Time for optimizing your DWDM network with FMT

Time for optimizing your DWDM network with FMT

DWDM technology has been widely applied during these years and will continue to provide the bandwidth for large amounts of data. In fact, the capacity of systems will grow as technologies advance that allow closer spacing, and therefore higher numbers, of wavelengths. But DWDM is also moving beyond transport to become the basis of all-optical networking. How to deploy DWDM network with the lowest cost has always been a hot topic. At FS, we remain committed to being customer-oriented, and…

25G SFP28: What Makes It Different?

25G SFP28: What Makes It Different?

Driven by the increasing demand for bandwidth requirement, the 25G Gigabit Ethernet or 25GBASE-T standard has been released in recent years. Then 25G SFP28 assemblies like SFP28 transceiver and SFP28 DAC & AOC, come into being. Though the SFP28 assemblies have been used in a wide variety of high-density and low-power 25 Gigabit Ethernet connectivities, they are still different in optical communications. Why? The following part will uncover it. Benefits of 25G SFP28 Connections To meet the growth for bandwidth…

Difference Between Passive and Active Twinax Cable Assembly

Difference Between Passive and Active Twinax Cable Assembly

Optical fiber cabling had gone through rapid development over recent years and maintained its leading role in telecom field. While twinax cable still remained a good way to access the networking industry trends over the last three decades and presented the highest longevity among all media. Twinax cable (see in following Figure) is a type of cable similar to coaxial cable that has two inner conductors instead of one. And owing to its cost efficiency, it is commonly used in…
