Today’s enterprise data centers and networking environments are undergoing an infrastructure transformation, requiring higher speeds, greater scalability, and higher levels of performance and reliability to better meet the demands of business. As speed and performance needs increase, optical transceivers have become an integral part of overall system design. However, optical transceiver design margins and parameters vary widely, and can be the difference between an optimized, highly reliable fabric and incompatibility issues that drive up support costs.
The Brocade® 10 Gbps Long Range (LR) Ethernet optical transceiver, part of the Brocade family of Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, is optimized to fully leverage Brocade 10 Gbps Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)/Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) switches, Converged Network Adapter (CNA) products, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and routers. Together, these optical transceivers provide state-of-the-art performance, helping IT organizations achieve new levels of infrastructure consolidation while expanding the capabilities of their applications and services.
Provides high system reliability based on rigorous qualification and certification testing
Leverages unique design parameters to provide the highest performance with industry-leading Brocade solutions, supporting business continuity
Helps eliminate issues related to SFP incompatibility, reducing downtime and support costs
