Ahh sorry I didnt realise the intention was to run the CWDM itself thro it, I 
thought this was for the output


Ok well I'm not an optics expert but I wasnt aware multimode was capable of 
carrying more than a single wavelength because of interference/dispersion 
effects etc

Sounds like you need a singlemode-multimode convertor, available from various 
places, cost around $600

Highly unlikely that it'll do CWDM, at least at that price.

Transmode (www.transmode.se) does converters to order, they'll fix things 
that'll do pretty much any to any (850 / 1310 / (1490-1610) in any 
combination) including 3R and management (which implies that you need 
ethernet onsite which might be tricky).

I'd believe they're more in the $3k-$5k range with CWDM optics though. If 
you need OC48 that'll hike the price up even more.
