Common Types of Fiber Optic Splitter

Fiber optic splitter, also known as fiber optic coupler, is a special fiber optic device with one or more input fibers for distributing optical signals into two or more output fibers. Containing no electronics nor requiring power, fiber optic splitter is an integral component and is widely used in most fiber optic networks, especially in ...

Migration from 10G Ethernet to 40/100G Ethernet

With the growth of bandwidth-intensive applications such as high-performance computing and business continuity, there emerge higher-speed networks of 40/100G Ethernet. And as products become less expensive and more available over time, 40/100G Ethernet will inevitably be commonplace in our daily life. Thus, there is a need to create a migration path by installing a structured ...

QSFP+ Cable Types

A quad small form-factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) cable is a fiber optic cable capped at either end with the QSFP+ transceiver, which is designed for data rates up to 40Gb/s supporting Fibre Channel, Ethernet, Infiniband standards and so on. It is a solution with high density, high bandwidth and relatively low cost. In the market, ...

Different Technologies Used in DWDM Multiplexer

Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) is an advancing fiber-optic transmission technology which combines multiple optical channels at different light wavelengths and then transmits them over the same optical fiber. Theoretically, the DWDM technology can multiplex hundreds and even thousands of separate wavelengths into a single optical fiber. To achieve this goal, the DWDM multiplexer is one of ...

What Is CWDM SFP Transceiver

Being a kind of compact optical transceiver, the CWDM SFP Transceiver is widely used in optical communications for both telecommunication and data communication. Basing on the SFP form factor which is a MSA standard build, it is designed for operations in Metro Access Rings and Point-to-Point networks using Synchronous Optical Network (SONET), SDH (Synchronous Digital ...

A Brief Introduction to CWDM Mux/Demux

A Brief Introduction to CWDM Mux/Demux
CWDM Mux/Demux is the short name for Coarse Wavelength Divison Multiplexer/Demultiplexer Module, which is a flexible, low-cost solution enabling the expansion of existing fiber capacity. It is based on dielectric thin-film technology designed for integration in low cost Metro and Access networks. Combining with highly reliable passive optics certified for environmentally hardened applications, the CWDM ...

Differences between CWDM and DWDM

Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) and Dense WaveLength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) are two kinds of wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) which is a technology multiplexing a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using different wave lengths of laser light. Seeing from their development, DWDM came well before CWDM. DWDM appeared only after ...

How to Select A Right SFP Transceiver

The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver is also called mini Gigabit Interface Converter (MINI-GBIC) module due to its smaller size and is the second generation product after the standardized pluggable optical module GBIC. It is a compact, “hot-pluggable” optical transceiver used in optical communications for both telecommunication and data communications application. Nowadays SFP transceivers are ...
