M2 Optics’ SPLITLIGHTTM ultra high-density tap and passive WDM multiplexer solutions provide the highest density and scalability of taps and multiplexers available in a single RU. With SPLITLIGHTTM, data centers, carriers, enterprise, and government entities can monitor more fibers and wavelengths than ever without taking up valuable rack space. Likewise, GPON network operators can use SplitLight to provide unprecedented capacity.
The SPLITLIGHTTM patent-pending 3D design, consists of three chassis: Low-Profile (10"), Standard (13”), and High-Density (20”). The 3D design enables SplitLight to maximize density and scalability while drastically reducing rack space. For example, a traditional LGX-style solution would require half of an entire rack to accommodate the same number of passive optical components as a single, 1RU SPLITLIGHTTM supports.
SPLITLIGHTTM is an extremely flexible solution with support for the following:
- Power ratios from 50/50 to 97/3 (can be mixed)
- Single-mode or multimode fiber
- MTP, LC, or SC connector options on both chassis
- Multiple splitter types (1x2, 1x3, 1x4, and 1x8/16/32/64)
- Integrated passive WDM muxes and network taps
- Front or rear facing connections, or a combination
- Custom-labeled faceplates
In addition, SPLITLIGHTTM chassis provide the option to be front or rear rack-mounted. When MTP connectors are used, M2 Optics also offers fan out cables to other popular connectors options at varying lengths.
For the best possible performance and reliability, SPLITLIGHTTM uses low-loss splitters. In addition, the HD chassis uses MTP Elite Connectors from US ConecTM to keep insertion loss at an absolute minimum. Each connection is diligently tested prior to shipment.
