Just in the last month, working from home has moved from a perk for employees and a cost-savings to businesses to a social distancing requirement for many of us around the world.

With so many more people moving to a virtual workplace in such a rapid timeframe, data center networks are stressed. Already there are so many applications based on cloud services running on data center networks. When people are working from home, they are leveraging services that live on the cloud including video conferencing, online webinars, online learning and streaming other content. These applications require increased bandwidth and performance of the data centers to meet the demand from work, socialization and entertainment at home. How can data centers extend their power? Transition Networks has a solution.

Small Form-Factor Pluggables or Optical Transceivers

To expand the capacity of data centers, companies need to add more servers and storage which will require more 10G/40G/100G links to the aggregation/edge switches. An effective way for companies looking to quickly and cost-effectively enable this expansion, is to add high speed optical transceivers such as 10G SFP+, 40G QSFP+ and 100G QSFP28 to upgrade link speed.

SFPs or optical transceivers support a variety of cable types and connectors for network scalability, providing enterprises additional flexibility to meet the specific needs of their cabling infrastructure while also providing the ability for future upgrades or changes. SFPs support a wide range of data rates and fiber types, available for Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE networks. SFP’s can be a cost-effective way to bring agility and flexibility to existing networks, with a high level of quality.

Transition Networks Compatibility

Transition Networks offer a complete line of optical devices that are compatible with a variety of systems and platforms. All Transition Networks SFPs are compliant with the Multi-Sourcing Agreement (MSA), ensuring interoperability with all other MSA compliant networking devices. Our SFPs are also Cisco compliant and include 1G to 100G speeds as well as increased intelligence with Diagnostic Monitoring Interface (DMI). DMI provides network managers a real-time view of SFP transceiver operating data such as temperature, supply voltage and more.

Offering agile and flexible solutions to existing networks, Transition Networks SFPs have the highest level of quality standards and are backed by dedicated service and support. Transition Networks' Cisco-compatible SFPs can be installed in all switches including Cisco SFP-based routers and switches.

Transition Networks understands that these are unprecedented times for businesses, and are here to help businesses and service providers with connectivity solutions as employees continue to work remotely. At a time of uncertainty, pluggable transceivers offer a cost-effective and flexible means to accommodate network modification and growth, while still using existing network devices.
