  • Description

    Fiber Optic Network Bypass Switch, 2U Rackmount, ST®


    Quick Facts

  • Provides failover switching for multimode fiber optic 10-, 100-, or 1000-Mbps (including 10G Ethernet) networks.
  • The 18-slot rack comes with one A/B switch card group installed as one switching circuit and can be upgraded to hold up to five A/B switching circuits.

  • Further Details

  • Fiber ST and SC upgrade kits (sold separately) include one A/B switch card group and one controller card.
  • Each circuit's independent controller card provides automatic control of its respective A/B switch card group.
  • User-configurable controls for independent auto-bypass and auto-recovery switching functions.
  • Can be set up to automatically remove network monitoring devices from the network for maintenance while simultaneously providing basic network connectivity via the bypass path.
  • Or switch remotely using an Ethernet or RS-232 serial link to the controller card (a DB9 to RJ-11 adapter and an RJ-11 to RJ-11 crossover cable are included).
  • Issue ICMP echo request (PING) packets from an internal Ethernet node, through the normal network path, to any user-specified external Ethernet node.
  • Also supports manual toggle switching.
  • Highly reliable with non-latching telecommunications relays or non-latching optical switching mechanisms.

  • Don't risk costly downtime. If a problem occurs on your "normal" network path, this card-based system switches traffic automatically to a bypass or failover path to minimize service disruption.
