This function is particularly useful in a ring structure where a user can add a signal at any location without having to physical switch or apply a control function other then plugging the signal in.
The intelligent add/drop/pass can also be used on the tailgate of all outside broadcast trucks to select between electrical or optical signals, depending on location being close for electrical coax, or at a greater distance for optical connections. Plugging in one of these cable formats will route the signal automatically to the main routing system of the truck on the same input every time.
The miniHUB™ unique format flexible and application flexible properties give the customer a building block tool that provides Optical links, Optical distribution, Optical transponder, add/drop/pass networks, Ethernet distribution, all on the 1 card and all at the user’s discretion and now boost a range of passive optical device to complement.
