Increasing the Potentials of a Business with Transceivers
All communication equipments like cordless phones, radios and cell phones require a certain frequency range to
facilitate the receiving and transmitting of signals. Communication is only possible when these signals are consistent and
of good quality. The transmission and reception process is possible with the help of transceivers. Transceivers are
important devices required for wireless communication through cell phones, and they require adequate frequencies to
ensure that the user does not experience interruptions while communicating. The giant corporations that provide cell
phone services have to be cautious in their choice of transceivers as they have to provide outstanding services to their
customers. These transceivers are widely used in Ethernet networks for enhanced performance deliveries.
Transceivers are of various categories such as GBIC, SPF, SPF+, XFP and XAUL and these are used in the fiber optic
systems. The Cisco transceiver is an extremely popular product. Multiservice networks can be easily modeled and
deployed with the help of Cisco's CWDM GBIC or Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing Gigabit Interface Converter.
The Cisco CWDM GBIC transceiver is used in campuses, data centers and metropolitan area access networks for Gigabit
Ethernet and Fiber Channels and is a commendable and cost-effective option.
The Cisco CWDM GBIC is basically made up of two parts. One part has a set of eight different pluggable transceivers and
the other part consists of a set of passive multiplexer. The transceivers and passive multiplexers are compliant with the
ITU-T G 694 2 standard defined CWDM grid. The CWDM GBIC model has the capacity to transmit up to eight channels of
Gigabit Ethernet or Fiber Channels over single mode fiber strands. It can be fitted into a standard GBIC port without any
issues, and supports the IEEE 802 3z standard. It neither requires any power nor any configuration process. The
multichannel architecture helps to build links for easy availability. The two path link configurations in a ring architecture
provides protection from fiber cuts.
The Cisco SPF (Small Form Factor Pluggable) transceiver provides a good choice of protocols, reaches and speed options
as well as supported transmission media due to the hot pluggable interfaces. This is a hot-swappable input/output
device that can be plugged into an SPF port or into a Cisco router or switch slot. It links the port with the fiber optic
network. The SPF module can support both Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channel. In an environment surrounded by stiff
competition businesses need transceivers that can enforce lean management policies and eliminate those procedures
that lead to wastage. Transceivers that are safe for use and cause no hazards to the environment are vital tools for a
