What Is Optical Switching

Optical switching is the switching of an electrical field's transmission through a device between multiple ports.

How Does An Optical Switch Work?

Whether of the mechanical, electronic, or optomechanical type, optical switches work by opening or closing an optical circuit.

The AQ2200-412 OSW module is a space-saving 1 x 16 optical switch featuring low insertion loss and superior switching reproducibility, in a two-slot size module. This module allows to connect up to 16 DUT and improve testing efficiency in automatic test system.

Optical splitter for PON
Optical splitter is a key device in PON, GE-PON system in FTTH to split optical signal into 8 to 32 ports. In this test system, insertion losses for each port can be measured accurately and efficiently.
Measurement item: Insertion loss for each port with different wavelengths
(1310nm, 1490nm, 1550nm)

Application Note

This system does not require manual reconfiguration of optical paths and adjustments of EDFA input power, and that improves measurement throughput and avoids a human error.


Lack of reliable high-speed internet access in rural regions, due to complicated logistics and the considerable costs involved to extend land-based networks to these areas, has inspired a wave of next-generation applications that will provide greater accessibility and reliability. Making use of “space laser” networks, these revolutionary solutions can relay digital traffic via low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite systems to provide low-latency, high-speed broadband services to communities typically beyond the reach of standard wireless and fiber networks.
