The SFP-OC48-LR2 Cisco Pluggable Long-reach Transceiver Module is a solution for high-speed, multimode optical networking needs. It is a compact, pluggable device that can be easily installed into Cisco switches, routers, and other networking equipment. This module provides a cost-effective and reliable solution for increasing the bandwidth and connectivity of your network.

The SFP-OC48-LR2 supports the OC-48c/STM-16 (2.5Gbps) standard, and has a maximum reach of 40 kilometers over multimode fiber. This makes it ideal for connecting large data centers, service provider networks, and enterprise networks over longer distances. The module supports both Single-mode Fiber (SMF) and Multimode Fiber (MMF) cabling, making it versatile and flexible for various networking applications.

Additionally, the SFP-OC48-LR2 supports digital optical monitoring (DOM), which provides real-time diagnostics and monitoring of the optical signal. This helps to ensure that your network is operating optimally, and quickly identifies any potential issues before they become major problems.

The Importance of Transceiver Quality for Network Performance

The SFP-OC48-LR2 Cisco Pluggable Long-reach Transceiver Module is a critical component in any optical network infrastructure. It helps to transfer data between devices that are far apart and allows the network to function efficiently. The quality of the transceiver module directly affects the performance of the network and therefore, it is crucial to choose a high-quality transceiver that is reliable, efficient and compatible with the network devices.

One of the key factors in determining the quality of a transceiver module is the optical power budget. The optical power budget is the difference between the transmitted power and the received power and determines the maximum distance the signal can travel without degradation. A high-quality transceiver module has a larger optical power budget, which means it can transmit data over longer distances with minimal signal loss. This ensures that the data is transmitted with high quality and reliability, even over long distances.

Another factor that affects the quality of the transceiver is the data transmission rate. A high-quality transceiver module should be able to support high-speed data transmission, which is crucial for large amounts of data transfer. The SFP-OC48-LR2 supports data transmission rates of up to 2.5Gbps, ensuring that the network performance is not compromised.

The quality of the transceiver module also affects the network reliability. A high-quality transceiver module should be able to operate in a wide temperature range and be resistant to environmental conditions such as humidity and dust. The SFP-OC48-LR2 is designed to operate in harsh conditions, making it suitable for use in a wide range of environments.

Finally, the compatibility of the transceiver module is also an important factor in determining its quality. A high-quality transceiver module should be compatible with the network devices and have the necessary certifications and approvals. The SFP-OC48-LR2 is a Cisco certified product and has been tested to ensure that it works seamlessly with other Cisco network devices, improving the overall network performance.

The Future of Optical Networking

The SFP-OC48-LR2 Cisco Pluggable Long-reach Transceiver Module is a critical component in the future of optical networking. This module is designed to deliver high-speed data transmission over long distances, making it ideal for use in large enterprise networks, data centers, and other large-scale optical networking applications.

One of the key benefits of this module is its ability to support optical transmission at speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps, which is significantly faster than traditional copper-based networking solutions. Additionally, it has a maximum reach of 40 km, allowing it to cover large distances without sacrificing performance or speed.

Another important aspect of the SFP-OC48-LR2 module is its interoperability with a wide range of networking equipment. This makes it a versatile and flexible solution for companies that need to connect multiple devices and networks, regardless of the manufacturer or technology used.

Furthermore, the module's compact size and pluggable form factor make it easy to install and manage. This eliminates the need for large, permanent optical components and allows companies to quickly and easily upgrade their networks as needed.

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.
