Ethernet transceiver sales to decline 18% in 2019

LightCounting expects sales of Ethernet optical transceivers will have declined by 18% when it tallies figures for 2019. The decline is the largest the market research firm has recorded and the first year-on-year dip since 2009, when sales slipped 4%. However, LightCounting states in its new “High Speed Ethernet Optics Report” that purchases of Ethernet optical transceivers should rebound through 2024.

Smartoptics offers 32G Fibre Channel DWDM optical transceivers for SANs

Smartoptics’ new line of optical transceivers and open line system for use in 32G Fibre Channel storage area networks complement the company’s existing line of 8G and 16G Fibre Channel products.The 32G Fibre Channel optical transceivers are available in the SFP28 form factor for use in the platforms of a variety of switch vendors. The optical modules can be used with passive filters as well as Smartoptics’ active open line systems to support reaches up to 80 km between data centers.

Understand 10G SFP+ Transceiver From the Perspective of Connecting Cable Types

Different SFP+ transceivers can provide a wide variety of connectivity options. There are several approaches for us to understand 10G SFP+ transceivers family. For example, with the compliance to different 10G Ethernet standard, we can classify transceivers as 10GBase-SR, 10GBase-LR, 10GBase-ER, 10GBase-ZR etc. Or viewing from the port type, we can see the difference between the SFP+ transceiver configured with duplex LC connector or a RJ-45 connector. But there is another approach we can understand and distinguish SFP+ transceivers. And That is waht I am going to talk about: the Connecting Cable Types.
