X2 Transceivers

GAO’s X2 transceivers are optical transceiver modules used in computer networking and telecommunications. It is primarily used for high-speed data transmission over fiber-optic cables. The “X2” designation refers to the form factor and interface type of the transceiver module.

GAO’s X2 transceivers are composed of a transmitter, receiver, optical sub-assembly (OSA), control and monitoring circuitry, and connector interface.

The other common names of X2 transceivers are X2 modules, X2 connectors, X2 devices, X2 transmitters, X2 interfaces, X2 adapters, X2 transponders, X2 plugs, X2 receptacles, X2 transmitters and receivers, X2 transceivers, X2 optics, X2 transducers, X2 data links, and X2 optical transceivers.

GAOTek’s X2 transceivers have the following functions:

  • Data transmission: GAO’s X2 transceivers enable the transmission of high-speed data over fiber optic networks. They support data rates of up to 10 Gbps (gigabits per second), making them suitable for applications such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networks.
  • Hot-pluggable: Our X2 transceivers are hot-pluggable, which means they can be inserted or removed from network devices without the need to power down the system. This feature allows for easy installation, replacement, and maintenance without disrupting the network operation.
  • Form factor: GAOTek’s X2 transceivers adhere to the X2 MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) standard, specifying their form factor and electrical interface. The X2 form factor is larger compared to other transceiver types, such as SFP or SFP+, and is primarily used for higher-speed applications.
  • Fiber compatibility: Our X2 transceivers are available in both multi-mode and single-mode versions, supporting different types of fiber optic cables. Multi-mode X2 transceivers are used for shorter distance transmissions within data centers, while single-mode X2 transceivers are suitable for longer-distance connections in wide-area networks.
  • Connector type: GAO’s X2 transceivers utilize a duplex LC (Lucent Connector) interface for connecting to the fiber optic cables. The LC connector is a small, standardized connector that offers reliable and low-loss connections.

GAO Tek’s X2 transceivers are rugged, versatile, and precise measurement instruments. They comply with application industry standards such as X2 MSA (Multi-Source Agreement), IEEE 802.3ae, ITU-T G.652, and G.657.

Our X2 transceivers have the following applications:

  • Data centers: GAO’s X2 transceivers are used in data centers to support high-speed data transmission between servers, switches, and other network equipment. They are commonly employed in 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networks to facilitate efficient and reliable data communication within the data center environment.
  • Telecommunications: Our X2 transceivers are utilized in telecommunications networks to enable high-speed data transmission over long distances. They can be deployed in backbone networks, metropolitan area networks (MANs), and wide-area networks (WANs) to connect various locations and facilitate efficient data transfer.
  • Service providers: GAO Tek’s X2 transceivers find applications in service provider networks, including internet service providers (ISPs) and telecommunications companies. They can be used in core network infrastructure to handle high-bandwidth traffic, such as delivering internet connectivity to residential or commercial customers.
  • Enterprise networks: Our X2 transceivers are employed in enterprise networks to support high-speed connections between network switches, routers, and other networking devices. They enable efficient data transmission within the enterprise network infrastructure, accommodating the increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive applications and services.
  • Campus networks: GAO’s X2 transceivers are utilized in campus networks, such as university campuses or large corporate campuses, to establish high-speed connections between buildings or different network nodes. They facilitate fast and reliable data communication, enabling seamless collaboration and sharing of resources across the campus network.

GAO’s X2 transceivers can be shipped overnight within continental U.S. and Canada, and can be shipped globally.
