HP transceivers offer some of the most impressive features and are now very serious competition for the other seemingly well-established companies in this sector. The objective of these transceivers is to provide connectivity between network devices. There are a wide variety of transceivers available, including various different types that differ in terms of the connectors they use and their data transfer rates and qualities, and the majority of them contain the highest level components developed by Hewlett-Packard that you should absolutely consider for your installation.

What is a transceiver exactly? And how about Mini GBIC transceivers?
Before we delve into each different variety, we’re going to shed some light on various different concepts related to these small modules, which are constantly evolving year on year to provide better and better performance. An SFP transceiver (small form-factor pluggable) is an active module that accepts both optic inputs and copper cables and is compatible with the vast majority of network component suppliers.
Mini GBIC modules, on the other hand, are devices that can be exchanged while the network is still running. This means that they can be removed and inserted while the switch is active, and often even hot swapped. These devices first emerged in 2001 and their main advantage is the flexibility they offer for the use of fibre connections in data and telecommunication applications At the time, they replaced the SFP standard because they provided a more profitable solution for meeting the demands of high-density data transfer rates. They were also much smaller and offered more interfaces in the same line card. Although, curiously, they kept the same name: SFP modules. These mini GBIC devices, now commonly called SFP, are compatible with practically any brand and provide reliability and solid performance. Their main benefit is that they allow users to configure and update their optic communication networks in a much quicker and safer way.
There are various types of SFP or mini GBIC transceivers available, according to their data transfer rate, the wavelengths that they work with and the maximum data transfer distances, among other specifications. All of these different types, however, are designed to work with various communication standards, such as SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, etc. But what are the defining features of HP transceivers?
The transceiver range from Hewlett-Packard
At Zoostock we work with a wide range of manufacturers that supply us with all kinds of transceiver modules. And HP is without a doubt one of the most interesting ranges we offer. In our catalogue you will find categories of HP transceivers based on the features that are of most interest to you. This enables you to find those that are compatible with your network standard and that are most appropriate for working at the distance you need or that have the most suitable data transmission rate, for example.
As such, in order to find the SFP transceivers that are most suitable for your specific situation, all you need to do is take a look at the corresponding category. We will now explore one of the most interesting ranges of transceivers, which is also a good example of what the enormous company Hewlett-Packard can offer within this sector. They are some of our top recommendations for almost any kind of system and we will provide you with some of the essential features for each of them, such as the transfer rate and wavelengths that they work at.
We’ll begin with a model that is basic, but reliable. This module has a data transfer rate of 1.25 Gbps and works with the 1000BASE-B network standard. It’s a single-mode module that is connected using a single LC connector. It reaches a distance of up to 20 kilometres and works at wavelengths of 1490 nm.
This transceiver is quite similar to the previous one, as you can probably tell from the model number, and its data transfer rate is also 1.25 Gbps, but it works with the 1000BASE-DWDM network standard instead. It’s also a single-mode module but works with dual LC connectors and can reach a distance of up to 120 kilometres. Its wavelength oscillates between 1470 and 1610 nm.
The data transfer rate for this transceiver is no less than 10 Gbps and is used in systems that work with the 10GBASE-LR network standard. It’s a single-mode module, the same as the previous models, reaches a distance of 10 kilometres and works with dual LC connectors, as with the last model. And finally, it works at a wavelength of 1310 nm.
Once again, this model has a data transfer rate of 10 Gbps, but this time it works with the 10GBBASE-SR network standard. It’s a multi-mode module, although it also uses dual LC connectors, and its distance is noticeably shorter, at 300 metres, as is its wavelength, which this time reaches 850 nm.
The data transfer rate for this model is again 10 Gbps and it’s designed to work with the 10GBASE-CWDM network standard. It is also a single-mode module with dual LC connectors. But it reaches a significantly longer distance than the other SFP+ models we’ve just seen: up to 40 kilometres. And finally, its wavelength goes from 1470 to 1610 nm, as with the 3CSFP97-XX.XX.
This is an amplified version of the previous model, and again provides a data transfer rate of 10 Gbps and an architecture designed to work with the 10GBASE-CWDM network standard. It is also a single-mode module that uses dual LC connectors, but is able to reach an increased distance of up to 80 kilometres. The wavelength is again between 1470 and 1610 nm.
All of these HP transceivers should be of great interest, depending on the type of system architecture you’re planning on using them with.
