Switch Protection Module
The Lumentum switch protection module offers quick protection and restoration to prevent data loss due to cable failure, port failure, or catastrophic failures. An optical signal is split into diversely routed fibers. When a failure occurs, a 1x2 switch in the module selects the optical signal from the backup fiber.
This physical layer solution is able to isolate failures with a faster recovery time and simpler implementation compared to other protection solutions. It can be directly mounted on printed circuit boards. The solution is also Telcordia qualified for maximum reliability.
Various packages and protection mechanisms are available upon request.
