Layer 1 Cross-Connect

Wire Once and Never Re-Cable with Pluribus VirtualWire Solution

A significant amount of lab testing time is spent planning and re-cabling the Layer 1 physical topology before any testing even occurs.  Plus, the process of monitoring the health of your infrastructure and troubleshooting connectivity issues can be cumbersome. Not to mention expensive lab equipment like signal generators can be underutilized, and lab setup can be prone to human error.

With Pluribus VirtualWire, you can quickly build new topologies in software in a matter of minutes with visibility and troubleshooting built-in, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional Layer 1 matrix switches.
