Change-over to Norwia @ IBC 2015

Norway: Norwia AS (Stand 10.A12), the leading supplier of next generation optical distribution products, today announced the latest addition to the miniHUB optical distribution platform. The OX-20-2XX optical module completes the redundancy structure needed by mission-critical optical applications as a standalone or integrated solution

The OX-20-2XX can be used to switch entire multiplexed optical streams in reaction to a fiber fail or at a predetermined optical signal level. The change-over card also has manual change-over from relay contacts or via the miniHUB control software, RCON. The OX-20-2XX optical change-over module comes in a 2 x 1 or 2 x 2 configuration with an option of optical signal loss detection.

Application areas for the change-over switch include complete site release, which ensures the fiber continuity is ensured by bypassing the site and keeping fiber integrity for the fiber ring. Additionally, it can provide a main and redundant path change-over and automatic detection of fiber loss.

This fully integrated product uses the latest optical components to keep attenuation levels to the lowest on the market. This is very helpful when optical budgets are stretched and every dB of light is valued.

Tracey Ford, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Norwia expanded, “The OX-20-2XX module fits seamlessly with the miniHUB optical distribution system to provide solutions for broadcasters, fiber vendors, sporting delivery systems and telecommunication providers. The high quality and flexibility of the miniHUB platform with the new OX-20-2XX change-over switch makes a perfect companion for mission-critical optical solutions.”

Visitors to the Norwia booth at IBC (Hall 10, Stand A12 – Amsterdam, 11-15 September 2015) will be able to see the optical change-over solution first hand and discuss the benefits with experts on site.
