Fiber Optic Tech
With the advent of 5G era, the related optical communication technology is also developing rapidly. Compared with other optical transceiver modules, 25G optical transceiver modules are more widely used. The biggest advantage of 25G Ethernet technology for the data center is that it can maximize the bandwidth and port density, and it can also use 25Gb/s single-channel physical layer technology to achieve 100Gb data transfer, which can provide the most energy efficient way to meet the growing needs of the next generation data center network.
The 25G SFP28 optical transceiver module can transmit at 2.5 times the rate of the 10G optical transceiver module, has higher port density, and can also save operating costs by reducing the number of switches and cables. Compared with the 100G optical transceiver module, the 25G SFP28 optical transceiver module also has less loss. In addition, the 25G SFP28 optical transceiver module can use two fiber channels to achieve 50G transmission rate. Compared with the 40G optical transceiver module using four 10G fiber channels, the 25G SFP28 optical transceiver module is undoubtedly a better choice.
The conventional optical transceiver modules of 25G SFP28 include SR, LR and ER, among which SR can be transmitted to 100 meters with multi-mode OM4 fiber, LR and ER optical transceiver modules can be transmitted to 10 kilometers and 40 kilometers respectively through OS2 single-mode fiber.
