A X2 Transceiver is a combination of transmitter and receiver for the transfer of optical signals. The X2 Transceiver uses an electronic to optical converter to translate the signals within the X2 Transceiver. For the transmission, the X2 Transceiver uses LEDs or lasers. The reception of the X2 Transceiver signals takes place via a PIN or an APD detector. X2 Transceivers can be used in various hardware systems, e.g. in switches, servers, HBA's, etc. X2 Transceivers usually have an SC duplex connector. Furthermore, X2 Transceivers are hot pluggable and thus can be used or removed during operation.

BlueOptics X2 Transceivers also offer Digital Diagnostic Monitoring, which allows you to monitor various values of the X2 Transceiver, such as the temperature, while being in live mode.

BlueOptics X2 Transceivers use the same components as X2 Transceivers from the original manufacturers. BlueOptics X2 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.

As a result, BlueOptics X2 Transceivers achieve a lifetime of up to 10 years.

NoName and 3rd Party OEM X2 Transceivers mostly use cheap components of Asian companies, in the worst case cheap replicas from China. These X2 Transceivers have a function at the very first moment, but they cannot achieve the longevity of market leading manufacturers of X2 Transceivers products.
