Today, enterprise organizations are facing the challenges of highly dynamic computing, storage and networking needs than ever before. They want to build data centers with efficiency, scalability and flexibility for these increasing demands. In this quest for the perfect solution, an approach has been proposed, that is to deploy white box switch with Cumulus Linux […]
Multiplexing and Demultiplexing: What Are They and Their Differences?
Multiplexing and demultiplexing are two common jargon in network transmission field. No matter whether you have any question about your network connection or not, it is better to have a general understanding of them in case of need. This post below will tell you what they are and the difference between multiplexing and demultiplexing. Definition […]
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 […]
How Much Do You Know About PoE?
People’s increasing demand for more data traffic and higher data speed promotes the evolution of communication technology. The size of data center becomes larger and cabling system becomes more complicated. Recently, home network deployment springs up and a new network technology becomes a hot spot topic—PoE (Power over Ethernet). How much do you know about […]
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 in different directions. But […]
