Home Sponsored Announcements Your Guide To Drastically Increasing Network Capacity Whilst Slashing Fibre Connectivity Costs.

The increasing need for more bandwidth per port has means we have gone from 1G to 10G being normal, with 40G and 100G connections becoming essential to deal with rising data rates. Port capacity will continue to be tested with 200G and 400G fibre connectivity products set to hit the market in the coming years.

When expanding a fibre network, the costs of the hardware (switches, storage devices) is often outweighed by the connectivity products (optical transceivers, direct attach cables). So, is there a way of reducing the cost of network expansion without any downside?

Option A) Buy from original vendors

Normally you purchase fibre connectivity products from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). These offer excellent quality though the main drawback for purchasing from OEMs is the cost. Most OEMs sell at an mark-up which is prohibitive especially when costing a large capacity expansion over hundreds of ports.

Also, OEMs simply source and re-badge their products from China. They lock their products with code to maintain market share and their inflated profit margins.

OEMs will try and protect their market share by spreading FUD (fear, uncertainty & doubt) about using alternative products to their own. OEMs are known to spread lies about using alternative fibre connectivity products, saying they will void warranties and service agreements, which is totally untrue. The only way a transceiver will ever void a warranty is if it was responsible for damaging the hardware . If you plug a transceiver into a switch and it is not compatible the only thing that happens is the link will not work which in no way harms the hardware.

Option B) Buy from China

Buying from China is cheap, but the quality of the products is a lottery. Having visited many transceiver manufacturers factories in China, the difference in quality is huge. There are some facilities that are perfectly clean and dust free using OEM quality components. They have good manufacturing and testing processes, and use sophisticated testing equipment. And there are many companies who are the exact opposite. There are also companies posing as transceiver manufacturers who make nothing, but simply purchase products from the cheapest source availableoften using recycled components including lasers.

When buying direct from China, after sales service is sketchy. With reported high failure rates, if youhave an issue it is hard to communicate with the seller who will not offer forward replacement. You will need to return the failed product to China to get tested which is a long and arduous process to get the product replaced.
