- LGX modules
LGX modules are packaged in the industry-standard format originally designed by Lucent Technologies. All are passive, with no power or ground, and have front access faceplate connectors. They are deployed in the Optelian family of CMS passive mounting shelves, or in any standard LGX-compatible passive mounting platform. For information on the CMS shelves, refer to the data sheet. LGX modules for DWDM are available in single-slot and triple-slot widths.
- DMS modules
DMS modules are packaged in a format similar to LGX but are more compact in height. All are completely passive with no power or ground, and have faceplate connectors for front access. DMS modules are designed to fit in the Optelian DMS-0104 passive mounting shelf. For detailed information on the Optelian DMS mounting solution, refer to the data sheet. DMS modules for DWDM are available in single-slot and half-slot widths.

All cards are single-slot width.
- Splice trays
Optical devices are packaged in industry-standard outside plant (OSP) splice tray modules, such as FOSC-B. Custom packaging options are also available. Splice tray modules are designed to be installed in any general OSP enclosure, such as cabinets or huts.
