Introduction to μQSFP Transceiver

The μQSFP transceiver is being presented as a potential future interface by the Ethernet Alliance.  This is a very challenging technical concept for a 100GBASE-SR4 transceiver with MPO connector interface having the outer dimensions of the SFP+ form factor. μQSFP transceiver with MPO connector interface With the μQSFP form-factor it becomes possible to keep the […]

Inspect and Clean High Density MPO/MTP Connector

Before you install the MTP/MPO connectors in the data center, it is essential that all the fiber end-faces and the ferrule are really clean. especially when you thinking about lining up 12, 16, 24 or 32 pieces of 9um fibers in one or two rows, it requires tremendous precision. Any dirts in the mix on […]

TARLUZ 100G QSFP28 Transceivers

The QSFP28 (Quad Small Form Pluggable) transceiver form factor was established to enable multi-lane (quad) optical transceivers, such as 100GbE and 128GFC, with a variety of optical connectors (such as 4+4 MPO and duplex LC). TARLUZ 100G QSFP28 optical transceiver including SR4, CWDM4, LR4 series, complied with IEEE 802.3bm and SFF-8636, compatible with network device […]

What is QSFP-DD Modules

Backwards compatibility is the primary appeal of the QSFP-DD form factor. The QSFP form factor is today’s industry workhorse for delivering 40 and 100GbE. The “Q” is for “quad” — a nod to the four-channel electrical interface, with each lane running at 25 Gbps for 100GbE. QSFP-DD adapts the same basic concept as its predecessor, […]

Differences among Multimode (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OM5) and Single Mode (OS1, OS2) Fiber

What are OM and OS type fiber optic cables? In ANSI/TIA-568.3-D, the TIA adopted the nomenclature for fiber found in the international standard ISO/IEC 11801. The multimode fiber is prefixed with “OM” and the singlemode mode “OS”. The new designation in ANSI/TIA-568.3-D should alleviate some of the confusion associated with application support distance issues. Each […]

Blowing Method for Air Blown Fiber

Cable installation by using high-speed air ow combined with additional mechanical pushing force is called as “blowing or jetting”. Cable blowing is the process of installation of optical ber cable into a pre-installed duct. Compressed air is injected into the duct inlet after few hundred meters of cable is pushed into the duct. Compressed air […]

Polaritetens betydelse för MPO/MTP

MPO/MTP är en flexibel, hållbar samt skalbar teknisk lösning med hög densitet, och är samtidigt en av de mest relevanta teknikerna för att migrera system över till 40 & 100G Ethernet. En av stötestenarna som en nätverksdesigner behöver tänka på, är hur man försäkrar sig i att rätt polaritet på sändande/mottagande fibrer uppnås från start […]
