When Should Use GBIC or SFP ?

In computer industry, technology undergoes rapid progress for data transmission at high speed. Defined by the IEEE 802.3-2008 standard, gigabit Ethernet just achieved this performance by using various fiber optical products, including GBIC and SFP transceiver modules. GBIC vs. SFP: this post will discuss when we use these two kinds of transceivers. GBIC Transceivers A […]

Optical Transceiver Design For TDM PONs

The optical transceiver (transmitter and receiver) used for optical-to-electrical conversion is a key component in optical communication systems. In a PON system, an optical transmitter and receiver at the optical line terminal (OLT) or optical network units (ONUs) are typically packaged together to form a bidirectional optical subassembly (BOSA). The figure below shows the architecture […]

Optical Transceiver Module Tutorial From FiberStore

What is an Optical Transceiver module? Optical Transceiver is a computer chip that uses fiber optic technology to communicate between other devices. This is opposed to a chip that transfers information electrically through metal wires and circuits or by the process of using various wave forms to communicate data. An optical transceiver chip is an […]

Optical Fiber Transmission Applications Are Promising In Security Monitoring

As a variety of image status and data monitoring have more and more requirements, the transmission distance of video signal can not meet the demand anymore. Therefore, the gradual development of optical integrated video and control signals (WDM or DWDM technology) can transmit longer distance. In addition to the combination of images and control, the […]

A PON Based on Code-division Multiplexing Access

Because of the Internet and broadband networks were introduced, the emerging applications – such as teleconferencing, video on demand, and high quality audio transmission has strict high flux optical access network quality of service (QoS) capabilities. However, the infrastructure of current access networks suffers from limited bandwidth, high network-management costs, poor flexibility, and low security, […]
