How to Choose a Switch on a Tight Budget?

How to Choose a Switch on a Tight Budget?

A network switch connects multiple devices to a local area network (LAN) and allows the devices to communicate over the network. It improves the efficiency and potential throughput of the network by sending data only to the devices designated to receive it. The right switch should meet the current needs and offer possibilities for future growth. In this article, we try to figure out what to consider when selecting the best switch for your system. Considerations When Selecting Network Switch…

A Glimpse Into the Business of White Box Switches

A Glimpse Into the Business of White Box Switches

White boxes are not something new to us. Since they promise a high level of freedom for networking at a low cost, they have been gaining more and more popularity among customers in recent years. As a piece of hardware, a white box switch can be purchased separately from the software. According to the relevant statistic, this decoupling can save up to 52 percent over the traditional vertically-integrated switch, which often comes at a premium price for the software and…

White Box Switch Vs. Bright Box Switch: Who Is the Winner?

White Box Switch Vs. Bright Box Switch: Who Is the Winner?

The networking industry is making an important move toward open switches, in which the hardware and software are separate entities that can be changed independently of each other. As usual, most enterprises use the closed switches in their data center. However, some companies want to customize the hardware and software to their needs. Until recently, the media is also giving attention to do-it-yourself switches. But this new trend may be confusing to newcomers, those who wonder the differences between white box switch and bright box switch….

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…
