Transceiver GBIC

A GBIC Transceiver is a combination of transmitter and receiver for the transfer of optical signals. The GBIC Transceiver uses an electronic to optical converter to translate the signals within the GBIC Transceiver. For the transmission, the GBIC Transceiver uses LEDs or lasers. The reception of the GBIC Transceiver signals takes place via a PIN or an APD detector. GBIC Transceivers can be used in various hardware systems, e.g. in switches, servers, HBA's, etc. GBIC Transceivers usually have an LC duplex connector. Furthermore, GBIC Transceivers are hot pluggable and thus can be used or removed during operation.

BlueOptics GBIC Transceivers also offer Digital Diagnostic Monitoring, which allows you to monitor various values of the GBIC Transceiver, such as the temperature, while being in live mode.
