Understanding 100G QSFP28 and CFP

Today, as 100G Ethernet widely deployed and becoming an important part of the data center, network device developers are increasingly motivated to produce 100G optical transceiver. Moreover, the produced 100G optical transceiver must consume less space, achieve a lower price, and have better performance, such as QSFP28 modules and CFP modules. They are also the themes we are going to…

Tunable vs Standard DWDM SFP+ Modules

Nowadays, SFP+ modules have been largely applied to use. However, in order to meet the demand for greater transmission capacity, the Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) as a kind of technology, combining multiple data signals on laser beams at various wavelengths and transmitting them over a single optic fiber network is also in urgent need to combine with SFP+ modules. Currently, the…

Fiber SFP Module VS Fiber Media Converter

Many devices in the optical communication field are sharing similar functions, such as fiber SFP module and fiber media converter. They are designed as the equipment for photoelectric conversion. Some of you may get confused about the two seemingly similar devices. Don’t worry, in this article, we are going to reveal the secret between SFP fiber module and fiber media…

Understanding Ports on CWDM MUX/DEMUX

WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) is a commonly used technology in optical communications. CWDM and DWDM MUX/DEMUX are two important components in WDM systems, which are often deployed to join multiple wavelengths onto a single fiber. There are some ports on CWDM and DWDM MUX/DEMUX like channel port, line port, monitor port, etc. This article will focus on discussing the functions of ports on CWDM MUX/DEMUX. What is…

Copper SFP vs Fiber SFP – Which One is Better?

The battle between copper and fiber has raged for many years. Copper has been used for a long time while fiber has already established a niche in the industry. Someone even held that fiber might replace copper. This competition of copper and fiber also exists in the field of a transceiver module. Actually, there is a measurable distinction between copper SFP…

Fiber Optic Splitter Termination Box for FTTH Applications

Fiber optic splitter termination box provides a cost-effective solution for FTTH applications. Nowadays some manufacturers provide this type of box with pre-installed fiber splitters, adapters, splice trays or pre-terminated pigtail assemblies, which help to reduce installation time and cost and satisfy different requirements of customers. Today, this post mainly focuses on the basics of splitter termination box. Fiber Optic Splitter Termination…
