Parallel optics is a term representing both a type of optical communication and the devices on either end of the link that transmit and receive information. Compared with traditional optical communication, parallel optical communication employs a different cabling structure for signal transmitting aiming at high-data transmission for short reach multimode fibers that are less than 300 meters. Traditional fiber optic transceivers cannot satisfy the increasing demand for high speed transmission, like 40GbE, while parallel optics technology can be a cost effective solution for 40/100GbE transmission.

With an increasing demand for more bandwidths, faster data rates and higher performance in telecommunication networks, the business case for 40 Gigabit Ethernet is becoming inescapably compelling. However, many users may feel confused when using 40G cables and optical transceivers. This article will solve the most frequently asked questions on Fiberstore’s 40G cabling and transceivers.

Q1: What 40G cables and transceivers are available from Fiberstore? 

Fiberstore supplies a full range of both copper cables and optical transceivers for 40GbE, compliant to the IEEE standards. For copper both QSFP+ to QSFP+ (40G to 40G) and QSFP+ to SFP+ (40G to 4x10G) cables enable short reach options. For longer distances, Fiberstore offers a wide...
