Comparison of Fiber - optic Transceiver and Fiber Switch Function
2017-10-07
Fiber optic transceivers and fiber switches as the most commonly used fiber optic transmission equipment, the basic function is very similar, today Xiaobian for everyone to analyze the existence of these two kinds of products differences.
Comparison of Fiber - optic Transceiver and Fiber Switch Function
Fiber switch and fiber optic transceivers are different:
1, fiber switch is a high-speed network transmission relay equipment, it is more common than the use of fiber optic cable as a transmission medium. The advantages of optical fiber transmission is fast, anti-interference ability;
2, fiber optic transceivers, is a short distance twisted pair electrical signals and long distance optical signals interchangeable Ethernet transmission media conversion unit, in many places also known as the photoelectric converter (Fiber Converter) ;
3, fiber switch is the use of high transmission rate of fiber channel and server network, 8 fiber switch or SAN network internal components of the connection, so that the entire storage network has a very wide bandwidth for high-performance data storage provides a guarantee ;
4, fiber optic transceivers provide ultra-low latency data transmission, the network protocol is completely transparent. Using special ASIC chip to achieve data wire-speed forwarding. Programmable ASIC to a number of functions focused on a chip, with a simple design, high reliability, low power consumption, etc., can make the equipment get higher performance and lower cost.

Summary: In optical fiber communication projects, the general fiber switch for the central machine room side, and fiber optic transceivers are generally used for the client.
