Detailed Selection Methods of the Fiber Optic Transceiver

As a local network connector device, the main task of the fiber optic transceiver is to better seamlessly connect the data of the two parties. So we must consider its compatibility with the surrounding environment and the stability of its own products. Certain factors must be considered when choosing a fiber optic transceiver. The following are some methods for selecting fiber optic transceivers provided by PRIMUS IT.

Ⅰ. Does the fiber optic transceiver itself support full-duplex and half-duplex?

Some optical transceiver chips on the market can only use full duplex, but cannot support half duplex. If a half-duplex optical fiber transceiver is connected to a switch or hub of another brand, it will definitely cause serious conflicts and packet loss.

Ⅱ. Whether the fiber optic transceiver you selected has been tested for connection with other fiber optic transceivers

There are more and more fiber optic transceiver types on the market. Transceivers of different brands have not been tested for compatibility beforehand, and packet loss, long transmission time, and sudden speed and slowness will occur.

Ⅲ. Does the fiber optic transceiver have a safety device to prevent packet loss?

In order to reduce costs, some fiber optic transceiver manufacturers often adopt the register data transmission mode when manufacturing fiber optic transceivers. The biggest disadvantage of this method is instability and packet loss during transmission, and the best is to use buffer circuit design, which can safely avoid data packet loss.

Ⅳ. The temperature adaptability of the optical fiber transceiver

The optical transceiver itself generates heat when it is used. When the temperature is too high (not greater than 85°C), does the optical transceiver work normally? This is a factor worthy of consideration by customers.

Ⅴ. Whether the fiber optic transceiver complies with the IEEE802.3u standard

1. The optical fiber transceiver must comply with the IEEE802.3 standard, that is, the delay time is controlled at 46bit. If the value exceeds 46bit, it means that the transmission distance of the optical fiber transceiver will be shortened.

2. Optical fiber transceivers are generally used in actual network environments where Ethernet cables cannot be covered and optical fibers must be used to extend the transmission distance, and are usually positioned in the access layer application of broadband metropolitan area networks. At the same time, fiber optic transceivers greatly help connect the last mile of fiber optic lines to metropolitan area networks and more outer networks.
