VFC Series Fiber Cut Simulation

The VFC1011-SM is a single-mode ten port fiber-cut switch based on VOAs (variable optical attenuators). It allows configuring the switching delay and the attenuation to simulate real-world fiber-cut scenarios in network resiliency testing. The VFC1011-SM switch can also be used as a multi-channel programmable VOAs to balance optical power in DWDM applications.
