Some Tips on Deploying SFP+ Direct Attach Cables

The IEEE Standard 802.3ae-2002 was ratified twelve years ago, since then, large enterprises started confidently deploying 10GbE in their corporate backbones, data centers, and server farms to support high-bandwidth, mission critical applications. SFP+ 10Gbqs assemblies representing the mainstream of 10G optical solutions, are available in both copper and fiber formats. Copper ...


Stay For 40Gbps Network or Scale Up to 100G?

The evolution of bandwidth for data transmission is unstoppable. From the 10Mbps, 100Mbps Ethernet to the 10G or 40/100G Ethernet, telecom manufacturers keep promoting higher internet speed to facilitate people’s daily life. Now, bandwidth speeds of 1Gbps to 10Gbps Ethernet capacity are commonly utilized around the world. However, with the increase in data center and cloud...


How to Choose Fiber Enclosure for Your Data Center

The data center is the heart of a fiber optic network. To ensure its long-term reliable network performance, all the optical equipment within data center should be well organized. However, the current multi-fiber counts and high-density optical cabling put strain in the cable management. Fiber patch enclosure provides solid fiber-optic-link protection and space-saving cable ...



NETGEAR AGM732F for Gigabit Ethernet Applications

Fiber optic transceivers are one of the most useful devices in fiber optic network. These little devices allow your networking equipment to accept a wide variety of connections, without having to invest in new hardware. However, these devices (e.g. SFP/SFP+ transceivers) are also one of the most priced devices as the name-brand transceivers are usually marked up by hundreds of ...


Whether to Go for Aerial or Underground Deployment

In the fiber optic network, a carefully constructed network requires calculated planning and a high level of installation. It is not as easy a cavemen can do it, as many factors should be taken into account when installing a fiber optic network, such as construction costs, time constraints, existing infrastructure, and so on. There are two main types of land based network fiber ...


Color Code Standard of Ethernet Cable – T-568B and T-568A

Ethernet cables are the standard cables used for almost all purposes that are often called patch cables or fiber jumper. In an article “How to Choose Ethernet Cable”, we know that Ethernet cables can be categorized into many types, like straight-through and crossover Ethernet cable, UTP or STP, Cat5 or Cat6, etc. But we know little about the pins and wiring in Ethernet...
