We implement 100% testing in our HK facility before we ship to clients. Thus, factory functional testing plus in-switch thruput and code testing is done on 100% of our products. The result is guaranteed compatibility and an extremely low (below 0.1%) return rate. Most major telco’s use our products in mission critical networks. Our product quality will always be superior to most other brands available in the channel market.
No, while the specifications of our products and Cisco’s may not be exactly the same, our products are manufactured to withstand years of use in a switch in the toughest environments.
Absolutely not. Just because you are using Geebic components the manufacturer cannot deny you services. In fact, in the US the Magnssen-Moss Act prevents them from using this tactic! Cisco and others are more concerned with the proliferation of misrepresented/fake parts than using 3rd party components that are clearly marketed as such. Take a look at this link from Cisco’s website to see the specifics.
The grading of fiber cable and quality of workmanship at installation are the two most influential factors affecting transmission distance. Poor quality fiber cable and/or workmanship will contribute negatively to the ability of the circuit to achieve the connection distance stated on the transceiver. The use of coupling or attenuation will also negatively affect and thus reduce the effective connection distance.
Therefore, users should always bear in mind that the connection distance provided in product and in a vendor catalog is for reference only, as no vendor can guarantee the actual maximum distance will be achieved in every case due to the above factors. The engineers of Aspen Optics have years of experience in this field, therefore customers simply need to reveal data to us on your current network design and our professional team will be happy to consult you on not only Aspen’s solutions, but will remind customers of some of the above factors.
Merely knowing that multimode fiber cable is going to be used in the connection is not enough, you have to know whether it is a OM1, OM2 or OM3 multimode cable.
OM1 and OM2 has the diameter of 62.5/125um and 50/125um respectively, and were designed to support data transfer rate ranging from 10Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s, these two have been the mainstream in the market and massively installed in so many fiber networks. OM3 is a laser-optimized MMF cable, it is designed to support the high speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10Gbit/s) today with 300m of ideal connection distance. Their main difference is the connection distance, below are the theoretical values.
Bottom line, the transceiver info is for reference only and very dependant on other factors as described above. You need to look at the other factors when you are building out a circuit.
