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

BlueOptics Optical Transceivers also offer Digital Diagnostic Monitoring, which allows you to monitor various values of the Optical Transceiver, such as the temperature, while being in live mode.
BlueOptics Optical Transceivers are available in the following variations:

  • Duplex Optical Transceiver
  • BIDI Optical Transceiver
  • CWDM Optical Transceiver
  • DWDM Optical Transceiver
Optical Optical Transceivers are available as multi-mode or single-mode versions. If you want to use a Optical Transceiver variation, which is not listed above, please contact us! We are pleased to produce Optical Transceivers according to your requirements.

BlueOptics Optical Transceivers use the same components as Optical Transceivers from the original manufacturers. BlueOptics Optical Transceivers preferably use components from the respective market-leading manufacturers in the USA such as Avago, Oclaro and Lumentum lasers and Maxim Integrated, Netlogic, Mindspeed or Analog Devices ICs. While Optical Transceivers are usually sold at a very high price, CBO can offer Optical Transceivers at a significantly lower cost due to own production without sacrificing quality. As a result, BlueOptics Optical Transceivers achieve a lifetime of up to 10 years.

NoName and 3rd Party OEM Optical Transceivers mostly use cheap components of Asian companies, in the worst case cheap replicas from China. These Optical Transceivers have a function at the very first moment, but they cannot achieve the longevity of market leading manufacturers of Optical Transceivers products.

During this time, you will receive free support for your Optical Transceiver and of course you can always talk to the CBO team. In the rarely event of a fault of the Optical Transceiver you will receive a new Optical Transceiver free of charge to minimize unwanted downtime.
