Toronto, Canada – GAO Fiber Optics, a leading supplier of transceivers, recommends its SFP-GE-L Cisco compatible transceivers which provide considerable savings over name-brand products. The hot-swappable 1000Base-LX SFPs are designed to support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and other communications standards. Each member of the transceiver family is compliant with IEEE802.3z 1000BASE-LX standard
These short wavelength modules are supplied by GAO Fiber optics, in addition to optical transceivers at other wavelengths, for use in Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) applications. The wide range of SFP-based systems of GAO Fiber Optics covers powerful features for physical network connectivity, including media converters, distance extenders, cross-connect, Ethernet switching and routing equipment, and wave division multiplexing solutions.
Pluggable interfaces comprise a series of technological enhancements to traditional optical or copper interfaces. They are very small hot-swappable modules that can be easily removed from the host device. This simple and powerful concept allows a dramatic increase in flexibility: If the host device supports protocol transparency then one can build a tremendous variety of applications with a very small number of host system types.
