Is transceiver cable used in Ethernet?
Knowledge Base + 2023.12.08

Yes, transceiver cables are used in Ethernet connections to connect network devices such as computers, routers, and switches to the network. These cables are used to transmit data between devices and are an essential component of Ethernet networks.

What Is Fibre Channel Transceiver?

As a high-speed data transfer protocol, Fibre Channel (FC) can provide in-order, lossless delivery of raw block data. It is primarily used for transmitting data among data centers, computer servers, switches and storage.

Fibre Channel transceivers, accord with Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP), function as the interface between Fibre Channel systems, as well as the interface between optical storage network devices. They are mainly used for Fibre Channel storage network links in data centers. Featuring with miniaturization and low power consumption, FC modules can satisfy the need for faster transfers of larger volumes of information in a lossless way. The Fibre Channel transceivers are basically running at the Fibre Channel speed range from 1Gbps to 128Gbps, with 256Gbps and 512Gbps in the road map. Their common form factors are SFP, SFP+, SFP28, SFP56, and QSFP28.

What Is Ethernet Transceiver?

Ethernet, also standardized as IEEE 802.3, refers to a computer networking technology widely used in local area networks (LANs) with good backward compatibility, higher bandwidth, and longer link distances, which is increasingly replacing the previous wired LAN technologies like Token Ring, FDDI, and ARCNET.

Ethernet transceivers are fiber optics that follow the Ethernet protocols to link hardware devices within a network by transmitting and receiving messages mainly for LAN situations. The frequently-used form factors are 1G SFP, 10G SFP+, 25G SFP28, 40G QSFP+, 50G QSFP28, 100G QSFP28, 400G QSFP-DD, and the corresponding transmission speed of Ethernet transceivers are ranging from 1G to 400G. The aforementioned models not only include some regular types of optical transceivers but also cover a wide range of WDM transceivers and BiDi transceivers.
