Flexoptix Universal Transceiver

flex-optics unboxing

With transceivers from Flexoptix, connections between network components from different manufacturers can be easily made.

For this purpose, the transceivers can be programmed individually and fit almost all manufacturers.

flex-content-opticsThe Flexoptix Programmer - the Flexbox

The transceivers must be programmed for the appropriate device before use. For this there is the Flexbox. So you can easily select the right device for the right device and plug in the transceiver. In about 10 seconds, the transceiver is then coded and can then be used directly.

For example, if you need 20 transceivers for Dell switches, you'll choose the right encoding and program the first transceiver. With a click you can then specify that the next inserted transceiver should be programmed with the same coding. Then you can program all 20 transceivers in a short time without having to choose the right manufacturer every time.

The flexbox Supports CSFP, SFP, SFP +, XFP, QSFP +, QSFP28, SFP28 and is practically a Swiss army knife for networkers.

It is not always possible to have all the components of a manufacturer in the network. For our example, we have a Dell 8024F connected to an 2. Dell 8024F with SFP + transceivers and Juniper EX4600 with QSFP +, SFP and SFP + and a WDM with different light waves, ie SFP + CWDM modules. The EX4600 was then connected to a Juniper SRX1500 and connected to various Dell servers using the Broadcom and Intel network adapters.


DAC cable for direct connections

Practical are also the ones offered by Flexoptix DAC cable, You simply program the two modules with the required coding and have a ready-made cable to connect the network equipment. This is of course much cheaper than 2 transceiver and matching fiber. The DAC cables are available in different lengths. For our test, we used relatively short because the components were all built together.

Selection and offers

The transceivers and DAC cables can be obtained directly from Flexoptix and even pre-configured on request. For very urgent you can pick up the goods.

For networkers, you can now simply deposit the small Flexobot in the data center and simply encode the appropriate modules for new products or maintenance work. You do not have to hold all the cables and adapters for all manufacturers but simply program the modules the way you need them.

The whole thing for a low price.
