Features and Advantages of Fiber Optical Transceivers

July 02 , 2021
Fiber optic transceivers usually have the following basic characteristics:
1. Provide ultra-low latency data transmission.
2. It is completely transparent to the network protocol.
3. A dedicated ASIC chip is used to realize data line-speed transmission. Programmable ASIC concentrates multiple functions on one chip, and has the advantages of simple design, high reliability, and low power consumption, which can enable equipment to obtain higher performance and lower cost.
4. Rack-type equipment can provide hot-swappable functions for easy maintenance and uninterrupted upgrades.
5. The network management equipment can provide functions such as network diagnosis, upgrade, status report, abnormal situation report and control, and can provide a complete operation log and alarm log.
6. Most equipment adopts 1+1 power supply design, supports ultra-wide power supply voltage, and realizes power supply protection and automatic switching.
7. Support an ultra-wide operating temperature range.
8. Supports complete transmission distance (0~120km).

Fiber optic transceivers advantage
When it comes to fiber optic transceivers, people often inevitably compare fiber optic transceivers with switches with optical ports. The following mainly talks about the advantages of fiber optic transceivers over optical port switches.

1. The price of fiber optic transceivers plus ordinary switches is far cheaper than optical switches, especially some optical switches will lose one or even several electrical ports after adding optical modules, which can make operators to a large extent Reduce upfront investment.

2. Since most of the optical modules of the switch do not have a unified standard, once the optical module is damaged, it needs to be replaced with the same module from the original manufacturer, which will bring a lot of trouble to the later maintenance. However, there is no problem with the interconnection and intercommunication between equipment of different manufacturers of fiber optic transceivers, so once it is damaged, it can be replaced with other manufacturers' products, which is very easy to maintain.

3. Fiber optic transceivers are more complete in terms of transmission distance than optical port switches. Of course, the optical switch also has advantages in many aspects, such as unified management, unified power supply, etc.
