The similarity between optical transceivers and optical transceivers is that they need to perform photoelectric conversion. The difference is that the optical transceiver only performs photoelectric conversion, does not change the code, and does not process data. They are mainly used in banking, education and other networks. In addition to processing the photoelectric conversion work, the optical transceiver must also process the data signal. This is mainly used for security monitoring, distance education, video conferencing and other fields that require high timeliness of video transmission. The following is an introduction to the difference between optical transceiver and optical transceiver by Shenzhen PRIMUS IT Limited.
Fiber optic transceivers are used to exchange short-distance twisted-pair electrical signals and long-distance optical signals. In some places it is called a broadcast converter gpon. This product is usually used in the actual network environment where the Ethernet cable cannot cover and the optical fiber must be used to extend the transmission distance, and it is usually located in the access layer application of the broadband metropolitan area network. It is commonly used to help connect the last mile of fiber optic lines to metropolitan area networks and more external networks.
It is used in the actual network environment where the optical fiber must be used to extend the transmission distance, and it also plays a huge role in helping to connect the last mile of the optical fiber to the metropolitan area network and the outer network. Fiber optic transceivers also provide a cheap solution for users who need to upgrade their systems from copper wire to fiber optics, and lack capital, manpower or time. The function of the fiber optic transceiver is to convert the electrical signal we want to send into an optical signal and send it out. At the same time, it can convert the received optical signal into an electrical signal and input it to our receiving end. Fiber optic transceivers are usually positioned in the access layer applications of broadband metropolitan area networks; such as: high-definition video image transmission for monitoring security projects; at the same time, they also play a role in helping to connect the last mile of optical fiber lines to metropolitan area networks and outer networks. Played a huge role.
1. Its function is to extend the transmission distance of data signals and extend the optical fiber communication converter equipment for data transmission. Metal cables transmit data signals attenuation, and can only transmit a few meters to a few kilometers. The fiber attenuation is very small, and it can transmit from tens to hundreds of kilometers. Optical transceiver is used for photoelectric signal converter at both ends of optical fiber. This is the function of optical transceiver.
2. Optical transceivers can transmit various data signals, the ones that are commonly used to transmit are video (monitoring or broadcast TV), data (SDH/PDH, etc.). Due to the improvement of current technology, multi-service optical transceivers have gradually developed and expanded. Various brands of optical transceivers have also appeared on the market. However, the purpose of the optical transceiver is basically the same.
3. There are many optical transceiver types, mainly including transmitting and receiving. Transmitting converts electrical signals into optical signals; receiving converts transmitted optical signals into electrical signals, and transmits them to the next layer of the device. In addition to being a photoelectric converter, the optical transceiver also multiplexes and demultiplexes the data signal.
The above is the introduction of Shenzhen PRIMUS IT Limited on the difference between optical transceiver and optical transceiver. We hope this will help you.
