing includes sending the optical signal through an optical wave bridge in the bridge adapter and having the first fiber pitch on a first end and the second fiber pitch on the second end.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un adaptateur de pont qui comporte une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité. L'adaptateur de pont comprend en outre une première connexion à ferrule sur la première extrémité et une seconde connexion à ferrule sur la seconde extrémité. Cet adaptateur de pont inclut aussi un chemin optique reliant optiquement la première connexion à ferrule et la seconde connexion à ferrule. La présente invention a trait également à un procédé de connexion de câble optique ayant plusieurs pas, le procédé consistant à connecter un premier câble optique ayant un premier pas de fibre à un adaptateur de pont et à connecter un second câble optique ayant un second pas de fibre à l'adaptateur de pont. Le procédé consiste en outre à diriger un signal optique à travers le premier câble optique, l'adaptateur de pont et le second câble optique, la direction consistant à envoyer le signal optique à travers un pont à ondes optiques dans l'adaptateur de pont et à prévoir le premier pas de fibre sur une première extrémité et le second pas de fibre sur la seconde extrémité.
