Tip of the Week – 10 July 2013
Tip of the Week – Are you offering GigE Internet?
Are you offering or planning to offer 1GigE Internet to your customers?
You may be surprised to hear that many consumerâ€™s computers cannot achieve these data rates even with GigE NIC cards installed.
A GigE connection theoretically should provide 125 MB/s data transfer rate under ideal conditions.
But customerâ€™s computer limiting factors include:
Therefore, although you can offer the GigE Internet speeds, many customers will not be able to fully utilize it.
Looking for the right optical transceivers for your network?
Gives me a call, we carry a variety of 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps transceivers and transponders including:
- Hard disk read/write speed which varies greatly but typically 12 to 60 MB/s (96 to 480 mbps) for newer computers. If you need to speed things up, replace the hard disk with a faster one or a RAM drive using DDR2 RAM which has a slowest speed of 3,000 MB/s.
- Bus transfer speed. PCI bus has a speed of 133 MB/s (running at 33MHz, 32 bit) but this is shared amongst many other computer components. So the actual connection bus transfer speed would be much slower. Upgrading to a PCI Express bus with a speed of 250 MB/s will certainly help.
- For Ethernet and TCP/IP protocol actual data transfer rate is about 6% less due to protocol overhead.
Customer local LAN speed. Are they using GigE Switches and Routers?
- 1310/1550 XFP, SFP, SFP+, QSFP+, GBIC, CFP, Zenpak
- Channel tunable DWDM XFP and SFP
- OTN FEC G.709 transceivers
- Long reach 10G transceivers with budgets of 28dB, 1G up to 37dB
- Compatible with most manufacturers equipment guaranteed.
