Thinking of upgrading to 10 gigabit Ethernet? Here are the laser-optimized 50/125 OM3 10G fiber optic patch cables you need. Since 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GBE) was ratified in June 2002, the move is on to upgrade Ethernet networks. 10 GBE is a logical extension of previous Ethernet versions and was designed to make the transition from LANs to Wide Area Networks (WANs) and Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). 10 GBE fiber optic patch cords offers a cost-effective migration for high-performance and long haul transmissions up to 40 kilometers .its most common application now is as a backbone for high speed LANs, sever farms and campuses. It also enables you to connect geographically separated LANs to new MAN and WANs via dark fiber, dark wavelengths, or SONET/SDH networks.
10 GBE fiber optic patch cable supports existing Ethernet technologies.These fiber optic patch cords uses the same layers (MAC,PHY, and PMD), and the same frame sizes and formats. But the IEEE 802.3ae specifications defines two sets of physical interfaces: LAN (LAN PHY) and WAN (WAN PHY).
The most notable different between 10 GBE and previous Ethernet is that 10 GBE operates in full duplex only and specifies fiber optic media. The chart shown at right notes the differences between Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Migrate to 10 GBE with this 10g fiber optic cable.
