OS, Optical Switch

The TranScend optical switch facilitates automatic and cost-effective network backup and redundancy, increasing plant reliability by providing for a self-healing network. ATX’s optical switch reduces system costs by eliminating backup transmitters. It also increases system reliability and reduces downtime with automatic switching.
