Key Features 1x1, 1x2 (2x1) and 2x2 (bypass) in both latching and
non-latching configurations
Hermetic packaging
Unilateral input/output fiber location
High durability
The JDSU Agile Optical Components family includes modulators, switches,
attenuators and tunable filters. These products provide the basis for spectrally
efficient DWDM transmission utilizing dispersion tolerant modulation, channel
monitoring, wavelength switching, remote power control and dynamic channel
selection. They support a wide range of flexible functionalities at lower
operational expenses for the Agile Optical Network. In addition, we have a
complete line of tunable lasers assemblies and sub-assemblies in our Agile
Transmission Module family.
The JDSU next-generation, all-optical miniature opto-mechanical (MOM)
fiberoptic switch is a single-mode component that increases network flexibility. Its
hermetic packaging provides high reliability under demanding central office
conditions and is GR-1221 qualified.
Collimated beam optics, an epoxy-free optical path, and a specially designed
mirror and moving prism mechanism enable excellent performance characteristics.
Directly mountable on printed circuit boards, the MOM switch is equipped with
status contacts to provide an electrical readout of the switch position.
On request, JDSU also provides customized modular assemblies that incorporate
taps, wavelength division multiplexers (WDMs), splitters, and other components.
The MOM switch's unique unilateral input and output fiber configuration is ideal
for these assemblies.
