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.

40G Bi-directional QSFP Transceiver

The virtualized workloads, cloud applications, and big data services today are driving previously server and data center fabric to an unimagined level. The existing 1Gbqs or 10Gbqs are gradually overwhelmed by higher-bandwidth like 40Gbps or 100Gbqs. Thus high-capacity optical technology and cabling infrastructure are required to support those servers and applications for 40Gbps upgrading. However, it might be too costly to replace all your equipment for 40G transition. So this article will introduce a cost-saving solution to help you smoothly migrate to 40GbE with the use of 40G BiDi QSFP+ transceiver.
