XENOptics SOS-288 Overview
The XENOptics SOS-288 Remote Smart Optical Switch (SOS) breaks new ground by replacing manual Optical Distribution Frames (ODFs) and patch panels with remotely managed and fully automated systems.
Remote Fibre Management
The foundation of the Smart Optical Switch (SOS) is our proprietary patented 3D optical switching (3DOS) topology which delivers superb optical performance and complete traffic protection. Once the SOS is installed by splicing the system, all reconfiguration, monitoring, troubleshooting and maintenance operations are done remotely. This capability dramatically lowers the total cost of ownership of the fiber infrastructure and offers very rapid return on investment
The Core Technology
The Optical Fibre Switch technology combines an active switching system and a passive latching mechanism, enabling automated provisioning and configuration. The Main Control Unit controls all switching elements, monitors real-time status of cross-connections and network performance, and transmits data and alarms to the central network management system. In addition, it enables SNMP/TL1 interfaces, which connect to existing operational support systems (OSS).
