GBIC Technology-Optoelectronic Transceivers
The GBIC (Gigabit Interface Converter) MSA is a specification
for a pluggable, hot-swappable Gigabit interface for Fibre Channel,
Gigabit Ethernet, and other applications. The MSA Document provides a common specification for systems manufacturers,
system integrators, and suppliers of pluggable Gigabit Interface Converters.
It is an internal working document of the SFF Committee, an industry
ad hoc group.
Most GBIC modules are Optoelectronic Transceivers or optical transceivers,
multimode (850nm) or single-mode (1310nm). MRV supplies these modules
in addition to optical transceivers at other wavelengths for use in
CWDM (Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing) applications, and a wide
variety of copper GBICs for various protocols. MRV provides a wide
range of GBIC-based systems with powerful features for physical network
connectivity, including media converters, distance extenders, cross-connects,
Ethernet switching and routing equipment, and wave division multiplexing
solutions. The power of the GBIC is in the density, fl exibility,
management and cost savings.
