MEMS Multicast Optical Switches

MEMS MxN Rackmount OXC

DiCon's MEMS MxN Rackmount OXC is an integrated switch module based on DiCon's MEMS 1xN switch. Up to forty-eight MEMS 1x24 switches, twenty-four for inputs and the other twenty-four for outputs, can be interconnected to form a fully non-blocking, two stage, fan-out/fan-in Spanke Configuration. Under this matrix switch platform, different MEMS 1xN switches can be used to form customized MxN switch Matrices.


The MEMS MxN OXC is used in an optical network to dynamically configure the system. For Test and Measurement applications, the matrix switch is a simplified alternative solution for cable management and allows users to share resources. The rackmount chassis allows for convienient storage for all applications.
