DiCon Fiberoptics Unveils New MEMS 1x128 Optical Switch for PON Fiber Monitoring

March 18, 2015

Richmond, CA–DiCon Fiberoptics unveils a new MEMS 1x128 optical switch module designed for PON fiber monitoring, as well as other applications requiring a compact, high fan-out 1xN fiber optic switch. This new module is based upon DiCon's industry proven, long-life MEMS optical switches, and is in a new form factor that will allow a 1x128 (or smaller) optical switch to be easily integrated into a rack mount or other housing.

"We are excited to announce our new MEMS 1x128 optical switch module," said Robert Schleicher, Vice President of Product Development. "This new module is going to be integral to the growing demand for carriers to monitor the health of their networks. It leverages our years of expertise designing and manufacturing MEMS optical switches, and continues our trend of expanding our fiber optic switch product line to best meet the needs of our customers."

The new MEMS 1x128 optical switch module can be made in any size up to 1x128, and operation can be optimized for any wavelength or wavelength range over 1290 – 1650 nm. The module is 185 mm x 136 mm x 26 mm in size, or approximately 7.3" x 5.4" x 1", with fiber pigtails on one end of the module, which should make it convenient to fit into a rack mount or other housing.

For more information on the MEMS 1x128 optical switch module for PON Fiber Monitoring, please visit DiCon Fiberoptics at OFC 2015 at booth 1418, or visit DiCon's website at MEMS 1x128 Optical Switch for PON Fiber Monitoring.
