How do I upgrade a 10 Gbit/s /25 Gbit/s network to 40 Gbit/s /100 Gbit/s

With the rapid promotion and application of emerging technologies such as cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and 5G, the continuous influx of data traffic prompts major service providers to constantly re-examine the upgrade of data transmission speed in data centers. Data center transmission equipment needs to increase the data transmission speed from the original 10Gbps, 25Gbps to 40Gbps, 100Gbps and even 400Gbps. Due to the cost, power consumption, size and other challenges of higher speed optical Internet, the system architect of the data center must carefully consider to ensure that the best combination choice is made, especially to reduce the failure rate, reduce energy consumption, improve compatibility and so on, so as to take full advantage of the performance improvement brought by the hardware upgrade. Beijing Zhaolink Technology (C-FLINK) from the physical connection of 10Gbps/25Gbps to 40G/100Gps upgrade program:

Solution 1:40g /100G QSFP to 10G/25G 4SFP+ Passive copper core high-speed branch Cable:

One end of a 40G/100G QSFP to 10G/25G 4SFP+ passive copper high-speed branch cable connects to the 40G/100G QSFP ports on a switch and the other end connects to the four 10G/25G SFP+ ports on a switch. It is an economical and efficient way to achieve short distance transmission from 10G/25G to 40G/100G.

Solution 2:40/100g QSFP to 10G/25G 4SFP+ Active Branch Cable:

40G/100G QSFP to 10G/25G 4SFP+ high-speed active optical cable. One end of this cable provides 40G/100G QSFP ports and the other end provides four 10G/25G SFP+ ports. You can connect 40G/100G and 10G/25G devices without upgrading devices. The cost of 40G QSFP+ active cable is lower than that of 40G QSFP+ optical module, and it has the excellent performance of low insertion and low return loss. Meanwhile, the repeatability and interchangeability of 40G active cable is better than that of 40G QSFP+ optical module.

Solution 3: MPO Fiber Jumper:

Two 12-core MPO main optical cables are used for transmission. One end is connected to a module box containing two 12-core MPO-LC jumpers, and then connected to 12 10G/25G(SFP+) optical modules through LC duplex jumpers. Connect the other end of the 2-to-3 MPO conversion jumper to convert the 2x12-core fiber channel into a 3x8-core fiber channel, and then connect the fiber channel to three 40G/100G(QSFP) optical modules to easily connect the 10G/25G and 40G/100G devices. While this requires adding a distribution frame inside the data center, it is completely passive: they require no power supply, no cooling, and no UPS backup, reducing data center power consumption and cost overall. It has proven to be the ideal solution for 40G/100G Ethernet.
