This module provides two ultra-high-performance 10Gigabit Ethernet connections. 10Gigabit Ethernet is a standards-based method for connecting at a speed 10x that of Gigabit Ethernet, or 10 Gigabits per second, while retaining critical Ethernet properties such as pack format. The module requires XFP-style transceivers, sold separately, to provide the physical media connection.
XFPs offered by 3Com for the Switch 8800 include 10GBASE-LR for single-mode fiber up to 10 Km, and 10GBASE-ER for single-mode fiber up to 40 Km. 10Gigabit Ethernet is the perfect aggregation technology when deploying gigabit to the desktop or for interconnecting core and distribution switches. Use 10Gigabit Ethernet to connect one Switch 8800 to another with a similar module, or to another switch with a standards-based 10GBASE-X connection.
Provides a single high-performance fiber optic connection between devices for bandwidth-intensive applications Allows easy connection of server farm aggregators to the Switch 8800 Provides a migration path from multiple aggregated Gigabit Ethernet links to high performance 10Gigabit Ethernet switch-to-switch connections Uses industry standard XENPAK modular transceivers
