MRV Announces 10 Gigabit, High Density Physical Layer Switch

MRV COMMUNICATIONS introduced a high-density 10 Gigabit physical layer switch that can be used to automate topology management in test labs and data center network monitoring applications. The High Speed Media Cross Connect (HS MCC) system fills the requirement for greater number of 10G ports in one system, by providing 144 simultaneous bi-directional, uni-directional or multipoint mappings. It uses a 10.7 Gbps switching matrix allowing 10 Gbps signals to be switched over a single path across the backplane vs. grouped and switched on multiple paths as is typical in traditional physical layer switch design.
