Fiber-cut optical switches are used for simulating optical layer fiber-cuts & packet errors; automating fiber test scenarios in manufacturing QA or Engineering test labs or compliance testing labs. These are all-optical switches which means it can be used with any protcol/speed (10G/40G/100G). More... 1xN or n(1xN) switches are used in test lab environment where one expensive test equipment needs to be shared by muliple optical devices. 1xN optical switches have one input and multiple outputs. The input light can be switched from input to to any one of the output at any given time. More...

Patch Panel Automation: MxN or n(1xN) switch

OMS MxN switch
MxN matrix or n(1xN) optical switches are used in automation of testbed connnectivity for various test configurations from remote. It reduces test configuration time as it doesn't require any physical fiber rewiring of testbeds for different set of test configurations. It allows efficient sharing of expensive optical test equipment which can save you thousands of dollars in capital cost.  It provides all-optical connectivity with no latency so it can be used with any protocols and speed.
