Performance Comparison Between 10g Optical Modules and Gigabit Optical Modules

This article mainly introduces the performance comparison between 10G optical modules and Gigabit optical modules, and explains to readers the similarities and differences of the two optical modules, as well as some tips and suggestions for selecting applicable scenarios.


With the continuous development of network technology, gigabit optical modules have become the standard adopted by most enterprises at this stage. However, with the increasing bandwidth requirements of enterprises, 10G optical modules have gradually entered people's field of vision. So, what is the difference between a 10G optical module and a Gigabit optical module?


Transmission speed


The maximum transmission speed of Gigabit optical modules is 1.25G, while the maximum transmission speed of 10 Gigabit optical modules is 10G. It can be seen that the transmission speed of the 10G optical module is nearly 10 times faster than that of the Gigabit optical module.


Transmission distance


The maximum transmission distance of Gigabit optical modules is 120km, and the maximum transmission distance of 10 Gigabit optical modules is 80km. Gigabit optical modules are a better choice when longer transmission distances are required.


Power consumption


The power consumption of the 10G optical module is higher than that of the Gigabit optical module during operation. This is due to the faster transmission speed of 10 Gigabit optical modules, which require more energy consumption to ensure the stability of data transmission.


Price


Compared with Gigabit optical modules, the cost of 10 Gigabit optical modules will also be higher. However, with the continuous development of technology and market competition, the price gap between the two modules has gradually decreased.


For most small and medium-sized enterprises, Gigabit optical modules are sufficient to meet their network usage needs. For large-scale technology companies, high-performance computing centers, data centers and other companies that require large amounts of data transmission and high efficiency, it is a better choice to use 10G optical modules. In short, the performance of the 10G optical module is different from that of the Gigabit optical module. When choosing to use, it is necessary to look at the bandwidth required by the scene and the device, make comprehensive measurements and considerations, and select the most suitable type of optical module.
