The Skybox is the technical solution that enables partners to reprogram and tune independently Skylane Optics transceivers.
It can be used to change the compatibility of SFP/ SFP+ / SFP28 / CSFP, QSFP+ / QSFP28 and XFP transceivers to suit equipment from a wide range of vendors including Cisco, Juniper and HP. The device is portable, can operate on battery and can be controlled via wired and wireless connection from a wide range of computing devices including Windows, Android and (soon) iOS ones. This makes it suitable for field operation and gives Skylane Optics partners a great flexibility in their transceivers deployment and management.
Coding history is also available to partners who can now monitor how their staff has changed transceiver compatibility over time.
