Talking about the difference between industrial switch and optical fiber transceiver
The difference between industrial switches and fiber optic transceivers is that fiber optic transceivers are actually point-to-point industrial industrial switches. Fiber optic transceivers are just a kind of photoelectric conversion equipment, which is only used to extend the transmission distance due to the long transmission distance. The industrial switch is an internet connection device for data exchange in the network. The industrial switch does not need to be point-to-point, and the industrial switch can be point-to-multipoint, and the interface will be a little more than the fiber optic transceiver.
The difference between industrial switches and fiber optic transceivers is:
1. The industrial switch is a high-speed network transmission relay device. Compared with ordinary switches, it uses optical fiber cable as the transmission medium. The advantages of optical fiber transmission are fast speed and strong anti-interference ability;
2. The optical fiber transceiver is an internet transmission media conversion unit that exchanges short-distance twisted pair electrical signals and long-distance optical signals. It is also called a photoelectric converter in many places.
3.Industrial switches use fiber channel with high transmission rate to connect with server network, 8-port industrial switch or SAN network internal components, in this way, the entire storage network has a very wide bandwidth, which provides a guarantee for high-performance data storage. .
4. The optical fiber transceiver provides ultra-low latency data transmission, which is completely transparent to the network protocol. A dedicated ASIC chip is used to realize data line-speed forwarding. Programmable ASIC integrates multiple functions on one chip, with simple design and high reliability , Low power consumption and other advantages, can make the equipment get higher performance and lower cost.
If the internet network is too large and the transmission distance has exceeded the distance that the electrical signal can be transmitted, the electrical switch port of the internet switch needs to be photoelectric conversion, so you need to use an internet fiber optic transceiver to extend your transmission distance. The electrical signal is converted into an optical signal for long-distance transmission.
