Why Third-party 40G QSFP+ Transceiver, Instead of OEM QSFP Module?

For the data center or network upgrade, a 40G network is a trending choice. Then where do you buy the 40G QSFP transceiver? Will you choose an OEM one or a third-party one? There are some differences between third-party 40G QSFP transceiver and OEM 40G QSFP transceiver, which will be shown below. Features of OEM 40G QSFP Transceiver Modules As…

The Most Common Uses of Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables have revolutionized the telecommunications industry. Using fiber optic cables, telecommunications links realize much higher data rates over much greater distances with lower loss. As a result of these advantages, fiber optic communications systems are widely employed for applications ranging from major telecommunications backbone infrastructure to Ethernet systems, broadband distribution, and general data networking. This article will introduce…

Introduction to Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA)

Optical amplifier, with the introduction in the 1990s, conquered the regenerator technology and opened doors to the WDM technology. It is mainly used to amplify an optical signal directly, without the need to first convert it to an electrical signal. There are many types of optical amplifiers, namely Raman amplifiers, erbium doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs), and semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)….

Fiber Optics or Wireless Network, Which is Better for Your Network?

Fiber optic cables convert packets of data into a stream of light. The light travels through the cables from sender to the receiver, which converts it back into its original form. While wireless communication converts the data by transmitting into electromagnetic waves for broadcasting. Both alternatives have advocates who regard them as the superior communication medium. So on earth which…
