Multicast Switch

The iMS™ NxM (e.g. 4×8, 8×8, 8×12 and 8×16) switch module provides a solution for any channels in any of N input ports be routed to any of M output ports. This product is not only the most cost-effective routing approach with colorless and directionless features, but also provides a unique and simple solution for contentionless wavelength management. iMS NxM is a key component to enable true agile network planning.
