Use Fiber Optical Switches and Harness Bandwidth

So many times, we face in our office setups or our very own home, the various speed and connectivity issues with the networks.

 

 

Sometimes the network is slow and sometimes even down. That is why when designing and building a network, even a home network, choice of good networking devices is pivotal for that network.

 

 

You can have such devices as routers, switches, repeaters and hubs, or servers after all.

 

 

The need for this is that the devices chosen should be such that scaling up a small network should be no problem, and the speed of the network should not be compromised with and that is where the selection for the right device is so critical.

 

 

Efficient networks are so important in today’s business scenarios that there is an extended effect on the revenues of the businesses due to a bad network which is most of the time down or un-scale-able or coming up with one or another issues.

 

These kinds of scenarios mentioned above can be avoided by using an intelligent device such as Switch or even better – Fiber Optical Switch!

 

 

Switches are pretty efficient in making good use of the available bandwidth, the reason being switches have a separate collision domain on each port. Also switches are plug and play devices i.e. just plug the switch in the current network anywhere and it is ready to operate on the go, even when they are connecting two different types of network, no protocol issues or anything, and we are talking about a regular copper switch.

 

 

 

Fiber optic switches are many times more efficient than their copper counterparts. The fiber optic switches are the basic building blocks for many optical applications such as routing in fiber communications networks, photonic signal processing, distributed optical sensing, and optical controls.

 

 

 

There are many reasons to use fiber optical switch, the most important being – by using a fiber switch the entire available bandwidth can be harnessed. It is the basic property of fiber optic communication to harness the maximum bandwidth so it is the same with fiber switches.

 

 

Also the distance covered by the network increases significantly therefore the information can be send even farther. Also fiber being immune to EMI/RFI the signal or data loss is negligible if used smartly. Also they are immune to tough weather or lighting scenarios. We all know the importance of these points in an environment where data and info sharing is an ongoing process and also in mission critical applications.

 

 

 

So that makes the fiber optical switches more secure than their copper counterparts and an even better option than regular switches. At ADNET, we offer you exactly the kind of fiber optical switches you are looking for and they are more efficient and at most competitive prices.

 

 

 

For e.g., our AN-314-X3X1 switch or AN-317-X3X1 both have varied features along with the general attributes mentioned above as both have support both Single optical fiber and dual optical fiber, its transmission distance ranges from 2km to 120km, works under both Half and full-duplex mode.

 

 

All in all, an ideal option for fiber to home (FTTH or FTTx) optical fiber solution, city optical fiber networks, etc. Gigabits speeds are also possible with these switches. You can plug them right in the middle of your network irrespective of it being a fiber network or copper or anything and they are up and running instantly.

 

 

 

You can have VLANs configured on different ports. These also come along with a plethora of management options which put you in direct control to extract the most out of your network.

 

And theses are not all; there is a vast variety of switches and other fiber devices waiting for you as per your requirements on our website.

Testimonials

Lomoveishiy – Finland

I needed those to connect my PC on the third floor to have internet access in that room, and ISP installed their modem on the first floor only. After dropping fiber patch cables, plugged in all cables into these media converters at both sides, and link came up instantly. Was much easier than I thought!

Raymond – USA

Great experience – units worked straight out of the box – just needed plug in cables and we were done. I also like the possibility to enable jumbo frames, while we do not have a need for this feature at the current moment it’s great to have this option.
