Calient Optical L1 Switches

Calient photonic switches are a reliable and cost-effective solution for networks because the technology is transparent to data speed, and is protocol agnostic, thus it offers very high bandwidth and configuration flexibility as networks grow in speed from 10Gbps to 40Gbps and 100Gbps.

Based on field-proven 3D Optical MEMS technology that Calient has deployed in more than 80,000 optical connections globally, the photonic switches deliver a sweet-spot of high reliability, small form factor, low power consumption
and cost, and ease of use that allows the benefits of true all-optical switching to be realised for the first time in a wide range of service provider and data center applications.

The Calient photonic switches are an all-optical (OOO) switch that establishes, monitors, and changes connections between single-mode optical fibers using Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) optical switching. Connections are made between fibers carrying signals with any wavelength, data rate or protocol. Like a manual fiber patch panel or fiber distribution frame, any input fiber on the switches can be connected to any output fiber.
