Product description

The OLPS-4RM-DD is a high performance high density Optical Line Protection System for critical fiber optic transmission circuits. The chassis can hold up to 8 independent OLPS-35 1:1 optical protection cards. The chassis occupies 4RU of rack space offering double the density of the standalone OLPS-RM-35-AD system while bringing the cost per OLPS 1:1 protection system at the best value. The management system available on the 8 slot chassis allows management of all the OLPS-35 cards with a single IP address. The 1:1 protection system has the advantage of a very low insertion loss compared with 1+1 protection systems. The OLPS-35 cards offers only 1.2dB of insertion loss, making them a favored protection choice for tight optical budget applications.

The OLPS is an automatic system that switches fiber communication from a main fiber line to an alternate backup fiber when the main line communication is disabled. This is done by constantly monitoring the optical level of the main line. When signal level gets under a set threshold, communication is diverted on the secondary path in less than 35 miliseconds. Unit has management available via console and SNMP. Management allows set-up of threshold optical level for switching and behavior for recovery: automatic reverting to main when signal is restored, manual revert or no switch. The new OLPS-4RM chassis offers 19" rack mounting brackets with only 4RU of space used, saving vital rack space when necessary. The 8 slot OLPS rack can be loaded with OLPS-35 1:1 protection cards.

The OLPS chassis provides redundant power supply system with "hot swap" feature, to provide continuous operation. It can accomodate both AC (110V) and DC (48V) power supply units, either in mixed or same type of power input.
