Do You Really Need a White Box Switch? - FS.COM. Although white box switches have been emerged for years, many people still tend to consider switches first from branded companies first when buying a fiber optic switch.

Do You Really Need a White Box Switch? - FS.COM

The adoption of white box switch has been limited to niche companies that have large engineering departments. Over the years, the market of fiber optic market has been dominated by select vendors like Cisco, HP, Arista and Juniper. However, white box switch is coming to break the ice. White Box Switch: What’s It? The phrase “white box” has long been used to apply to no-name computers. White Box Switch: What’ Makes It Superior over Traditional Switch Despite the fact that the use of white box switches has been limited for a couple of reasons, such as customer worries for product quality and technical support, white box switches have come a long way from where they were. 1.High flexibility, as their main function is to meet the data demands. 2.These are helpful to provide efficiency and productivity to the business.

FHX Ultra High-Density Fiber Patching Solution. In today’s data centers, space is often at a premium, making density more critical than ever.

FHX Ultra High-Density Fiber Patching Solution

So using a comprehensive solution of high-density fiber enclosures with either adapter panels or fiber cassettes would provide a complete fiber cross connect patching solution for applications where maximum density is required. The topic of this post is about FS ultra high-density FHX fiber enclosure system, which includes ultra adapter panels, ultra MTP/MPO cassettes and ultra fiber enclosures. Basics of FHX Ultra Fiber Enclosure System Generally, high-performance data centers need solutions delivering easier MACs and the flexibility to migrate to higher data speeds as business needs push for ever-greater transaction volumes.

QSFP-40G-UNIV vs QSFP-40G-SWDM4. Nowadays, the demand for high bandwidth increases and footprints for data center expands dramatically, which makes the migration from 10G to 40G much more necessary than ever before.


Under this condition, many enterprises are ongoing or imminent to upgrade their data center network infrastructures. To better cater for our users, two transceivers 40G UNIV and 40G SWDM4 QSFP using SWDM (Short Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology are compared in the following text, which intends to offer a cost effective transceiver solution for 10G to 40G migration applications.

As parallel multimode MPO fiber cabling is much more expensive than Duplex-LC fiber cabling, Duplex-LC fiber patch cords will be used in these two SWDM applications, as a cost saving cabling method. QSFP 40G UNIV Transceiver for SWDM Application How does the Arista QSFP 40G UNIV work for 40G connection? Why Is the Three-Tier Architecture Out of Fashion?

My friend complained to me, “My school said that it had deployed big brand switch units, but why is the network connecting experience still frustrating?”

Why Is the Three-Tier Architecture Out of Fashion?

In my experience, the bandwidth to the end user is not only about the switch, but also significantly dependent on the big infrastructure of the network. The best I currently know is the flatter leaf-spine network architecture. Internet speed is not just about the switch? Then what is it about? In the traditional three-tier network architecture, communication between two end servers has to experience many different switches. Two servers in a three-tier network need to experience five switches when they communicate. That is to say, for instance, when you want to give a book to your friend in the same school but in a different class, you have to firstly ask your monitor to give it to your teacher, then to the head teacher, then to the teacher and then the monitor in the other class, and at last to your friend.

As a magneto-optic device, the purpose of optical isolator is to allow light to be transmitted in only one direction. This helps prevent laser source from unwanted feedback which will damage the laser source or arouse unexpected laser problems, such as mode hop, amplitude modulate, frequency shift and so on. How to Enhance the Optical Signals for a Long DWDM System? As we know, the longer the optical transmission distance is, the weaker the optical signals will be. For a long DWDM system, this phenomenon easily causes transmission error or even failure. Under this case, what can we do for a smooth, long DWDM system? The answer is optical signal enhancement. Only by enhancing the optical signals, can the DWDM transmission distance be extended.

Which LC Duplex Connector Suits Your Network? As data processing technology has advanced rapidly, smaller and more compact cabling components also meet their golden age. Nowadays, there are a number of connectors in the market.

However, do you really know them well? Economical Solutions for 10G to 40G Connection. With the accelerated development of optical network, there exist more and more capacity-hungry applications in 10G networks today. Why Not Use Raman Amplifier to Extend the CWDM Network Reach? In comparison with the long-haul DWDM network that uses the thermo-electric coolers to stabilize the laser emissions essential, the CWDM network is a more economical solution that features wider wavelength spacing, allowing the wavelength fluctuation of uncooled directly modulated laser diodes (DMLs). But on the other hand, the CWDM network exists the limitation for the uncooled DMLs’ output power and the additional loss of CWDM Mux Demux and optical add/drop modules. These make the CWDM loss budget limited to < 30 dB and the CWDM reach within 80 km. Dual-Fiber or Single-Fiber CWDM Mux Demux for Higher Capacity Need.
