Superior Optical Performance
POLATIS offers superior optical performance for test and measurement.
Low insertion loss minimizes impact of test results per connection with ULTRA performance
on switches up 96x96.
Low return loss minimizes impairments of higher bit rate signals and low crosstalk enhances
High stability connections protect the integrity of test results.
Physical Layer Optical Circuit Switch Technology
Patented DirectLight TM piezo-actuated beam-steering fabric with absolute position sensors
enables the highest performance and reliability characteristics of any optical switch without
the drawbacks of traditional optical switch architectures.
Switching is independent of light color, direction or power level.
POLATIS switches can make and hold dark fiber connections.
Modular Fabric Scales from 16x16 to 576
A wide range of switch matrix sizes, all in rack-mount chassis, to suit differing scales of
Module form factors available for OEM integration.
A high reliability architecture means that customers can rely on POLATIS switches for testing under stringent requirements.
Dual redundant power supplies, fans and network interface cards are all field replaceable units to support highest availability possible.
Dark Fiber Switching
POLATIS is the only switch on the market to support True Dark Fiber Switching (DFS), where
a connection can be made and held without light on the fiber.
Polatis offers the only true dark fiber switches on the market.
DFS simplifies turning up or restoring testing where signals may be intermittent.
DFS minimizes the delay in turning up tests across multiple test scenarios.
POLATIS offers a broad range of command line and SDN application interfaces so developers
can efficiently manage, control and scale network resources.
POLATIS switches are supported by many of the leading test automation and orchestration
