MAP Optical Matrix Switch Module (mOSX)

Low loss Optical Matrix Switch LightDirect module for MAP Series to enable parallel test processes

The MAP Series mOSX-C1 optical matrix switch is part of the broader VIAVI test automation switch portfolio. More than just a switch, the mOSX-C1 is a low loss, flexible test path manager. Connecting multiple test paths across the switch fabric enables parallel test processes and dramatically reduce the cost of test.

The mOSX switch is a low insertion loss (< 1.0 dB typical and <1.5dB max), fast switching (< 25ms to full specification) and non-blocking matrix switch. The switch fabric supports a unique any-port to any-port connection fabric and enables both symmetric MxM(for example 8x8), and asymmetric topologies (4x12 for example), thereby enabling users to reconfigure the switch on demand.

Benefits

  • Increase capital utilization factors, enabling on demand, parallel test architectures
  • Replace multi-layer switching architectures, reduces loss and reconfiguration times
  • Minimize switching variant Drives deeper integration and reduces test set size.
  • Drives deeper integration and reduces test set size.

Applications

  • Test system automation for multi-port components, modules and line cards.
  • Manage complex manufacturing test sequencing.
  • Can be paired with MAP-Series mOSW modules to create larger more complex switching systems

Key Features

  • Non-blocking, bidirectional matrix switch
  • Wide wavelength range, 1250 to 1675 nm
  • 1.0 dB typical insertion loss
  • 25ms switching speed
  • Flexible SCPI remote interface or MAP
  • Series Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Connections between ports can be disabled or re-enabled

Battery / Bag Replacement Coverage
Batteries and bags wear out with daily use and charge cycles. To ensure these items don't slow you down, our 5 year plans include a replacement over the life of your 5 year plan.

VIAVI will provide a one-time replacement of bad battery and worn soft bag/glove within the duration of a 5-year SilverCare or MaxCare Support Plan. Replacement will only be replaced when the instrument is returned to VIAVI for repair or calibration service. Hard cases are excluded, and coverage is not applicable for instruments sold without bag/battery.

This coverage is Included in 5 year Silver and MaxCare Plans

Technical Assistance
The VIAVI Technical Support team can assist you in using/configuring products or address issues regarding product performance.

Visit our Technical Assistance section for more information.

MaxCare Accessory Replacement Coverage
Instrument products come with accessory cables and connector tips. To ensure reliable, accurate testing we will cover the replacement of one accessory annually, to ensure good test results.

When an accessory has been determined to be defective or faulty, VIAVI will, at no charge to customer, either repair the accessory or exchange at VIAVI’s discretion. Exchanged accessories may be new or refurbished. All returned accessories become property of VIAVI. The following limitations apply: no more than one accessory may be exchanged per 12 month period; applicable accessories include only those accessories that are considered essential to the operation of the instrument and were shipped with the original purchased product. The Customer is responsible for shipping faulty accessory back to VIAVI when there is a concern or during a calibration or repair service event.

Express Loaner
Now you can schedule calibrations or repairs with no downtime. The Express Loaner Service provides you with a similarly configured piece of equipment before sending yours in for calibration or for that unexpected repair that you need immediately.

Why calibrate?
MAP (Mainframe/Module)Bronze-3

Why calibrate this product?
What are the common issues?

Factory standards to ensure accuracy MAP

Why calibrate this product?

It is essential in manufacturing environment to ensure your product meets the published/customer requirements. Having accurate measurements ensures highest possible yields whilst maintaining product specifications. Ensuring all that the optical test equipment is performing as designed and calibrated is requirement in achieving that goal.

Viavi will validate measurement accuracies conform to published specifications.

Maintain connectors and pigtails.

Factory standards to ensure accuracy

VIAVI is a TL9000 company and calibrates this instrument based on general requirements for the competence of calibration and testing laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025:2005) to ensure your instrument is certified to measure accurately. Instruments that are out of calibration will produce unreliable measurements and can create false passing or false failing test results that often cause your team repeat work. We maintain, polish and clean all fiber connectors, fix pigtail connections that are internal to the product to ensure all parts stay in good working order and upgrade software / firmware to the latest approved release to enable enhancements. VIAVI Care Plans are the most cost-effective way to plan for calibration with a low, discounted price at the time of instrument purchase.  Fixed rate calibration can also be purchased later via a separate purchase order.

  • Ensure accurate measurements that meet design expectations and optical budgets.
  • Maintain ports and connectors to keep signals working properly and to extend the life of the instrument. For example, if optical connectors or lasers are bad or interface ports are loose then after repeated connection cycles, optical measurements may be inaccurate or damage may occur.
  • When manufacturing optical network products, accurate, reliable and repeatable optical measurement performance is essential to compliance with published/committed product specifications
  • Know that optical product design, product manufacturing and customer expectations are accurate and in alignment throughout product lifecycle

Most business common implications MAP

How will my measurements be affected if the product is out of calibration?

Inaccurate measurements may prevent verification of power levels or introduce other measurement uncertainties, errors and artifacts. Out-of-calibration instruments can result in design errors, production problems, end customer escalations, increased failure rates, audit non-compliance or even ultimately loss of business. 

What are the most common implications of these issues to the business?

  • Uncalibrated tools produce unreliable measurement results that can't be certified to specifications and may violate product agreements or ISO/TL9000 standards with your customers and their network equipment vendors.

  • Design errors resulting from inaccurate measurements can result in ongoing issues throughout the product lifecycle including poor yields, inaccurate optical budgets, increased return rates  and customer expectation mismatch.

  • Production costs can be elevated by increased re-work, reduced yield and inconsistencies between measurements.

Common Business impacts include:

  • Lost revenue, customer complaints and increased costs.
  • Quality audit failures.
  • For end customers, repeat product quality issues with vendors often cause added cost, customer dissatisfaction and loss of business.
