OS, Optical Switch


This optical switch facilitates automatic and cost-effective network backup and redundancy, increasing plant reliability by providing for a self-healing network. It occupies a single-slot in a 2RU ChromaFlex chassis.  The wide input range (-10 to +15 dBm) meets a variety of application needs. Each optical switch has 2 optical inputs and a single optical output which can be operated as a 1×2 or a 2×1 optical switch.  Its internal detector measures the input optical level and switches when the optical level drops below the user defined threshold.


  • Operates in both 1310nm and 1550nm windows
  • Direction insensitive
  • SNMP remote monitoring
  • Reduces system costs by eliminating backup transmitters
  • Increases system reliability
  • Reduces downtime with automatic switching
