Optical protection

Optical protection

The Optical Line Protection Systems (OLPS) are vital components for critical fiber optic applications. They provide automatic fiber path switching to an alternate fiber route when main fiber connection has been disabled. The OLPS systems we provide are 1:1 which means their insertion loss attenuation is minimal to the circuit. All our OLPS are 19" rack mountable, with redundant and removable power supplies and network management modules for remote monitoring and reporting. The 1:1 protection system is based on two switching modules for both Tx and Rx paths against the 1+1 protection which only has one switching module but more than double insertion loss. OLPS are independent of the fiber optic wavelengths or speed, making them suitable for any kind of applications like: high density CWDM and DWDM aggregation, SONET, SDH, Ethernet or Fiber Channel transport.
Optical Protection Systems provide automatic fiber circuit switching on alternate back-up routes when main fiber fails. Such systems are independent of protocol and wavelength, working on CWDM or DWDM systems at any speed and/or channel.
