For the best possible performance and reliability, SplitLight utilizes premium low-loss splitters.  In addition, the HD chassis uses MTP-12 Elite® Connectors from USConecTM to keep insertion loss at an absolute minimum.  As with all products from M2 Optics, every optical tap shelf is diligently tested prior to shipment.“With rack space being a premium in data centers, POPs, and carrier networks, it is imperative that optical tap solutions take up as little space as possible”, states OJ Johnston, General Manager of Switching & Monitoring Solutions at M2 Optics.  “While many vendors claim to have the highest density, none have matched the 1RU, 128 splitter configuration that M2 Optics has successfully developed for organizations seeking greater efficiency and flexibility.”

Since every optical tap shelf is customized according to specification, pricing for the SplitLight is based upon the exact configuration required.  To receive more information, please contact M2 Optics or a local authorized partner.
