The company made the business commitment to allocate the sales and engineering resources required to fill the design and manufacturing requirements for these particular customers. The company’s challenge was to accomplish this design/build at a cost that was within the customer’s budget and also profitable to the company. The company found that through its years of experience designing and manufacturing its wide array of switches it had acquired the requisite knowledge base and the lean manufacturing techniques to satisfy both the customer’s budgetary needs and still benefit the company.
Custom network switches can include any type of control methodology:
Custom fiber optic switches have been designed to suit numerous customers’ unique requirements. As an example, a customer required a 16-channel ST simplex Fiber Optic A/B/Offline switch. The switch needed to fit into a standard 19” rack and be manually operated via a front-panel pushbutton. All 16 channels needed to be switched simultaneously and the switch technology needed to support Gigabit data rates. The switch had to provide optical data throughput scalability and be bit-rate and data transparent. If the power were lost, the unit needed to go off-line and not pass data; with the power restored, the unit needed to be in its last position. The company designed and delivered the Model 6259 16-Channel ST Simplex Fiber Optic A/B/Offline switch to meet this customer’s specific requirement.
