Shenzhen, China, April 21, 2020 − Recently, Gigalight's 10GBASE-T SFP + copper transceiver module passed the strict 1KV surge voltage test and other test items on the client side to achieve batch delivery, marking that the product's performance and reliability have reached industry leading levels.

The difficulty of 10GBASE-T testing comes from the modulation method of PAM16. The complexity of the 16-level pulse amplitude makes the commonly used eye diagram testing (such as 100BASE-T) and mask testing (such as 1000BASE-T) difficult to achieve, so IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T physical layer conformance test shifts to spectrum measurement, which requires multiple expensive test instruments to build a test system to complete the test. The newly produced 10G copper transceiver module of Gigalight can pass the most stringent IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T physical layer conformance test. The test items include 8 major test items.

The Transmission Distance Table of Gigalight's 10GBASE-T SFP+ Copper Transceiver Module

Transmission Standard Copper Network Cable Maximum Transmission Distance
10GBASE-T Cat6a 30 meters
2.5GBASET / 5GBASE-T Cat5e 50 meters
1000BASE-T Cat5e 100 meters

The Gigalight's 10GBASE-T SFP+ copper transceiver module uses Category 6 or Category 7 copper cabling to achieve 10G Ethernet transmission at a distance of 30 meters, the operating data rate can be automatically negotiated and matched, and the previous twisted pair cabling resources can be reused to complete 10GE network deployment. At the same time, it supports 1000GBASE-T (100 meters), 2.5GBASE-T (50 meters), and 5GBASE-T (50 meters). The module is compliant with SFF-8431 and SFF-8432 MSA standards, and the maximum power consumption is only 2.5 watts. The product can be applied to a variety of harsh environments and supports 0-70 degree operating temperature range (commercial-grade).
