Supporting Large Capacity, High-Speed Optical Communication with Transceiver Modules
Optical transceiver (transmitter and receiver) modules are typically deployed to update the communication and data center networks for efficient traffic management at higher speeds by transmitting data through fiber optic cables, using high performance laser optics and photodiodes, rather than copper wire. They convert electrical signals into optical signals for transmission purposes, then reconvert the optical signal back into electrical signals at the receiving end. A significant advantage to transceivers is the ability for a transmitter and receiver to exist at the same point on a fiber optic line – without a transceiver, optical fibers are unidirectional – thereby reducing OPEX costs.
These devices are critical for any business wanting to take full advantage of the high transmission speeds and inherent stability of optical transport. Used in high-speed optical communication systems that require high-performance, a compact form factor and low power consumption, these modules can typically transfer data at speed reaching more than 100 Gbps. As such, they will be a foundational part of emerging 5G, Smart City, and IoT initiatives.
