QSFP+ Transceiver Overview
QSFP+ transceivers have become a necessary component for data centers to keep up with the evolution of gigabit ethernet and the growing demand for faster internet speeds. QSFP+ stands for Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus, and it’s a hot-swappable fiber optical module that can provide 40G connectivity between your system and an external network. The QSFP+ module has four independent receive and transmit channels, so it can connect one QSFP+ Transceiver to another 40G QSFP+, or to four separate 10 Gigabit SFP+ transceivers. Installers can use QSFP+ modules such as the 40GBASE-SR4 to bridge the gap between their architecture equipment and take full advantage of blazing fast speeds available today.
40G QSFP+ transceivers are proving to be increasingly popular on the market, and come with either an MPO or LC interface. The former uses MMF for short distance data transmission and is ideal for high-bandwidth applications in short reach, such as inside data centers. The latter is more suited to longer distances since they make use of SMF, which enables data to travel further along one strand of fiber than in the case of MMF. QSFP+ interoperates across multiple vendor platforms, making it a great substitute for costly 10GbE connections when deployment speeds reach up to 40Gbps. Ultimately, QSFP+ makes it possible for companies to significantly increase their data rates without needing to invest heavily in new technology infrastructure.
QSFP+ transceivers come in different ratings, so it is important to know which type is best for your needs in order to give your network the performance it deserves. At our company, we are here to provide a series of cost-effective QSFP+ transceivers that will meet whatever demands your network throws at it. One of our most popular and widely used QSFP+ transceivers is the 40gbase-sr4. The 40gbase-sr4 is an MPO-interfaced parallel fiber optic transmission module with four 10G lanes that allow for simultaneous 40G signal sending and receiving. It’s great for short distances such as 100m or 150m on OM3 and OM4 multimode fibers. Check out our range of QSFP+ options today for reliable, affordable performance.
QSFP+ modules provide the latest high-performance option for connecting your data network and are perfect for high-density, highly cost-effective, and low-power requirements. QSFP+ is the future of high speed networking, as it offers up to 40G connectivity.
