Embedded networking maximizes investments

The ability to synchronously replicate data between data centers is key to the successful implementation of a remote back-up strategy. Today, 32/16/8G Fibre Channel is the traffic protocol of choice for this type of storage area networking (SAN). The certified Smartoptics transceivers support connectivity for:

  • 32G IR – Fibre Channel, DWDM
  • 16G ER – single channel, CWDM and DWDM
  • 8G ZR – single channel, CWDM and DWDM

The approval allows all transceivers to be embedded directly in to the Cisco Fibre Channel switches for simple, cost effective and scalable networking. The embedded solutions allow Cisco users to build scalable transmission networks for up to 8 CWDM or 80 DWDM channels over a single dark fiber connection.

The unique approval of Smartoptics embedded transceiver solutions with Cisco’s multi-layer fabric switches offers best in class one-stop solutions for data center connectivity, making sure users get the most out of their systems budget.
