Advantages and Characteristics of 25G SFP28 Optical Module
December 20,2018 22:00:29

25G SFP28 optical module is a module with a transmission rate of 25Gbps. The appearance of 25G optical module makes up for the defects of high speed optical module such as high price and excessive power consumption, while the speed of 10G optical module cannot meet meet the user's requirements.What are the common 25G SFP28 optical modules on the market? The following ETU-Link will give you a detailed introduction.

The 25G SFP28 optical module is mainly used for the interconnection of data center servers and switches. It is a new Ethernet standard with multiple advantages. It was proposed by IEEE 802.3 working group in July 2014, and was completely revised in June 2016.The biggest advantage of 25G Ethernet technology for data centers is that it can maximize bandwidth and port density, and it can also use 25Gb/s single-channel physical layer technology to achieve 100Gb data transmission, and it can provide the most energy-saving way to meet the growing demand of the next generation of data center network.

 

Advantages of 25G SFP28 Optical Module

Because the optimal input/output (I/O) performance and fiber capacity of the 25G SFP28 optical module is 2.5 times that of 10G Ethernet, and has a higher port density,  it can also save operating costs by reducing the number of ToR switches and cables. Compared with 100G optical modules, also has lower loss. In addition, the 25G SFP28 optical module can use 2 fiber channels to achieve 50G transmission rate. compared with using 4 10G optical fiber channels to achieve 40G optical module, 25G SFP28 optical module is undoubtedly a better choice.

 

The above mainly know the reasons and advantages of 25G SFP28 optical module, so what are the common types of 25G SFP28 optical module?
