Yenra : Networking : Intelligent Optical Switch : 160x160 port connections for integrated power level monitoring, variable attenuation, and photonic multicasting

Optical Switch

Half the height of the current product line, the Glimmerglass System 600 low profile, high density system is a dramatic improvement for developers of both commercial networks and mission-critical systems for government and defense.

Glimmerglass developed the System 600 for size and power-constrained environments that require reliable, remotely controlled management. Housed in a 4 rack unit (RU) chassis and operating with less power than a light bulb, the new System 600 supports a range of ports up to 160x160 with integrated optical power level monitoring, variable optical attenuation, and photonic multicasting.

System operators of commercial networks, mission-critical defense systems, advanced optical testing facilities and high-performance research networks rely on Glimmerglass to connect, monitor and manage light streams on optical fibers. Each Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical Switch delivers low loss, any-to-any fiber connections without regenerating optical signals so that customers can manage 10 Gigabit Ethernet, SONET/SDH, radio frequencies (RF), microwaves, analog and digital video.

Glimmerglass develops and manufactures intelligent optical switches that transform the way fiber-optic connections are managed and switched at the physical layer.
