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…

How to Choose PLC Splitters

PLC splitter is a simple passive component which plays an important role during the applications of technologies like GPON, EPON, and BPON. It allows a strand of fiber optic signal being equivalently split into several strands of an optical signal, which can support a single network interface to be shared by many subscribers. During the selection of a PLC splitter, split…
