How Companies are Improving Transceiver Technology
Many technology companies are taking it upon themselves to develop updated optical transceiver technology to be used in data centres. These devices convert electrical signals into an optical signal, allowing for the signals to be safely and efficiently transported between servers across fiber-optic cables.
Some companies are using transceivers that allow for data to be transmitted at 40Gbps, and there are others offering up to 100Gps. Some startups are investing over $30 million to achieve such high speeds as they recognise the returns on their investment will be much higher than the initial investment itself.
As the cloud technology industry continues to grow, technology experts should expect optical transceiver technology to improve and grow to meet the new speed requirements of cloud storage and the server technology they are built upon. The trend bodes well for transceiver manufacturers, especially those who are looking to improve the speeds and operability of their current transceivers.
Large companies are looking to improve upon their transceiver technology by reducing the costs and footprint, and by improving speeds. Most next-generation manufacturers are aiming to hit speeds of 25Gbps and higher. It is their hope that these improvements will allow them to double their transmission rates.
When a transceiver is able to allow for communication between high-bandwidth, high-speed CPUs in a server, the company running them can do some impressive things. This is why there’s so much promise in supercomputers; transceiver technology continues to evolve to meet the latest demands of servers.
Virtualisation technology allows for single CPUs to run several processes simultaneously. The improvements to optical transceiver technology mean that transceivers are now able to support all the data being passed between CPUs and peripheral technology. Optical transceivers have always offered great performance.
They can reach transmission rates of 100Gps. It is becoming more difficult to achieve rates higher than this through electrical communications, but it does get easier when optical transceiver technology supports higher rates of data transmission.
As technology continues to advance, several problems of the past are being remedied. Companies are now able to transmit data at faster rates than ever before. Most companies are looking to vastly improve their technology in the coming years to make smarter decisions with smaller investments.
The Performance of Optical Transceivers and Server Technology is Connected
The name of the game is improving bandwidth. It’s generally possible to reach 10Gbps with proper server, storage, and workgroup switch application technology. Even so, it’s up to individual designers to come up with solutions for optimising the systems they are currently designing or planning to implement.
XFP is able to boost port density, which will reduce the costs associated with optical transceivers. That is why designers should be planning to upgrade their transceiver and server technology.
With the proper plans in place, business owners can expect to see a decrease in processing time while also conserving space. Be sure to keep up to date on transceiver technology advancements to decide how these advancements can help you to achieve your short-and-long-term goals.
