Supported Network Standards

Supported network standards refer to the set of protocols, specifications, and guidelines that a network device or component can use to communicate and interact with other devices in a network.

In the case of HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver, the supported network standards include industry-standard Ethernet and Fibre Channel protocols. Specifically, this optical transceiver is designed to support Ethernet protocols like 25G Ethernet, 10G Ethernet, and 1G Ethernet, and Fibre Channel protocols like 16G Fibre Channel, 10G Fibre Channel, and 8G Fibre Channel.

By supporting these network standards, the HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver can work seamlessly with other devices that also comply with the same standards. This means that it can be used in a wide range of applications, from high-speed data center networks to enterprise storage area networks (SANs). It also ensures that the device can communicate effectively and efficiently with other network components, minimizing data transmission errors and maximizing network performance.

Environmental Considerations

Environmental considerations refer to the factors that need to be taken into account when designing, deploying, and operating network devices and components in various environments. These factors include physical, electrical, and environmental conditions that can affect the performance, reliability, and safety of network equipment.

In the case of the HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver, some environmental considerations that need to be taken into account include:

  • Temperature: The HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver has a temperature range of 0°C to 70°C. It is essential to ensure that the temperature within the environment where the transceiver is deployed does not exceed this range. Extreme temperatures can cause the transceiver to malfunction or even fail.
  • Humidity: High humidity can cause moisture to condense on the surface of the transceiver, leading to electrical shorts, corrosion, and other damage. It is essential to ensure that the humidity levels are within the recommended range of 5% to 95% non-condensing.
  • Power supply: The HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver requires a specific power supply voltage range. It is essential to ensure that the power supply used is within this voltage range to prevent damage to the transceiver or other network components.
  • Mechanical stress: The transceiver should not be subjected to excessive mechanical stress, such as being dropped or exposed to vibrations. This can cause physical damage to the device, leading to malfunction or failure.
  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI): The HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver can be susceptible to electromagnetic interference from other electronic devices or components. It is essential to ensure that the transceiver is shielded from any sources of EMI to prevent signal degradation or loss.

By taking into account these environmental considerations, network administrators can ensure that the HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver operates optimally and remains reliable and safe over time. It also helps to prolong the lifespan of the device and minimize the risk of downtime or network failures.

Conclusion and Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver is a high-performance, reliable, and versatile network component designed for use in various applications, from data center networks to storage area networks. It is designed to support industry-standard Ethernet and Fibre Channel protocols, ensuring compatibility with other network components and devices.

The HPE 25GB SFP28 Short Wave Optical Transceiver is built to withstand harsh environmental conditions and can operate optimally within a temperature range of 0°C to 70°C. It is also designed to minimize power consumption, making it an ideal choice for energy-efficient network deployments.

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.

We guarantee our customers high quality and reliability for all our transceiver networking solutions, irrespective of the type and size of your network.
