To the untrained eye, the process of obtaining long-distance transmission transceivers appears complex. If you know the proper tools and the best practices in the industry, it doesn’t have to be.
Designers sometimes underestimate the significance of reviewing specifications and limitations, preventing the transceivers from working optimally. To sidestep this frequent anomaly, here are some fundamental pointers to remember:
Use Multimode Transceivers for Shorter Distance
Distance isn’t absolute. When fiber optic transceivers are intended for building-to-building application, this can be considered longer distance. When compared to other applications, it may be perceived as shorter.
Try Single-Mode Fiber for Long-Distance Transceivers
Single-mode fiber cables have increased the popularity of long distance network. In fact, many customers now use fiber optic transceivers directly through fiber to the home (FTTH) technology.
Since the fiber optic technology is so popular, many designers are taking advantage of benefits of a high-integrity signal capable of long-distance transmissions. Distances of up to 10-km on single-mode fiber cables can be supported by the CISCO SFP-10G-LR module.
Try Dual Fiber Single Network Port
In a dual-fiber single network configuration, it requires a group of fiber optic transceivers to achieve the desired light and electrical signal. When fiber optic transceivers are arranged in a group, they have the ability to exchange light and electrical signals. With the advancement of technology, their ports have been made to adaptive mode, enhancing convenience in projects.
Try Gigabit Fiber Optic Transceivers
If you require a stable network and greater speeds of 1000M duplex, transceivers and interface switches may do the trick. The advantage of the 100M link to a network is its ability to connect directly into a power supply unit.
To optimize the use for your transceivers, you have to know the technology behind it. Consult an expert to craft your strategy and choose the product that best suits your application. Getting one that’s not too much or too little for your application is bound to give you the best results.
