Basic Information About Fiber Optic Transceiver

Optical fiber transceivers are also called fiber optic transmitter and receiver, which are used to send and receive optical information in a variety of different applications. The role of the optical module is photoelectric conversion. These optical modules are scalable and flexible in their use, and this is why they are preferred by designers. Here ...

CityFibre buys KCOM for UK national network footprint

UK fiber-optic network services provider CityFibre says it has acquired the national fiber-optic network infrastructure and ductwork of KCOM for $90 million ($136 million). A new funding round of $180 million helped pay for the deal, which the company says will position it to compete with BT’s Openreach fiber-optic network services subsidiary. CityFibre says the ...

Done Deal: $600M Google Data Center Coming to Tennessee

Google has bought a defunct semiconductor plant in Clarksville, Tennessee, not far from Nashville, planning to convert it into a data center, state officials announced today.

The 40G QSFP transceiver Comparison

Data center regularly went through great migration from 1G, 10G to 40G, 100G over the past few decade. Since IEEE 802.3ba standard defined the 40G Ethernet on June 17, 2010. The newest widely adopted optical transceivers is the QSFP+ that offers aggregated optical speeds of 40G. There are many variants for QSFP+ small from factor ...

AT&T announces gigabit broadband expansion to 38 markets

AT&T says it plans to expand the markets for its gigabit broadband AT&T GigaPower service to at least parts of 38 new metro markets. The expansion of its fiber to the premises (FTTP) footprint will bring the number of metro markets where it offers the service to 56. The company announced that two of the ...

Decoding Finisar Compatible SFP Modules

Small form factor pluggable, usually known as SFP modules, are hot swappable Gigabit Ethernet optical transceivers. It offers high-speed performance in a compact package and connects a single network device to a wide variety of fiber cable distances and types. The widely used brand SFP transceivers are from Cisco, Finisar, and HP, etc. But third-party ...

40GbE Transceiver Modules and QSFP+ AOC

Nowadays, 10Gbps links for individual streams cannot satisfy subscribers’ requirements for higher-bandwidth data transmission. Increasing networking applications are driving 40GbE to ensure better performance. 40G QSFP+ transceiver has proved itself as an ideal solution for supporting 40 Gigabit Ethernet. There are so many 40G transceivers in the market, of which HP transceivers are the most ...

SFP+ Optical Transceiver Module for 10GbE Reliability

As organizations transition to 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology, network designers must select the best optical devices for supporting this Ethernet. 10G transceiver modules has experienced the development from XENPAK, X2, XFP and finally realized with SFP+. Today’s article discusses the emergence of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and why it is the time to moving to 10GbE. ...

SFP28 and QSFP28 Optical Modules For 25 Gigabit Ethernet

The widely acknowledged Ethernet speed upgrade path was 10G-40G-100G. However, a new development indicates the latest path for server connection will be 10G-25G-100G with potential for future upgrading to 400G. But why 25G? Because moving from 10G to 40G is a big jump and it turns out the incremental cost of 25G silicon over 10G ...
