RALEIGH, N.C., March 21, 2012 — A compact fiber optic network simulator that can be customized to emulate a physical network in the laboratory with high reliability and repeatability is available from M2 Optics Inc. The Fiber Lab 3200 is a 19-in. 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. Able to simulate an optical network to 120 km, it eliminates fiber and connector damage and yields fully repeatable results. The simulator holds up to four lengths and enables network developers to emulate a physical network precisely in their laboratory to ensure that the systems will work as intended when deployed in the field. Applications include product development and certification, long-distance network simulation, latency and delay testing, and training.
