A Revolution in Optical Aggregation Networks Is Coming

Today’s announcement from Infinera, on the industry’s first multipoint coherent transceiver technology, could very well be the next major network inflection point. XR optics technology, leveraging an innovative approach on the use of Nyquist subcarriers, enables a single transceiver to generate multiple, individually routable optical signals. The result is a single high-speed transceiver that can simultaneously communicate with numerous lower-speed transceivers, each with independent, dedicated data streams.

What hampered the deployment of 40G / 100G transceiver in data center? –

This article explores some practical problems and difficulties in the application of high-speed transceiver in the data center. For example, the 40G / 100G high-speed transceiver has not developed a revolutionary new photoelectric conversion technology, but by upgrading the manufacturing process, the original 10G transceiver technology to expand. In essence, for the 10G transceiver, by increasing the number of transceiver fiber to enhance the bandwidth. 

Recent transceiver standards solve data centre upgrade issues

While once cost prohibitive, 100G network upgrades are now a viable option to improve network performance. The emergence of the QSFP form factor has brought economies of scale to 100G upgrades, putting 100G within the cost reach of both small and hyper-scale data center operators. With a small profile and reduced power consumption, the QSFP form factor is the choice of switch manufacturers for 100G platforms.

Smart transceiver now supports both LonWorks and BACnet protocols

Adesto’s FT 6050 Smart Transceiver system-on-chip (SoC) now natively supports LON®, LON/IP, BACnet/IP, and BACnet MS/TP protocol stacks. This capability will help modernize and simplify automation and control networks, especially in smart buildings. Its open systems approach allows BACnet workstations and LON network manager and integrator tools to natively field-configure, provision, and monitor controllers as either LON or BACnet devices, or both.
