BILLERICA, Mass. and CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Polatis Inc., a supplier of high performance optical switch technologies, today announced its new high speed network optical switch module (N-OSM), the first all-optical matrix switch capable of addressing the need for fast switching and protection in the optical layer. The product will be demonstrated on the Polatis booth (#2615) at OFC 2008.

The Polatis Network-Optical Switch Module (N-OSM) is a high performance, fully non-blocking optical switch designed for OEM integration into optical transport and switching systems. Designed specifically for network operators and carrier equipment manufacturers, it is an ideal product where small size, speed and superior optical performance are required.

“The evolving landscape of data and communication networks has created a very real demand for flexible management of the transport layer,” states Aaron Bent, Polatis VP of Sales and Marketing. “Carriers are looking for better ways to manage their network resources, not just for provisioning of services, but also for non-intrusive - live - traffic switching and fast protection at the optical-layer.

“The Polatis N-OSM provides a new capability for access, metro, storage, undersea, and core networks.”
