Polatis optical switches not only have the lowest loss of any optical switch on the market (0.9dB typical insertion loss, 1.8dB maximum insertion loss on an 80x80 switch), they also are 100G ready today. That means that government and defense networks and applications can use Polatis technology to migrate from today’s 1G and 10G technology to tomorrow’s 40G and 100G speeds. Polatis optical switches can be used to augment existing Layer 1 technologies to increase network and application bandwidth. Additionally, Polatis optical switches can be used to include dark fiber assets in automatic protection schemes, providing additional bandwidth during peak times or increasing wide area network diversity.
Polatis optical switches can help government and defense agencies to get more bandwidth from their network and application investments.
Polatis optical switches are built to last – and to deliver the capabilities that can make government and defense networks and applications even more reliable. Polatis technology enables government and defense networks and applications to increase reliability through:
Using just one, or all of the capabilities of Polatis technology, enables government and defense agencies to get more reliability from their network investments.
Polatis optical switches deliver a secure networking environment for government and defense applications. Polatis optical switches not only integrate test equipment for network and security monitoring, they also include a software-based management system (with password-based access and account logs) that enables agencies to implement video applications that are safe and secure.
The ultra-low optical crosstalk of Polatis technology meets the most stringent government requirements for certification in multi-level security applications. Protocol flexibility allows government agencies to use Polatis switches in any optical networking environment – including those that require the most stringent security and encryption implementations (including support for NSA Class 1 encryption devices). Additionally, Polatis video distribution systems can also be managed using industry standard Crestron or AMX video controllers.
The result? Polatis optical switches help government and defense agencies implement more secure networks and applications.
Polatis optical switches can do a lot – in small, rugged, power-saving standalone and OEM form factors. Not only can they enable a variety of optical connectivity options – like APS, integrated network monitoring and testing and automated fiber distribution; they also can accommodate any speed (including 100G) and any protocol (including government and defense security protocols)– anywhere and anytime.
Additionally, Polatis low price points and diverse form factors make it easy to integrate optical switch technology into an almost unlimited range of applications, equipment, and management platforms.
Polatis optical switches can help government and defense agencies get more flexibility from their network and application investments.
More bandwidth (at a lower cost per Gbps), more reliability, more security, more flexibility – they all add up to more capability at a much lower cost for government and defense agencies. When coupled with Polatis low insertion, operations, maintenance, and upgrade costs; it all adds up to fewer dollars spent delivering a greater number of services.
Polatis optical switches help government and defense agencies get more capability at a lower cost from their network and application investments.
