What’s iSCSI SAN and How It Works

iSCSI, which is short for Internet Small Computer System Interface, is a SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) transport protocol for mapping of block-oriented storage data over TCP/IP networks. It enables universal access to storage devices and storage area networks (SANs) over standard TCP/IP networks. This post will introduce iSCSI SAN and how it works in […]

Muxponder: Take a Fresh Look at 100G

100G technology is evolving dramatically, and it soon becomes a necessity for carriers and enterprises to handle the escalating data traffic and bandwidth consumption. As a fraction of WDM technology, 100G muxponder emerges as a perfect alternative to enable full utilization of existing fiber, maximizing the network capacity and performance for now and future. So […]

Single-Fiber CWDM MUX/DEMUX Analysis

Dual-fiber CWDM MUX/DEMUX is typically used in CWDM network to achieve dual way transmission, which transmits and receives signals with the same wavelength. A duplex fiber links two dual-fiber CWDM MUX/DEMUXs, supporting the same wavelengths installed on each end of the optical network. Two fibers with the same wavelength enable duplex transmission on different directions. […]

Introduction to the Components Used in CWDM System

CWDM system is a passive optical solution for increasing the flexibility and capacity of existing fiber lines in high-speed networks. It increases fiber capacity by placing widely spaced, separate wavelengths (between 1310 nm and 1610 nm) from multiple ports onto a single-mode fiber pair on the network. The CWDM system components are passive and require […]
