The interconnection networks, based on fiber optic components, are designed to connect the nodes of tactical networks with the help of optical fiber cables. The Expanded Beam technology used preserves all advantages of signal transmissions through optical lines in harsh environmental field conditions.
For example, the tactical fiber optic cables with Expanded Beam connectors allow arranging the connection between headquarters and subaltern points in field conditions in a very short time. The flexible 2 – 6 fiber 6 mm outer diameter optical cables have a high crush and strain relief resistance and a rugged field repairable connector design. The wide range of cable drums has been developed to facilitate storage and handling with cable coils. The drums are designed to store up to 500 m tactical cable and the low weight of the cable coils allows easy network reconfiguration in field conditions.
The optical interface of the active networking device should be based on the same Expanded Beam
technology, preferably on the same standards used for installation of the passive infrastructure of the tactical fiber optic network.
The LMSW-10 ruggedized field switch has been developed according to the above mentioned requirements.
The switch combines all advantages: excellent optical network performance and rugged construction designed for operation in harsh environmental conditions. The LMSW-10-282 includes a 10 port switch (2 fiber optic, 8 UTP LAN ports) and a VoIP gateway with 2 FXS ports. The LAN1-4 ports offer PoE (Power over Ethernet) capability.
