Using A GLC-SX-MM Transceiver to Connect Gigabit Ethernet Network

If you are still using a 100BASE network or GBIC transceiver for a small office, you may run into the limitations of last decade’s technology. Because the 100BASE standard network is just fine for a small office, but it isn’t sufficient to handle heavier network use. As your network expands, you might experience problems like dropouts in your VoIP calls,…

Guide to BiDi Optical Transceiver

Pluggable optical transceivers typically use two fibers to send and receive optical signals between switches, firewalls, servers or routers. One fiber is to receiving data from networking equipment, and the other is to transmit data to the networking equipment. However, a new class of optical transceiver—BiDi transceiver uses only a single fiber to send and receive signals. The reduction in fibers leads to substantial cost-saving, especially in high-density applications. Besides that, BiDi transceivers also possess some unique features, which will be illustrated in the following article.

SFP+ DAC Cables for Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series Switch

The Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series provides scalable, fixed-campus aggregation solutions in space-constrained environments. As you can see from the picture below, Cisco 4500-X Series Switch is available in three versions—32-port, 16-port, and 8-port. An additional 8 ports of 1000BASE-X (SFP) or 10GBASE-X (SFP+) are also available in a removable Ethernet uplink module that mounts in a bay on the front of the switch chassis, and the uplink module is hot-swappable. Both 32-port and 16-port versions can be configured with optional network modules and maintain similar features and scalability.

Why Choose HP Compatible SFP+ Transceivers?

The telecommunication market is surrounded by a sea of fiber optic transceivers of different brands and originals or third-party ones, users are met with many choices. Since many name-brand networking companies charge too much for their transceivers, in most cases, users often buy smart, plug-and-play, and hot-swappable compatible transceiver modules to save money.

A Rundown of Fiber Optic Connectors

Most fiber optic connectors are known to be pluggable male connectors with a protruding ferrule that holds the fiber optic cables and aligns them for mating. They use a mating adapter to mate the two connector ferrules that fit the securing mechanism of the connectors (bayonet, screw-on or snap-in.).
