What is Optical Transceiver Module?

The speed and stability of the network are making a great leap forward thanks to the high bandwidth and low attenuation brought by fiber optics. The optical transceiver module is the major building block in the fiber-optic network, which conveys the information across communication channels for your optical systems. This article offers some rudiments about optical transceiver module and suggestions of choosing fiber…

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…

Fibre Channel SFP: Why Fibre Channel?

With the advent of SFP transceiver communication, there have been many different standards. In network hardware, the advantage of SFP transceivers is that they allow a single device, such as a switch, to support different cabling and transmission formats. However, when you try to find out which optical transceiver type you need, you will encounter problems. Because there are several…

Types of SDI Video SFP Optical Transceiver

SDI optical transceivers are known to many people, initially applied in the radio and television industry. SDI series optical modules include many types, such as SDI SFP optics(mainly includes 3G-SDI Video SFP, 6G-SDI Video SFP, 12G-SDI Video SFP), SDI SFP+ optical module(mainly includes 3G-SDI Video SFP+, 6G-SDI Video SFP+, 12G-SDI Video SFP+), etc. Then today we will talk about types…

QSFP28 CWDM4 vs. QSFP28 PSM4: Which One Is More Cost-Effective?

Although a series of 200G or even 400G optical transceiver products emerge in the optical communication market, and they have not yet been put into commecial use currently due to that they are still in the stage of preparation in some aspects. Thus, 100G optical transceiver modules, especially QSFP28 PSM4 and QSFP28 CWDM4, are still spoiled in various application fields….

Do You Know These about QSFP28 PSM4 Optics?

Although there have been 200G/400G optical transceiver products appearing in the optical communication market, and it does not mean that the era of 100G optical transceiver module has come to end. Actually, there still are various 100G QSFP28 optical module in great favour, such as 100G QSFP28 PSM4 and 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 optical transceiver, which meet users’ requirements for transmission…
