A compact fiber optic network simulator that can emulate a physical network in the laboratory has been released by M2 Optics Inc.

The Fiber Lab 3200 is a rack-mounted optical fiber management package that the company says can be customized with virtually any fiber type or mix, including lengths, splices, and connectors to match a physical network’s specifications. Capable of simulating an optical network to 120 kilometres, it eliminates fiber and connector damage and yields fully repeatable results.

“The Fiber Lab 3200 holds up to four lengths and lets network developers emulate a physical network exactly in their laboratory to ensure that the systems will work as intended when deployed in the field,” the company said in a release. “Applications include product development and certification, long distance network simulation, latency and delay testing, and training.”
