GLC-SX-MM and GLC-LH-SM

Fiber optic transceivers like SFP can interface with two types of cables, single mode transceiver and multimode transceiver. Single mode like GLC-LH-SM is an optical fiber that will allow only one mode to propagate. The fiber has a very small … Continue reading

Optical fiber and its basic system

Optical fiber is a very thin strand of glass or plastic capable of transmitting light from one point to another. Optical fiber can also be called an optical waveguide, since it is a device that guides light. Unlike the copper … Continue reading

Single mode fiber and transceiver

Single mode fiber optic cable has a small diametral core that allows only one mode of light to propagate. Because of this, the number of light reflections created as the light passes through the core decreases, lowering attenuation and creating … Continue reading

LED and laser are the SFP transceiver outputs

LEDs have much lower power outputs than lasers and their sizes is larger, diverging light output pattern makes them harder to join into fibers, so this limit it in the multi mode SFP transceiver or GBIC, the most popular one … Continue reading
