Cisco will join such competitors as Ciena, Juniper Networks, and Infinera by branching out into the optical transceiver business by acquiring Acacia Communications for $70.00 per share in cash, or approximately $2.6 billion on a fully diluted basis, net of cash and marketable securities. The deal is expected to close in the second half of Cisco’s fiscal 2020.
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.
