MTP MPO cables are enabling the World of Today by enabling multi-lane densely packed inter and intra connections between Data Storage and Distribution Points. Number of connections utilizing MPO cable structure will increase in the coming years to ensure 5G New Radio Metro Transport Network....

400G QSFP-DD transceivers are defined by IEEE 802.3bs Ethernet standard and is an evolution of 100G QSFP28 transceivers. On 400G QSFP-DD 400G Ethernet is achieved with increased data throughput while maintaining the same bandwidth on per channel basis. This is due to 100G QSFP28 using...

With the rapid advancement of 5G and 400G Ethernet making waves in Data Centres – an important question needs to be answered. This question is – Which 400G Optics Form Factor is the best for linking the past to the future?   When talking about transceivers, form-factor...

When installing network equipment, avoiding errors and faults is the first priority. However, problem situations can occur unexpectedly. For example, after trying to install a brand new SFP transceiver, the router does not recognize it correctly or leads it to malfunctioning or becoming dysfunctional. One...

A modern transceiver, including a 10G SFP transceiver, could not be imaginable without Digital Diagnostic Monitor approach that allows specialists to promtly isolate faults and errors in its operation. DDM monitors SFP module’s temperature, receiver and transmitter power, transmitter bias current and supply voltage as...

Imagine a scenario where you want to implement a network topology using DAC cables. Let’s try to connect for example Dell QLogic 57810S 10GB PCI card with HP FlexFabric 5930 Switch using a 10 metres long DAC cable.   After inserting the DAC cable in both equipment...

Here are some good links to check which module is supported in which Cisco platform: 1.Cisco Gigabit Ethernet GBIC SFP Modules: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/OL_6981.html 2.Cisco 10 Gigabit Modules: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/OL_6974.html 3.Cisco 40 Gigabit Modules: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/OL_24900.html 4.Cisco 100 Gigabit Modules: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/OL_23876.html 5.Cisco SONET SDH SFP Modules: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/OL_6980.html 6.Cisco Fast Ethernet SFP Modules: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/OL632702.html...

The power budget is the difference between the output power of the transmitter and the input power requirements of the receiver.   Let's as example calculate optical transceiver power budget for EDGE model CWDM-10G-SFP-40-27: To calculate power budget we should use following formula:   Min output power - (receiver sensitivity)...

In case if using Cooper SFP modules in 5900E series switch, the port wont rise (go in to UP state), the Administrator must issue following command in order to change attribute which will let switch port to accept SFP Cooper transceiver: ...

If there is a scenario where DAC cable is used in ZTE 5900E and CRC errors are experienced. Administrator should verify that 10G DAC cable is used in one of the uplink XG cards ports (2,3,4), except port No.1. Because port No. 1, can't be used for...
