The life of the XFP transceiver
2017-09-10
As a fiber optic communications project staff, certainly on the fiber jumper and XFP transceiver life is very concerned about the following we tell you about the normal life of these two products in the end how long?

Fiber optic jumpers are the most widely used fiber optic cable line equipment in the modern communications industry. Due to its long connection distance and low insertion loss, good repeatability and no loss of backlift can support multiple devices at the same time. Good performance, no heat, good temperature stability. Fiber jumpers are suitable for cable television networks, telecommunications networks, computer fiber optic networks and optical test equipment.

Due to the need for fiber optic jumpers and normal testing in the maintenance, the fiber optic connectors are often plugged and removed, which leads to the problem of the maximum number of pluggable jackets. The problem should be based on the premise that the fiber optic connector under normal conditions of use, the number of times through the plug, the components without mechanical damage, additional loss does not exceed the limit (usually the limit of 0.2dB). The insertion and tear life of the fiber optic connector is generally determined by the mechanical wear of the component. At present, the fiber optic connector plug life can generally be greater than l000 times, additional loss of not more than 0.2dB. For fiber optic connectors with slotted ceramic coupling sleeves, static fatigue will cause the sleeve to break due to the presence of crack in the ceramic material. According to the information, the uncovered age of such sleeves for 20 years is 10 -4. If the screening stress is 2.6 times higher than the working stress, the rupture will not occur within 20 years.

XFP transceiver as an important optical fiber transmission equipment, its life is mainly related to its optical module, the general life of 5 years or so. XFP transceiver long-term use, 5 years or so the main device optical module because the loss is too large, the laser damage and can not work properly.
