Universal Transceiver - Our Voodoo

ENHANCE EVERY DETAIL, MAKE NO FUSS ABOUT IT

At Flexoptix, we do a lot to make our Universal Transceivers a truly unique user experience. On the one side the industry standard MSA gives a good basis for high quality transceivers – but this is not where we stop. There is a lot more to accomplish, before a transceiver can call itself „universal“. It’s the many small details, which make the usage of universal transceivers this hustle free and convincing.

INNARDS OF A UNIVERSAL TRANSCEIVER

Universal Transceiver
Part number:
Well - it's a partnumber/SKU. You need more, you reorder
Channel-ID:
Identify the channel/wavelength of your Universal xWDM transceiver without unplugging it
Specifications:
Check most relevant specs like wavelength, distance and data-rate right on the label
Serial no and bar code:
We track each and every transceiver based on serial number to simplify handling and optimize support. Good to have it by hand when contacting us
Golden finger:
It's defined in the MSA, but for long lasting super-connecting performance we take good care of the tolerance and cleaning procedure.
TOSA/ROSA:
Quality optical components for high performance and reliability - always keep it clean and protected
Orange big head:
This will protect the optical part of your transceiver while not in operation. Like you, we fiddled often enough with the small, black ones in high port density situations. So we desinged the big heads (orange, for sure) with extra big latch for facile removal, even if transceiver is already installed in device.
Side-label:
Something is missing on our standard lable? This is our blank label for your own tag.
Quality housing:
Long lasting, thanks to solid physical protection and optimal heat dissipation.
FLEXBOX-Ready micro controller:
FLEXBOXready micro controller: This is the interface to each of your Universal Transceivers for configuration and performance monitoring by the FLEXBOX.
