Automate your lab with a pure photonic optical Layer 1 switch.
CALIENT Technologies is the global leader in pure photonic Optical Circuit Switching with systems that enable dynamic optical layer optimisation in next generation data centres and software defined networks.
CALIENT’s 3D MEMS switches allow data centre operators to dramatically improve utilisation rates of expensive compute resources which typically account for 75 to 90% of investment.
Data centre operators and metro service providers also deploy CALIENT switches at the edges of their networks to facilitate multi-layer network optimisation for maximum efficiency and flexibility. In this application the optical circuit switches support network-wide implementation of SD-WAN regardless of the vendor or vintage of the optical transport system.
MOVE THE LIGHT, NOT THE FIBRE
Automating the optical fibre infrastructure in product development and manufacturing test laboratories is an application where optical circuit switching delivers tremendous value. As more labs migrate solutions to 100 Gbit/s, 200 Gbit/s and 400 Gbit/s, traditional OEO automation solutions are either extremely expensive or simply unavailable.
The protocol and speed transparency of CALIENT’s S-Series Optical Circuit Switches (OCS) also delivers an additional benefit in labs – as interface rates scale in future the OCS requires no upgrade, meaning that the total cost of ownership is extremely low.
