Do you know Fiber Optical Transponders?

What is Fiber Optical Transponder?

As we know, transponder is important in optical fiber communications, it is the element that sends and receives the optical signal from a fiber. A transponder is typically characterized by its data and the maximum distance the signal can travel.

Functions of a Fiber Optical Transponder includes:

  • Electrical and optical signals conversion
  • Serialzation and deserialization
  • Control and monitoring

Applications of Fiber Optical Transponder

Multi-rate, bidirectional fiber transponders convert short-reach 10gb/s and 40 gb/s optical signals to long-reach, single-mode dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical interfaces.

The modules can be used to enable DWDM applications such as fiber relief, wavelength services, and Metro optical DWDM access overtay on existing optical infrastructure.

Supporting dense wavelength multiplexing schemes, fiber optic transponders can expand the useable bandwidth of a single optical fiber to over 300 Gb/s.

Transponders also provide a standard line interface for multiple protocols through replaceable 10G small form-factor pluggable (XFP) client-side optics.

The data rate and typical protocols transported include synchronous optical network/synchronous digital hierarchy (SONET/SDH) (OC-192 SR1), Gigabit Ethernet (10GBaseS and 10GBaseL), 10G Fibre Channel (10 GFC) and SONET G.709 forward error correction (FEC)(10.709 Gb/s).

Fiber optic transponder modules can also support 3R operation (reshape, retime, regenerate) at supported rates.

Often, fiber optic transponders are used to for testing interoperability and compatibility. Typical tests and measurements include litter performance, receiver sensitivity as a function of bit error rate (BER), and transmission performance based on path penalty.Some fiber optic transponders are also used to perform transmitter eye measurements.

Fiberstore Provides Optical Transponders Solution

Let’s image that the architecture that can not support automated reconfigureability. Connectivity is provided via a manual Fibre Optic Patch Panel, a patch panel where equipment within an office is connected via fiber cables to one side (typically in the back), and where short patch cables are used on the other side (typically in the front) to manually interconnect the equipment as desired.  There is a point that Fibre Optic Patch Panel, people usually different ports patch panel , for example, 6, 8, 12, 24 port fiber patch panel and they according to different connectors to choose different patch panel, such as LC patch panel,  LC patch panel,  MTP patch panel…

optical network

The traffic that is being added to or dropped from the optical layer at this node is termed add/drop traffic, the traffic that is transmitting the mode is called through traffic. Regardless of the traffic type, note that all of the traffic entering and exiting the node is processed by a WDM transponder. In the course of converting between a WDM-compatible optical signal and a client optical signal, the transponder processes the signal in the electrical domain. Thus, all traffic enters the node in the optical domain, is converted to the electrical domain, and is returned to the optical domain. This architecture, where all traffic undergoes optical electrical (OEO) conversion, is referred to as the OEO architecture.

Some Structions for Fibre Optic Patch Panel

Fibre Optic Patch Panel allows easy management of patch cables and link the cabling distribution areas. Multimedia patch panel, which allow several different cable connectors that should be considered are LC for fiber and RJ-45 for copper. Although mixing cable types within the same patch panels is not best practice, it is good to have this flexibility for housing ad-hoc cable types. The best practice is to separate the fiber cabling from the copper cabling using separate patch panels.

Copper VS Fiber

Fibre Optic Patch Panel is one of the few components used in both copper and fiber cabling networks. Some professional are adamant that there is no real difference in the performance and construction, while others see a drastic differential between the copper and fiber products. Professional concur, however, that the cost of fiber panels while having improved over the past year is far more than the copper equivalent. Such explains that the cost of actual installation is compatible nut estimates a 30 percents to 40 percents per port premium for fiber panels.

Copper panels are typically constructed with 8-pin modular ports on one side and 110-insulation displacement connector (IDC) blocks on the other side. Wires come into the panel and are “punched down,” or terminated, into the IDC block. On the opposite side of the panel is a patch cord, most often featuring an 8-pin modular connector, that plugs into the port corresponding to the wires terminated on the reverse side. The patch cord lets the signal be “patched” from one location to another.

Colored jacks or bezels in the patch panel allow easy identification of the ports and the applications they are intended for. MTP patch panel also come in modular styles, for example, for an MTP structured system. The trade off for the higher cost of materials is this: some of this cost id recovered from faster installation and thus lower labor cost.

Angled patch panel(shown as the Figure), are ideal for high-density areas, as they do not require additional cable managers to be installed above and below the patch panel. They also allow for higher concentration of cables. When selecting patch panels, considered the following:

fibre optic patch panel

  • Spacing between ports aids insertion and removal of cables.
  • Sturdy connectors: some panels have loose connector and tend to fall out during cable installation and removal.
  • Orientation of ports in the panel: the top row and bottom row cable slips should face outward.
  • One-piece dust covers for ports (recommended for high traffic areas).
  • Density supported (12 port fiber patch panel or 24 port fiber patch panel per 1U panel).
  • Compatibility with your racks.
  • Space for labeling on the front of the panel.
  • Compatibility with industry standard connectors and racks.
  • Added cable support for the intended cable types on the back of the panel. This is critical and overlooked by many manufactures.
