Read more about the product release on Corning's Press Release. Continue reading below for further details on Pretium Edge.
Pretium EDGE® Tap Modules, part of Pretium EDGE Solutions for data centers and storage area networks, enable passive optical tapping of the network while reducing downtime and link loss, and while increasing rack space utilization and density compared to other optical tap options.
Unlike other passive optical taps that must be added as a separate device in the network link, the Pretium EDGE Tap Module integrates the coupler technology for passive optical tapping into a structured cabling component – the module. Monitored ports can be added without disrupting the system’s live traffic and the elimination of the tap as separate device reduces insertion loss in the link.
Pretium EDGE Tap Modules use an advanced splitter technology for multimode to reduce insertion loss compared to traditional splitter technology.
Featuring the Pretium EDGE Solutions high-density module footprint, Pretium EDGE Tap Modules enable up to 72 monitored links per 1 rack unit, and they fit seamlessly into Pretium EDGE Solutions hardware for maximum cable management and better utilization of rack space.
