Abstract

Single-mode 1 multiplied by N switch for 10-fiber ribbon has been developed. The switch has a movable 10-fiber connector plug and linear arrangement of 10-fiber plugs to be mated. The plugs are precisely aligned by inserting alignment pins. The tested 1 multiplied by 50 switch exhibits an average insertion loss of 0. 5 db for single-mode optical fibers with 10 mu m core. The minimum and the maximum switching times are 17 msec for port 1 to 2 and 80 msec for port 1 to 50, respectively. Insertion loss change after over 1000 times switching is less than 0. 1 db.
