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 network equipment manufacturers can use Polatis technology to test emerging 40G and 100G implementations simply, smoothly and reliably. Polatis low loss characteristics ensure reliable and accurate test results and very fast switching speeds (>10ms maximum in an 80x80 switch) ensures efficient, effective test processes. Polatis optical switches can be used to augment existing Layer 1 test equipment to increase test bandwidth. Polatis optical switches can help network equipment manufacturers to get more bandwidth for their product test environments.
Polatis optical switches are built to last – and to deliver the capabilities that can make product testing even more reliable and efficient. Polatis technology enables test networks to increase test reliability and efficiency through:
Polatis optical switches can do a lot – in small, power-saving standalone and OEM form factors. Not only can they enable a variety of optical connectivity options – like integrated monitoring and testing and automated fiber distribution; they also can accommodate any speed (including 100G) and any protocol anywhere and anytime. This makes an investment in Polatis switches for equipment testing one that will last.
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 network equipment manufacturers get more flexibility from their testing environments.
More bandwidth (at a lower cost per Gbps), more reliability, more flexibility – they all add up to more capability at a much lower cost, faster and more cost effective product development cycles. When coupled with Polatis low insertion, operations, maintenance, and upgrade costs; it all adds up to fewer dollars spent to deliver a greater number of new products.
Polatis optical switches help network equipment manufacturers get more capability at a lower cost, and deliver more products more quickly from their test environment investments.
