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

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…
