The Fiber Lab 3200 is a 19" rack-mounted optical fiber management package that can be customized with virtually any fiber type or mix, including lengths, splices, and connectors, to precisely match a physical network's specifications. Capable of simulating an optical network up to 120 km in length, it eliminates fiber and connector damage and yields fully repeatable results.

Applications include product development and certification, long-distance network simulation, latency testing, delay testing, and training.

The Fiber Lab 3200 is priced according to fiber type and configuration. Price quotations are available upon request.
