Comparison Between Four Pairs of Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables are one of the fastest growing transmission mediums for both new cabling installations and upgrades. They are ideal for high-data-rate systems such as Gigabit Ethernet, multimedia, Fiber Channel, or any other network that requires the transfer of large, bandwidth-consuming data files, particularly over long distances. Generally we can divide fiber optic cables ...



Guide to 40G QSFP+ Transceiver Module Installation

The 40G QSFP+ transceiver module is a hot-swappable, parallel fiber optical module with four independent optical transmit and receive channels. These channels can terminate in another 40G QSFP+ transceiver, or the channels can be broken out to four separate 10G SFP+ transceivers. The QSFP+ transceiver module connects the electrical circuitry of the system with either a copper or...


Four Common Types of Fiber Optic Connectors

When installing a brand new fiber optic network, you have to join two fibers together with low signal attenuation. Typically, there are two ways to link optical fibers: fiber optic splice and the use of fiber optic connectors. Fiber optic splice is an important method of joining two fiber optic cables together. While by using fiber optic connectors, you can connect two fibers more...


40G QSFP+ Direct Attach Copper Cabling Solutions

With the wide growth of network capacity and transmission speed in data centers, 40G QSFP+ direct attach copper cables are becoming more and more popular. Being compact, lightweight with low power, 40G QSFP+ direct attach copper cables are suited for 40G Ethernet, and other datacom and high-performance computing applications. Generally 40G QSFP+ direct attach copper cables can ...



Three Common Methods for Fiber Optic Cable Termination

Fiber optic cable termination is the addition of connectors to each optical fiber in a cable. There is a common misunderstanding that fiber optic cable termination is time-consuming and highly specialized. With the development of termination technology, fiber termination systems now require less training and produce high quality fiber connections in less time than it takes to ...


How to Tell Different Types of Connectors?

Fiber optic connectors terminate the ends of fiber optic cable jumpers, either single mode or multimode fiber jumpers, and enable quicker connection and disconnection than splicing. They adopt the mechanical optical means for cross connecting fibers and linking to fiber optic transmission equipment. Fiber optic connectors are the most widely used optical passive components in...


Five Common Types of Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables refer to cables containing one or more optical fibers that are used to carry light. They are widely used in the Internet, telephone systems, cable TV, etc. There are various fiber optic cables based on different classification standards, such as single mode and multimode optical fiber cable according to fiber core size. And they can be terminated at both ends ...


Three High-Speed Copper Solutions

With the development of fiber optic technology, the copper wire technology shows some shortcomings, such as low bandwidth, short transmission distance, and poor durability and security, etc. While the combination of transceiver module and copper cabling can not only push the limits of copper, but also make it a good solution for short range applications. Typically there are three ...
