Fiber Optical Switches
– Pure optical path with remote switching

Fiber Optical Switches

  • Pure optical path
  • Photonic switch
  • Transparent to data speed
  • Protocol independent
  • IP networks
  • Industrial networks
  • Telecommunications
  • Remote controlled
  • Cost efficient
  • Future proof
  • Flexible switch configurations

Evolving media and communication over IP demand high bandwidth network solutions. The Fibersystem fiber optical switches is a long-term solution for these networks since it is protocol independent and transparent to data speed. It uses a technology with mirrors and re-directing the light between fiber channels.

The fiber switch can be controlled remotely or through a front panel switch, depending on switch model. The optical path through the switch is purely optical, there is no optical to electrical to optical conversion. There is no electrical loss or electrical bandwidth limit on the fiber optical path.

As a standard, we apply latching in our switches, which means that in case of power failure, the switch will remain in current position. On request, we can instead apply non-latching, which means that the switch will return to original position.

Fiber Optical Switch


The principle of switching with mirrors between fiber connections.

Remotely operated switching

The Fibersystem fiber switches can be configured with remotely operated switch functionality. It is a combined remote switch and management functionality, running a built-in processor with operating system and a mini web server. By invoking software calls to the web server, the switch can be operated as desired.

Examples of applications

  • Industrial communication/protocols – Switching between data sources
  • Optical protection
  • Test systems
  • Remote reconfigurable add-drop Multiplexers
  • Remote provisioning of FTTH and dark fiber
  • Disaster recovery
  • Re-routing
  • Restoration of communication
