Management and Monitoring Capabilities

The 817040-B21 HPE Synergy 40GBE/4x10GBE/4x8GB FC QSFP+ Transceiver supports management and monitoring capabilities that allow for easy and efficient management of network resources.

The transceiver can be managed and monitored using various management tools such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which provides detailed information about the transceiver's status, configuration, and performance. Additionally, HPE OneView, a converged infrastructure management platform, can be used to manage the entire HPE Synergy infrastructure, including the 817040-B21 transceiver.

The transceiver also supports diagnostic monitoring interface (DMI) and digital optical monitoring (DOM) features, which allow for the monitoring of critical parameters such as temperature, voltage, and optical power levels. This helps to ensure the reliable operation of the transceiver and enables proactive maintenance.

Furthermore, the transceiver supports link fault signaling (LFS) and remote fault indication (RFI) features, which enable administrators to quickly identify and troubleshoot network issues. The transceiver can also generate SNMP traps and syslog messages, which can be used to alert administrators to potential network problems.

The management and monitoring capabilities of the 817040-B21 HPE Synergy 40GBE/4x10GBE/4x8GB FC QSFP+ Transceiver enable administrators to efficiently manage and monitor network resources, diagnose and troubleshoot issues, and ensure the reliable operation of the network.

Power Consumption and Thermal Characteristics

The 817040-B21 HPE Synergy 40GBE/4x10GBE/4x8GB FC QSFP+ Transceiver has specific power consumption and thermal characteristics that are important to understand when designing and deploying a network.

The power consumption of the transceiver depends on the mode of operation. In 40GbE mode, the transceiver has a maximum power consumption of 3.5W, while in 10GbE mode, it has a maximum power consumption of 2.5W. When used for 8GB FC mode, the transceiver has a maximum power consumption of 2.2W. These power consumption levels are relatively low, which is an advantage in terms of energy efficiency and lower operating costs.

In terms of thermal characteristics, the transceiver generates a certain amount of heat, which must be dissipated in order to maintain proper operation. The transceiver is designed to operate in a wide temperature range, from 0°C to 70°C, and has an operating humidity range of 10% to 85%, non-condensing. In addition, the transceiver is designed to be hot-pluggable, meaning that it can be inserted or removed from a live system without causing damage or disrupting operation.

Understanding the power consumption and thermal characteristics of the 817040-B21 HPE Synergy 40GBE/4x10GBE/4x8GB FC QSFP+ Transceiver is important for ensuring that the transceiver operates correctly and does not cause damage to other components in the network. Additionally, it can help to optimize the design and layout of the network for efficient operation and cooling.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Building a fibre-optic network calls for a lot of planning and consideration of many factors. Transceivers are part of the many devices used to build optical fibre systems. A transceiver serves the combined roles of a transmitter and a receiver in that it transmits and receives signals. They are most common in communication equipment such as cellular phones, cordless telephone sets, and radios. Small form factors are required as networks become dense and space is limited, which sees transceivers included in chipsets.

In local area networks (LAN), a transceiver is used to connect a computer to printers and other devices on the network. Usually, the transceiver is integrated into the Network Interface Card (NIC)

Typical Roles of a Transceiver

  • Used to convert frequencies from IF to RF.
  • Widespread use in wireless communication to transmit data – voice, data, and video.
  • RF transceivers are used in communication devices to support radio and TV signal transmission, digital signals transmission, and satellite communication.
  • Collision detection – detection of simultaneous signals on the network.
  • Transceivers can be deployed to provide a jabber function to interrupt the transmission of long data stream outputs.

Look no further for all types of transceivers including fibre optic transceivers, wireless transceivers, Ethernet transceivers, and RF transceivers. All these transceivers have different characteristics and support full-duplex communication, but the principle behind their work remains the same. Different types of transceivers will have varying numbers of ports used in the transceiver networking connections.

RF Transceivers: these devices are used to transmit video or voice data over a wireless medium. Commonly used for satellite communication, radio transmission, and ITE/WiMax/WLAN networks. The radio transceiver works by silencing the receiver when it is transmitting. There is an electronic switch that facilitates the connection of both the receiver and transmitter on the same antenna. The switch protects the receiver from damage that may be caused by the transmitter output.

Fiber Optic Transceivers: Also referred to as optical modules or fibre optical transceivers. Used to transmit data in fibre optic technology. The network must also have electronic components to encode or decode data into light signals.

Ethernet Transceivers: Basically used to connect electronic devices in a network so that they are able to transmit and receive data. It is also referred to as a media access unit (MAU). The best application of these transceivers is in the specification of IEEE 802.3 and Ethernet. Ethernet transceivers will detect a collision, provide Ethernet interface processing, convert digital data, and provide access to the network.

Wireless Transceivers: Wireless transceivers are a fundamental component necessary for data delivery in wireless networks. These transceivers have two layers. The physical layer has a baseband processor and RF front end. The processor converts a bitstream to a collection symbol flow for data transmission. The second layer is a MAC layer for link traffic control in contacting wireless links, improving data throughput, and preventing collisions.
