Fiber optic transceivers is an integral part of fiber optic networks for data communication and Ethernet applications. In datacom network, fiber optic transceivers and direct attach cables are widely used in data transmission and high speed interconnection. However, the costs for transceiver modules keep adding up over time. As cost is a major consideration of a project, a cost-effective and high-performance solution is urgently needed which can help you solve complex problems – easily and cost effectively.
As the leading manufacturer and supplier of optical transceiver modules, GalaxyBit’s fiber optic transceiver solution provides comprehensive coverage, superior performance and lowest total cost of ownership for the fast-growing number of applications in the big cloud data centers, enterprise, high performance computing, metro and storage markets. As the solution diagram shown above, we offer a comprehensive fiber optic transceiver solution for SAN (Storage Area Network), LAN (Local Area Network) and Metro Network.
In addition, we have complete and perfect solutions for the many major brands’ transceiver encryption. By testing, our compatible transceiver modules are third-party and 100% compatible with major brands, such as Cisco, HP, NETGEAR, Brocade, Juniper, Extreme etc. and backed by a lifetime warranty. Besides the compatible transceivers, we can also customize transceiver modules according to user’s specific requirements.
To further reduce cost and power in interconnect distances of less than 7-10 meters, which is sufficient to link server cards and switches, the SFP+ Direct Attach Copper replaces the optical modules and fiber with a passive copper cable with connectors identical to an SFP+ optical module. The reduction in cost and power are significant since the price of two optical modules required to support a full duplex link is approximately 10 times the cost of a fully connectorized SFP+ Direct Attach cable. In addition, the optical SFP+ modules consume around 1W each, adding 2W per port to the overall system power budget and cooling requirements.
