Pluggable Optical transceivers are the basic building blocks of Optical Networks. Their function is to transmit and receive an optical signal over optical fiber. The pluggable part of the optics was a big step forward in flexibility for the optical interfacing of network hardware. Not only did it decimate the model ranges of respective vendors, network architects now got access to a broad range of options in terms of distance, fiber type and pricing.
Pluggable Optical transceivers, or optics, are standardized and can be plugged into various types of hardware such as switches, routers and servers from different vendors. The optical signals that are supported by the transceiver can be of different characteristics depending on the type of network, bit rate and operating distance.
The Optical Transceivers come in different form factors, such as:
- Single Fiber (Bidirectional SFP, SFP+ and XFP)
- SFP Dual Fiber Dua(Small Form-factor Pluggable transceiver);
- XFP Dual Fiber (10 Gbit Form-factor Pluggable transceiver);
- SFP+ Dual Fiber (enhanced Small Form-factor Pluggable transceiver);
- CFP Dual Fiber (Compact Form-factor Pluggable transceivers);
- QSFP Optics and Cables (Quad, 4-channel, Small Form-factor Pluggable Transceiver);
- Tunable DWDM (XFP and SFP+ tunable DWDM transceivers).
Netways supports there product through the entire life cycle. For our optical transceivers we offer the following services:
