Calient MSM-320 Optical Circuit Switching Subsystem
The MSM-320 is a fully self-contained 320 port optical circuit switching subsystem designed for deployment in OEM solutions. It contains the 3D-MEMS switching core together with mirror driver circuitry and a dual redundant Control Processor (CP). The Control Processor is the heart of the optical circuit switch. It provides overall system administration functions, processes switching commands, and operates mirror alignment algorithms which continuously optimize insertion loss on all 320 active paths through the switch.
In order to optimize insertion loss and to compensate for any environmental stress on the system, the MSM must be supplied with measurements of input and out power levels on all 320 switch ports. This can be achieved by adding OMM-320 Optical Power Monitoring Subsystems on the input and output fibers or alternatively by accessing optical power monitoring data from transceivers connected to the switch.
