Net Optics has introduced a series of Network Simulation Test Boxes enabling emulation of any installed fiber-optic network. Designed for maximum test and measurement flexibility, each unit supports a range of applications, including system simulation, manufacturing test/quality control, and calibration.

Each Network Simulation Test Box is customized with fiber lengths from 100 meters to 100 kilometers. When daisy-chained together, they can emulate a simplex or duplex system of any length. Standard configurations allow testing and troubleshooting of any fiber topology, including ATM, SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, and Fibre Channel. They support all transmission speeds through OC-192.

Standard configuration options include Test Box height, fiber length, fiber type, and external connectors. Specialized configuration options include adjustable 2-meter pigtails to connect Test Boxes for simulating links longer than 100 kilometers. If a dedicated unit is desired, in-line attenuators can be incorporated for enhanced simulation of a particular topology and speed.

Net Optics Inc. (Sunnyvale, CA) offers a range of custom fiber and copper-based products, including analyzer switches, splitter taps, redundant port selectors, test and simulation products, and converters. For more information, visit the company's Web site at www.netoptics.com.
