The OP720 is an optical switch for single mode and multimode applications. This individual 1xN optical switch is available with up to 48 channels in a 2U format and incorporates the latest technology in high-speed switching. With high repeatability and low loss, the OP720 is ideally suited for high channel count optical devices such as DWDM, waveguides, and splitters.

A variation on the OP720, the OP722 is an optical switch that allows for two 1xN switches of up to 24 channels each to be controlled independently by the same 2U device.
