[Cabling knowledge] how to distinguish between optical modules?
2017-09-21
The fiber optic connector consists of a plug of fiber and fiber, and the plug consists of a pin and a peripheral locking structure. According to different locking mechanism, fiber optic connectors can be divided into FC type, SC type, LC type, ST type and KTRJ type.

FC connector with threaded locking mechanism, is invented earlier, the most used one of the fiber optic active connector.
[Cabling knowledge] how to distinguish between optical modules?
SC is a rectangular connector, developed by the NTT, without screw connection, can be directly plug, compared with the FC connector with a small operating space, easy to use. Low-end Ethernet products are very common.

LC is developed by LUCENT Mini type SC connector, with a smaller size, has been widely used in the system, is the future development of fiber optic connector in a direction. Low-end Ethernet products are very common.

ST connectors are developed by AT & T, with bayonet locking mechanism, the main parameters of the indicators and FC and SC connector quite, but the company is not commonly used, usually used in multi-mode device connection, and other manufacturers equipment When docking, use more.

KTRJ pin is plastic, through the needle positioning, with the increase in the number of plug, the mating surface will wear, long-term stability as ceramic pin connector.

First, Cisco manufacturers

1, multi-mode optical module

Model: GLC-SX-MM

Description: SFP, 1000Base-SX gigabit optical module, 850 nm, multi-mode 550 meters

2, single-mode optical module

Model: GLC-LH-SM

Description: SFP, 1000Base-LX Gigabit optical module, 1310 nm, single mode 10KM


Second, Huawei manufacturers

1, multi-mode optical module

Model: eSFP-850nm-1000Base-Sx / FC200 MM

Description: Optical transceiver module (eSFP, 850nm, 2.125Gb / s multi-rate, -9.5dBm ~ -2.5dBm, -17dBm, LC, multimode, 0.5km)

2, single-mode optical module 10km

Model: eSFP-1310nm-1000Base-Lx SM

Description: Optical transceiver module-eSFP-1310nm-1.25Gb / s - 9dBm - 3dBm - 20dBm-LC-single-mode -10km

3, single-mode optical module 40km

Model: eSFP-1310nm-1000Base-Zx

Description: Optical transceiver module-eSFP-1310nm-1.25Gb / s - 5dBm-0dBm - 23dBm-LC-single-mode -40km

Huawei identified SM as single mode, MM is multi-mode.

The difference between single mode and multimode

General manufacturers will be in the color of the ring to distinguish, such as: black pull ring for the multi-mode, the wavelength is 850nm; blue is the wavelength of 1310nm module; yellow is the wavelength of 1550nm module; purple is the wavelength of 1490nm module.
