Optical modules are devices for interconnecting telecommunications devices for optical fiber. They are considered to be generally recognized industrial production formats interchangeable transceivers regulated by common standards and specifications. Most global manufacturers took the format of optical modules and produce relevant products.
Optical modules are classified by the method of transmission and the form factor. According to the data transmission method is isolated modules «MMF-SX» (850nm to 550m), «SMF-LX» (1310nm 10km), «SMF-BX» (1310/1550nm 10km), «XD» (1310nm 80km), «ZX» (1310nm to 120km). By form factor modules are marked - «SFP», «SFP+», «XFP», «XENPAK», «X2». Between themselves, they have different connectors and dimensions. XFP optical transceiver modules are enabled to speed 10Gbit/s and can transmit data from one device to another Remote and use in fiber-optic communication lines.
The advantages of the product «Cisco» refers to optimize network performance, increased availability, reduce operating expenses. Optical Modules produced by "Cisco" are the most effective solution for complete data network in terms of the domestic market.
