In 10G networks, engineers are often confused about the choice of optical fiber or copper / optical cable. Today, ETU-Link will analyze three 10G network communication solutions for everyone to reference.

Solution 1: 10G SFP+ module + patch cord + 10G SFP+ module

Solution 2: 10G SFP+ to 10G SFP+ DAC Cable

In the data center, copper cable is usually used in connecting the server and storage area network (SAN). Most is direct attach copper cable, and the passive copper cable is the most using.
For the cheaper price and higher transmission speed of passive copper cable, it becomes the best service solution of realizing the short distance transmission.

Solution 3: 10G SFP+ to 10G SFP+ AOC Cable

Active Optical Cable = two optical transceivers + optical patch cord

Customers may be tangled in which product is suitable for his project, please look at below picture!

Everything has two sides, both advantages and disadvantages. Although the solutions 2 and 3 are relatively cost-effective compared with solutions 1, there are certain risks.
If one side of 10G DAC or 10G AOC was broken, then it will be unworkable. For solutions 1, if some part was broken, replace the broken part can also continue to use.

ETU-Link is a professional provider for high-speed data connection product solutions. Especially 10G SFP+ to SFP+ high-speed cable solutions. It not only reduces the power consumption, but also increases the scalability of the network.
