As Gigabit Ethernet leverages the organization’s existing investment in Ethernet and Fast Ethernet infrastructures, 1000BASE-T has become an attractive option by providing a simple, cost-effective performance boost while continuing to use the dominant horizontal/floor-cabling medium. It addresses the exploding bandwidth requirements on current networks that are the result of implementation of new applications and the increasing deployment of switching at the edges of the network.

1000BASE-T Key Specifications

1000BASE-T is specified to run over four pairs of Category 5 balanced cabling. The 1000BASE-T standard leverages the existing cable infrastructure as it is specified to operate up to 100 meters on Category 5 cabling. The...

1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet over Category 5 copper cabling is an attractive option for network managers for several reasons. It addresses the exploding bandwidth requirements on current networks that are the result of implementation of new applications and the increasing deployment of switching at the edges of the network. Gigabit Ethernet leverages the organization’s existing investment in Ethernet and Fast Ethernet infrastructures, and it provides a simple, cost-effective performance boost while continuing to use the dominant horizontal/floor-cabling medium.

There are numerous types of transceivers available that can be used in a variety of applications including radio applications and telecommunications applications. Different specifications and designs are employed to meet the changing needs of designers. This article will introduce three primary types of transceivers used in today’s telecommunication systems.

SFP Transceiver

The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) is a compact and hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. The form factor and electrical interface are specified by a multi-source agreement (MSA). It interfaces a network device motherboard (for a switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a fiber optic or...

The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for telecommunication and data communications. The form factor and electrical interface are specified by a multi-source agreement (MSA). It interfaces a network device motherboard (for a switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a fiber optic or copper networking cable. SFP transceivers can support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and other communications standards. SFP transceivers are upgraded from the traditional version with more flexibility but a smaller size.

In order to cut down the costs on the expensive SFP transceiver modules, many users are seeking for a compatible SFP to use. For example, if your network contains HP routers, firewalls, and switches, you might think that only HP SFP branded transceivers will ensure your equipment functions optimally. However, that seemingly reasonable assumption could cost your company thousands of dollars. Compared to the compatible SFP transceiver produced by third-party companies, HP SFP transceiver comes with dramatically inflated price tags while a third-party compatible one is roughly 80 percent less expensive than HP branded SFP transceiver. Although price isn't everything, it's important to know that you're getting your money's worth. That calls...
