SwitchLightTM is a patented, Layer 1 optical switching device designed for networking monitoring, test tool sharing, optical multicasting, and protection switching applications.
Customized to include an array of single mode or multimode optical switches from 1x1 to 1x128, SwitchLight is offered in a 1RU or 2RU chassis helping to save rack space. In addition to optical switches, passive WDM components can be integrated into our proprietary approach resulting in wavelength-selective switching capabilities.
Integration into any network environment is simple, as the device includes a software API that enables the use of multiple popular scripting languages like TCL, Python, and more.
Network Monitoring and/or Test Tool Sharing
Select a signal on-demand from multiple incoming fibers and route to a test device
Wavelength Selective Switching (WSS)
Select individual wavelegnths from an incoming signal and multiplex back onto a single fiber
Route an outgoing signal to one or multiple locations, turning on/off individual fiber paths
