TELECOMMUNICATIONS - Service Provider Networks Switches

Enhanced Optical Network Monitoring and Testing

Polatis offers two solutions that make it possible for service providers to remotely monitor and test their fiber networks, and both include Polatis' patented DirectLight beam-steering technology that minimizes loss while drastically reducing switching times. With In-Line Monitoring and Protection Switching, Polatis switches are directly connected to all fibers for monitoring, and test equipment can be inserted to transmit test signals that locate fiber failures and optical power degradations. The Polatis In-Line Monitoring and Protection Switching solution offers service providers unmatched flexibility in automating optical network monitoring, provisioning and protection switching. Tapped Monitoring also offers the ability to monitor traffic at the lowest possible cost, and the Polatis Tapped Monitoring solution provides the lowest loss and is well suited for service providers seeking to remotely perform deep packet inspection, intrusion detection or signal power monitoring on their network.
