Tunable vs Standard DWDM SFP+ Modules

Nowadays, SFP+ modules have been largely applied to use. However, in order to meet the demand for greater transmission capacity, the Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) as a kind of technology, combining multiple data signals on laser beams at various wavelengths and transmitting them over a single optic fiber network is also in urgent need to combine with SFP+ modules. Currently, the…

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,…

10 Gigabit Ethernet – Why Choose it?

Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) has long been the dominant local area network (LAN) applications since Ethernet technology was born in the 1970s. But when it’s required to connect servers to storage area networks (SANs) and network-attached storage (NAS) or for server-to-server connections, GbE is not sufficient enough. As such, Ethernet has developed the later technology standard as newer, higher performing iteration—10GbE….
