Copper Cable vs. Fiber Optic Cable

When we try to compare the fiber optic cable with copper cable, we may be thrown into trouble most of the time. Actually, it is too difficult to be impartial because the pros and cons between them are so clear. Apparently, fiber optic cable outweighs copper cable in the aspect of speed or bandwidth. It is much faster than copper…

Three Factors That May Destroy Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cable, which has become the essential component of nearly all modern computer and communications systems nowadays, has been deployed all over the world. Where there is a city, there are thousands of fiber optic cables connecting people to the networking systems. Without them, it’s hard to get the information in real-time. But there is a problem that once the fiber optic cable is damaged or cut, it may cause a big loss because of the network disruption. And we know that fiber optic cable is made up of pure glass, in some cases, it may be very fragile. This article gives you three factors that may destroy the cables.

Gigabit Ethernet, Transmission Mechanism for 1000BASE Standards

Driven by growing Internet-based operations and the increasing delivery demands for time-sensitive applications, there appeared a boom in the deployment of 10/100M Ethernet or Fast Ethernet due to the low cost and compatibility with existing local area networks (LANs) over the past few years. Thanks to the advances in Ethernet technology, the Gigabit Ethernet, 1GbE, (1000M Ethernet) has been deployed as the later development of the Ethernet standard beyond the 100Base-T version. And this 1GbE has proven itself as an ideal solution for the increased bandwidth requirements of growing networks in data centers with the time passing by.

Considering Three Aspects Before Migrating to 40G

The dramatic growth of bandwidth requirements in data centers has led to the worldwide use of higher-performance optical products for network scalability, management, flexibility, and reliability. Currently, 10GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) can’t meet the increasing needs of high-speed transmission well for such applications as Big Data, cloud, and Internet of Things being introduced in many industries. As such, network migration to…
