Paper Abstract

The design of optical switching systems built to serve practical metropolitan network requirements is described. Applications considered include route diversity switching for the protection of transmission systems against cable outages automatic fault sectionalization using loopback switching centralized remote testing of fiber optic cable systems optical cutover switching for transmission equipment relocation and node bypass switching for the protection of transmission systems against loss of intermediate terminals.
