echola systems optical switch and fiber-cut products

Echola Systems optical switches come in three types: Fiber-cut, 1xN (1x1, 1x2, 1x4, 1x8...) or n(1xN), and MxN(Matrix) switches. The fiber-cut switches are VOA-based (Variable Optical Attenuator) switches used for simulating fiber-cut fault scenarios. It can also be used as a multi-channel programmable VOAs to balance optical power in DWDM applications. The 1xN switches have single duplex input and N duplex outputs. The light can be switched from the input to any one of the output at any given time. So it can be used to share one expensive optical device with multiple (N) optical devices. The n(1xN) switches are similar to 1xN but have many 1xN switches in single enclosures. MxN, on the other hand, is a non-blocking matrix switch with M inputs and N outputs. Light can be switched from any input to any output port. The MxN and some configurations of n(1xN) type switches are used in optical patch panel automation applications.

All switches come with single-mode or multi-mode options but multi-mode versions are usually costlier than single-mode. The number of ports is configurable in most 1xN and MxN models, but there is a maximum ports limit for each type of switch. The following is a list of some standard configurations.
