2015, Reviewing The Development Of FS.COM's Optical Switches

By FS.COMJanuary 1, 2015

Jan. 1st, Shenzhen, FS.COM News - With the development of optical fiber communication technology and wide application of DWDM (dense wavelength-division multiplexing), optical switches have become a very important component of the optical network. In the beginning of 2015, let's have a review on the development of FS.COM's optical switches.

In the last decades, with the development of optical fiber communication technology and wide application of DWDM (dense wavelength-division multiplexing), optical network has become the trend of network development. And optical network technology mainly depends on the improving devices and technology of optical switches, optical filters, optical amplifiers etc. as well as the DWDM. Development of DWDM technology and the related technology seem not only to be an important factor in promoting the development of optical communication but also a great opportunities and challenges of manufacturers and telecom operators. Meanwhile, the optical switches, as a key component in the link of development, has gained an increasing attention.

At present, the types of optical switches on the market are primarily the mechanical optical switches and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) optical switches. For the former, thanks to the continuous development of technology in recent years, the opto-micro-mechanical optical switches overcome the defects that traditional mechanical optical switches have. The MEMS optical switches, as the advanced optical switches which is compact, lightweight and easy to expand as well as the combination of the advantages of mechanical optical switch and waveguide optical switch while overcomes their defects bring a big vitality for the communication field and are popular with many users. In addition, the appearance of magneto-optic switch, liquid crystal optical switch, acousto-optic switch, waveguide optical switch and thermal optical switch are satisfied different requirements in network application.

More than a year ago, FS.COM has been launched several commonly used optical switches on the official website to improve the product lines and put great emphasis on its research. Though the optical switch is only a small size component, it plays a very important role in the optical network transmission and is widely used in optical switching, configuration optical add/drop multoplexer(OADM), optical fiber ring protection and optical cross and connection system.

FS.COM is always committed to offer a perfect solution, excellent products with good price and high quality for optical communication and telecommunication fields. With relentless efforts of the researchers and technicians, currently, FS.COM produces four series of high performance optical switches, including opto-mechanical optical switch, MEMS optical switch, solid-state optical switch and rack mount & benchtop optical switch. Switch types, such as 1x1, 1x2, 1x4, 1x8, 2x2 as well as dual 1x2 and 2x2 bypass for single mode fibers, multi-mode fibers, non-latching and latching are available. Additionally, 1xN rack mount and bench top optical switches are ideal for high-volume manufacturing production testing.

Apart from the optical switches, FS.COM's R&D team also apply the optical switching technology to many other devices. The most outstanding application is the use of optical switching technology in fiber protection system. The optical bypass protection system use the technology of optical bypass switch, and gives a good performance in PDH, SDH system, C/DWDM system, electric power communication private networks and CATV networks for the optical line monitoring.

In the developing progress of science and technology, people's exploration of optical network will keep on moving. A new, great optical switch which can achieve faster switching speed, large-capacity and low-loss will be emerging. And meanwhile, many devices must to be update to fit the trend. As an advanced optical communication products manufacturer and supplier that owns an excellent R&D team, FS.COM will do our best to develop and product the best products to satisfied all our clients' demands.
