As part of its new product introductions, Polatis has planned live demonstrations of ten products to showcase the unique features and ultra-low loss performance. As part of the launch of the Trinity video product, Polatis will demonstrate optical switching of uncompressed high definition (HD) video signals in an end-to-end SMPTE-292 HD network. Polatis will integrate JDSU optical test equipment, as part of a "total test solution" demonstration, illustrating the power of a switch to effectively automate tests in design & production environments. JDSU has a worldwide distribution agreement with Polatis for its entire Instrumentation line of products. To illustrate the effectiveness of a switch as part of a fiber layer management strategy, Polatis will demonstrate the HPA product in a scenario where it will be used to actively monitor and locate fiber faults, and to allow restoration of services.
