Optical Switch Tray OST Optical Switch Tray The Polatis OST family of products set the industry benchmark for performance in a compact, fully non-blocking optical switch. The OST is an ideal platform for network-level switching, given its ultra-low loss, fast switch speed, and high reliability for fiber routing, IP over optical, and client-side switching. The ability to manage bi-directional traffic and switch dark fiber provides network operators with an ideal tool for fiber-layer monitoring. The OST also excels in test environments, providing physical-layer connectivity for sharing of high value equipment and for automation of test sequences in design, verification, and manufacturing systems. Its instrumentgrade performance ensures the maximum signal fidelity, with ultra-high stability and repeatability. The OST is available in both symmetric (NxN) and asymmetric (MxN) port configurations, provided in a standard 19" rack mount enclosure. KEY FEATURES • Ultra-low insertion loss • High repeatability • High signal stability • Low polarization dependent loss • Fast switching speed • High power handling • Dark fiber switching • Fully non-blocking • Bi-directional operation • Protocol and bit rate independent • Ethernet, RS232 and GPIB options • Standard protocols: SCPI, TL1 DirectLight® Technology All Polatis products are based on the patented DirectLight beam-steering technology, setting the benchmark for reliable, high performance switching. Polatis also offers multimode OST and Reconfigurable single mode OST products, as well as a range of optical switch modules and standard backplane optical cards.
