What Does BASE-“n” Mean for Fiber Optic Transceiver?

The networking is a very complicated field. Especially, when it intertwines with many terms, it’s easy to make beginners get lost in it. In this article, we will explore the Ethernet network naming system as Base-“n” and its applications in fiber optic transceiver. Network Basics Before the subject, there are two terms we need to have a clear mind. The…

BiDi Optics: A New Solution for 40GbE Transmission

If your data center hasn’t shifted from 10Gbps to 40Gbps infrastructure, now it’s your chance by deploying 40GbE with BiDi QSFP+ optics (ie. Cisco QSFP-40G-SR-BD) at lower costs than using 40G QSFP+ optics.

40G Parallel & Bidirectional Optical Transceiver Introduction

Speeds in data centers have maintained their growth in the past years, and will continue to do so in the predictable future. High-data-rate systems have become increasingly popular among some enterprises for high-performance computing networks, such as 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) infrastructure, in which 40G fiber optic transceivers and cables are needed to ensure the high-performance and great-bandwidth of the…

Selection Guide to 40G QSFP+ Transceivers and Cables

In order to better accommodate the increasing demands that data center growth puts on the network, various bandwidth-delivering fiber optical products have been designed and developed by telecommunication equipment manufacturers. Among these fiber optical equipment, transceiver modules, one of the most critical components for establishing fiber links, have attracted more and more attention for their unique and sophisticated designs. There…

Considering Three Aspects Before Migrating to 40G

The dramatic growth of bandwidth requirements in data centers has led to the worldwide use of higher-performance optical products for network scalability, management, flexibility and reliability. Currently, 10GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) can’t meet the increasing needs of high speed transmission well for such applications as Big Data, cloud and Internet of Things being introduced in many industries. As such, network migration…
