GAO's fiber switches have the following functions:

  • Signal Routing: GAO's fiber switches primary function is to route optical signals from one input fiber to one or more output fibers or ports. It allows for selective connection and redirection of optical signals based on specific criteria, such as wavelength, destination, or network conditions.
  • Signal Switching: Our fiber switches enable the switching of optical signals between different fiber paths or connections. They can establish or change connections between input and output fibers dynamically, allowing for the reconfiguration of network paths or restoration in the event of fiber failures or network congestion.
  • Optical Signal Protection and Redundancy: Our fiber switches can be used for signal protection and redundancy in optical networks. They provide alternate paths or redundant connections, to ensure uninterrupted signal transmission and minimize the impact of fiber or equipment failures.
  • Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM): GAO Tek's fiber switches are used in WDM systems by enabling the switching of optical signals at different wavelengths. They allow for the selective routing of specific wavelengths to desired destinations, facilitating efficient wavelength division multiplexing and demultiplexing.
  • Fiber Link Restoration: In the event of a fiber link failure or degradation, GAO's fiber switches can automatically or manually redirect the optical signal to an alternative fiber or path, ensuring continuous and reliable communication.
