40/100G BiDi Transceiver – Some Sequels Are Better Than The Original
QSFP BiDi at either 40G or 100G offers easy migration paths for data center upgrades.
40/100G QSFP BiDi Transceiver’s Backward Compatibility With 40G BiDi
Incremental upgrades to data centers made easier with backward compatibility with 40G BiDi.
Looks Like We’re Upgrading Again! Dual-Rate 40G/100G BiDi Transceiver
First dual-rate 40G/100G ports. Now there’s a 40G/100G dual-rate pluggable optic!
Fiber Optics: Not Something To Make Light Of – Part 1
Everything you always wanted to know about fiber optic data communication but were afraid to ask. Part 1: Total Internal Reflection
Too Slow? 25G Speeds Up Data Centers and Campus Backbones
As data demands continues to rise, 25G provides 2.5x bandwidth in the same familiar 10G SFP+ package.
Multi-Rate Ports Mean Multiple Options for Data Center Upgrades
With 40G/100G ports, you don’t have to replace the entire network all at once. Upgrade to 100G at your own pace.
