With the accelerated development of optical network, there exist more and more capacity-hungry applications in 10G networks today. To solve this problem, experts put forward the 10G to 40G connection as an ideal solution. However, due to the high migration cost, we are prevented from making the migration. Do you also meet this issue? In this paper, it will offer several solutions for making 10G to 40G connections with less cost. Hope you can find one that suits your network.
Economical Solutions for 10G to 40G Short Connection
How to make a short link between 10G and 40G switches? You can choose the 40GBASE-SR4 QSFP+ module that supports the 40G network at length up to 150 m. Meanwhile, four 10GBASE-SR SFP+ modules are required. So is the MTP-LC harness cable for connecting QSFP+ and four SFP+ modules. In details, FS.COM offers OM3 MTP-LC harness cable supporting 40G connection up to 100 m and OM4 up to150 m. All these equipment mentioned above are available at FS.COM with good prices. For the details, you can learn from the following table.
If the link distance is longer than 150 m in your network, 40GBASE-CSR4 QSFP+ module may be a better choice. It can transmit the 40G signals longer, up to 400 m. As for the fiber patch cable, you can still chosse OM3 or OM4 MTP-LC harness cable. In general, the OM3 provided by FS.COM enables the connection up to 300 m, while OM4 up to 400 m. When making a short 10G to 40G migration, you can just choose FS.COM as an ideal fiber optical manufacturer. It offers all the equipment your network needs, including 10G and 40G switches, SFP+ and QSFP+ module and MTP-LC patch cable.
Economical Solutions for 10G to 40G Long Connection
Do you need to make a long 10G to 40G migration? FS.COM also offers several cost effective solutions. For example, up to 1km, 10km, 40km or even 80km 10G to 40G connection solutions. Let’s talk about the detail information of these solutions.
Spending Less for up to 40km 10G to 40G Connection
You can use the 40GBASE-PLRL4 QSFP+ and 10GBASE-LR SFP+ modules to support the 10G to 40G migration up to 1 km. The 40GBASE-LRL4 QSFP+ is also a good choice. As for the fiber patch cable, you can choose the 8 fibers single mode MTP-LC harness cable. Once the distance is longer than 1 km, your are suggested to use the 40GBASE-LR4 QSFP+ and 40GBASE-PLR4 QSFP+ modules. These two kinds of fiber transceiver modules enable the connection at lengths up to 10 km. It the link distance is up to 40 km, then you can use the 40GBASE-ER4 QSFP+ module. Here are the related equipment offered by FS.COM.
Spending Less for up to 80km 10G to 40G Connection
Have you ever felt puzzled about whether the 10G to 40G connection can be extended to 80 km? Here you’ll find the answer is yes. How to deploy 80km 10G to 40G connection? You should add the extra equipment, including two DWDM Mux Demux, two WDM transponder OEO (Optical-Electrical-Optical) repeaters and several DWDM SFP+ modules, to your network.
In order to make a smooth 80km 10G to 40G migration, we should add the WDM transponder OEO repeater into the 10G to 40G link. It can not only act as fiber repeater for long distance transmission, but also CWDM/DWDM optical wavelength converter. When the 10G signals pass through the WDM transponder OEO repeater, it will be converted into several DWDM singals. Then you should use the DWDM Mux Demux to multiplex, transmit and demultiplex them. And finally another WDM transponder OEO repeater is required to convert the DWDM singals into 10G signals again. Hence, you can finally achieve the up to 80km 10G to 40G connection. As for the equipment the network requires, you can also order them from FS.COM with good prices.
FS.COM is an ideal fiber optical manufacturer that offers very cost effective solutions for 10G to 40G connection. These solution can support not only the short 10G to 40G migration at lengths up to 400 m, but also the long migration with reach 1km, 10km or even up to 40km. Moreover, if you want to extend the 10G to 40G connection up to 80 km, you can order the extra equipment like DWDM Mux Demux, WDM transponder OEO repeaters and DWDM SFP+ modules from FS.COM with good price. All the equipment mentioned above have been tested to assure 100% compatibility.
