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. The product is generally used in the actual network environment where the Ethernet cable can not be covered and must be used to extend the transmission distance, and is usually located in the broadband layer network access layer applications; such as: monitoring security engineering high-definition video image transmission; Helping to connect the last mile of fiber to the metro network and the outer network also played a huge role.
Fiber optic transceivers are generally used in the actual network environment where Ethernet cables can not be overwritten and must be used to extend the transmission distance, while also helping to connect the fiber's last mile line to the metro network and the outer network The role. With fiber optic transceivers, but also for the need to upgrade the system from copper to fiber, for the lack of funds, manpower or time to provide users with a cheap program. The role of fiber optic transceivers, we want to send the electrical signal into optical signals, and sent out at the same time, can receive the optical signal into electrical signals, input to our receiver.
Referred to fiber optic transceivers, people often can not help but will be fiber optic transceivers and switches with the optical port to compare the following main talk about the advantages of fiber optic transceivers relative to the optical switch.
First of all, fiber optic transceivers plus ordinary switches in the price is much cheaper than the optical switch, in particular, some optical switch in the plug-in module will lose after the loss of a few or even a few electrical, so that operators can make a large extent Reduce pre-investment.
Second, because most of the switch's optical modules are not uniform standards, so the optical module once the damage from the original manufacturers need to replace the same module, so that the late maintenance to bring a lot of trouble. But the fiber optic transceivers between the different manufacturers of equipment in the interconnection has been no problem, so once the damage can also use other manufacturers of products to replace, maintenance is very easy.
Also, fiber optic transceivers are more complete than optical switches at transmission distances. Of course, optical switch in many ways also has advantages, such as unified management, unified power supply, etc., here is no longer discussed.
