The Photonwares MEMS 32×32 optical fiber switch is a leading solution to manage and monitor large optical networks intelligently and remotely, establishing optical signal paths in milliseconds. The switch system is supported by a robust software and control algorithms making the management of live traffic resilient to the effects of time, vibration, and temperature. Their unique capabilities enable the dynamic selection and distribution of optical signals for analysis and storage. The passive switch is bit rate independent, supporting all data rates.

Monitoring Applications – access signals for analysis in real time without disrupting traffic.

Reconfigure Applications – select, duplicate, and distribute optical signals to one or many locations.
