How does the GBC Photonics SRD work?

Universal single rate and dual rate transceivers programmable with the GBC SRD. The last of a series of four publications about the GBC Photonics environment.

An SRD is one element of an ecosystem built on a private GBC Photonics cloud which hosts thousands of codes that the user of optical transceivers can benefit from when utilising this device.

GBC Photonics Simple Recode Device (SRD) is a professional device designed to alter the configuration of optical transceivers (SFP/SFP+/XFP/QSFP+/QSFP28/CFP/CFP2/CFP4) by modifying their memory in accordance with appropriate MSA standards. It also enables you to alter the wavelength, or channel number, in tuneable DWDM modules.

The SRD will reduce the purchase costs of optical transceivers because instead of buying a variety of transceivers compatible with particular devices from multiple manufacturers, you can use universal transceivers which can easily be reconfigured to work with any target device.

This allows for a significant reduction in the cost of stock as you purchase just one type of transceiver with the aim of using them with a variety of devices, configuring them during installation. Therefore, you no longer need to keep large stocks of transceivers of different types to be able to address the needs of particular devices in your network infrastructure.

GBC Photonics SRDs can also be used to provide remote technical support.

You can diagnose a problem, apply new code and test in the user’s environment without having to send transceivers to technical support engineers for modification, and then back again. This significantly shortens the time needed to implement a change and cuts the costs of such operations.

Thanks to a Simple Recode Device, universal 100G single and dual rate transceivers can be programmed to work with network devices from multiple brands. Additionally, in the case of dual rate transceivers, an SRD will easily allow you, with just one click, to set a default mode for transceivers to work on Ethernet or OTU4 if the target devices are designed to operate using only one of these standards. This feature makes these transceivers even more universal and useful.

Single and dual rate optical modules in GBC Photonics’ portfolio are as follows:

GBC Photonics constantly undertakes research projects and develops its products so that they can work for you, not you for them.
