Curvature provides a broad assortment of optical and copper transceivers from top-tier manufacturers such as Cisco, Juniper, Arista, Dell EMC, and HPE.
We also offer our own Curvature brand product line, featuring NEW compatible transceivers at a fraction of the price of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). We specialize in 1GE, 10GE, 25GE, 40GE, 100GE, and 400GE transceivers. Most products are available for same-day shipping and come with a lifetime warranty.
TYPES OF TRANSCEIVERS
1GbE is Ethernet that transmits one gigabit per second in a data center environment.
GBIC, GLC, SFP
10GbE transmits 10 gigabits per second in a data center environment—acting as an incredibly fast backbone, connecting devices, and improving network performance.
XENPAK, X2, XFP, SFP+
25GbE transmits 25 gigabits per second. Since it is an even division of 100 Gigabit Ethernet, migrating from one to another is more economical compared to, for instance, moving from 40 GbE to 100 GbE, since you can simply use four streams.
40GbE transmits 40 gigabits per second in a data center environment.
100 GbE transmits 100 gigabits per second in a data center environment.
400 GbE transmits 400 gigabits per second in a data center environment.
A multiplexer will combine and retransmit signals coming from transceivers.
Optical cables carry light signals, usually in close proximity from sender to receiver. Most often found in older systems, optical cables are used to send sound and audio signals from device to device.
Most data centers and enterprise networks have IT infrastructure from multiple OEMs. When it’s time to refresh or upgrade, you benefit when you have an industry-leading supplier such as Curvature.
In addition, after an asset goes End of Life (EoL), End of Service Life (EoSL), or End of Sale (EoS), you still need to find the gear to keep your data center running. Curvature can source equipment long after an OEM stops manufacturing or servicing the parts.
The benefits of optimizing your enterprise and data center networks with equipment from Curvature cannot be overstated:
