Preparation for Qualified FTTH Network Installation. During the equipment installation of FTTH network, contamination is the greatest problem which should be noticed in the optical networks.
Along the link distance, a single particle mated into the core of a fiber can cause optical insertion loss, return loss (ORL), and equipment damage. So visual inspection is required to determine if fiber optic connectors are clean before mating them. This tutorial will tell about inspection and cleaning issues for FTTH network deployment before equipment installation. Fiber Connector Inspection The inner-most zones of connectors are more likely to be contaminated that outer zones. Use the microscope to inspect connector endface.If it’s not clean, use cleaning tools to clean the optics.Make sure there is no contamination on the endface and connect fiber interfaces.
Optical Fiber Interface Inspection Optical fiber interface inspection includes two situations. Cleaning Methods There are dry and damp cleaning methods. Typical Acceptance Values Conclusion. FS.COM Introduced LC Uniboot Fiber Patch Cables. June 20th, Shenzhen, FS.COM News – FS.COM recently introduced LC uniboot fiber patch cables to achieve more effective cable management in high-density network environment.
As today's networking environment becomes increasing dependent on high-speed and high-density solutions, effective cable management is a real issue. And the key concern is how to manage more cables in a smaller amount of space. FS.COM introduced LC uniboot fiber patch cables to meet this requirement. The LC uniboot fiber patch cables reduce cable management space by 68% compared to standard patch cords, and they have a more compact design when compared to traditional duplex zipcord assemblies. These assemblies contain two LC connectors encased in a common housing with one boot, terminated on a single, round, two-fiber cable. FS.COM LC uniboot fiber patch cables are available in 9/125 single-mode types and 10G OM3 and 10G OM4 multimode types with PVC jacket or LSZH jacket. Optics and Cables for Arista 7280E Network Design - Blog of FS.COM. Today’s cloud data applications, such as Big Data, are distributed applications running on server clusters with many-to-many communication patterns.
The performance of distributed Big Data applications depends critically on the packet buffer size of the data center switches in the network fabric. There are two types of switch chips commonly used in data center switches. One uses on-chip shared SRAM (Static Random Access Memory) buffers, while the other uses external DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) buffer. This article will introduce the large buffer switches—Arista 7280E series switches. Connection Guide for Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series Switches - Blog Of FS.COMBlog Of FS.COM.

The rapid growing bandwidth keeps driving the need for 100G transceivers to build data centers, enterprise, long-haul networks.
Just as 1G, 10G optical modules, 100G QSFP28 transceivers also have single-mode and multimode categories to support short and long distance network links. So what kind of 100G QSFP28 transceivers are included? What distance can each 100G QSFP28 support? 100G QSFP28–Supported Distance Below 1km. Does Multimode SFP Work Over Single-mode Fiber Cable? When you prepare to connect some SFPs with fiber patch cords, you may find SFPs are multimode modules while your fiber cables are single-mode.
Try to connect those optics to fiber cable, but no green light and the link fails. So multimode SFPs can’t work over single-mode fiber cables. To avoid the wasting of time and money, you should better know well about single-mode and multimode SFPs and fiber patch cords. Single-mode and Multimode SFP SFP, small form factor pluggable transceiver, can support the data rate up to 1Gbps. QSFP+ Universal Transceiver—QSFP-40G-UNIV Tutorial. There are many challenges faced during data center or network upgrade.
How to simplify network management and decrease the cost without affecting the transmission quality is always the hot topic. A lot of data centers and networks upgrading from 10G to 40G are also facing such challenges. Cost and deployment time are being increased because of the different cabling structures of 10G network and 40G network. In addition, upgrading to 10G to 40G network is also limited in transmission distance over multimode fibers. To solve these to problems, a universal transceiver is being invented by Arista, which is known as QSFP-40G-UNIV or QSFP+ 40G universal transceiver.
Check out All CWDM Transceiver Modules. Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) is one of WDM technologies.
It uses up to 20 different wavelengths for data transmission over a single fiber. CWDM applies coarse wavelength grid and it allows low-cost, uncooled lasers, which makes CWDM systems less expensive and consuming less power. There are many optical equipment applying CWDM technology. This article will introduce CWDM optical transceivers. CWDM Transceivers CWDM transceiver is a kind of optical modules employing CWDM technology. Difference Between Cisco GLC-SX-MM and Cisco GLC-SX-MMD. Cisco 1000BASE SFPs keep a huge market share in the optic area.
Cisco SFPs offer users optical solutions for long distance and short distance transmission. For short distance, there are 1000BASE SX SFP, such as Cisco GLC-SX-MM and Cisco GLC-SX-MMD. Though these two modules have great similarity, they are actually different. Then what’s the difference? Interconnection Solution for Juniper QFX5100 Series Switches - Blog of FS.COM.
The data center is continuously undergoing a fundamental shift to support higher speed interfaces at the access layer.
Typically, the shift is happening from 1GbE interfaces to 10GbE in the access layer. However, to support high-density 10GbE interfaces, the core and aggregation layers need to support even high-speed interfaces such as 40GbE. The juniper QFX5100 was specifically designed to solve the high port density in data centers. In this article, we will briefly introduce the Juniper QFX5100 series and offer some interconnection options for you.
