What is a Transceiver Module?


The question ‘What is a transceiver module?’ is a perfectly reasonable enquiry for anyone handling the task of building or revamping an IT infrastructure. Whether you’re dealing with a personal network or one designed to handle the requirements of a business, it’s useful to know exactly what role each part of that network performs in order to make the right choices when handling procurement.

Transceiver Modules Explained

In simple terms, a transceiver module is a piece of equipment which contains both transceivers and receivers within the same circuitry. It allows information to be transmitted and received and, as such, is at the heart of any communication network. The modules used within modern networks – and those purchased from My Next Box – come in the form of a Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) module which plugs into the SFP port of a network switch and transmits information along fibre optic cables.

Refurbished Equipment

The key question to ask after ‘What is a transceiver module?’ is ‘Do I have to purchase new equipment?’ The answer is that the refurbished modules we provide represent a much better option.

To begin with, it should be noted that purchasing refurbished equipment from us doesn’t represent any drop in quality. Every item we stock has been tested and passed with a 12 month Return to Base warranty and will be shipped to you in premium packaging. The fact that we supply equipment at a greatly reduced price delivers an instant benefit in terms of lowering your outlay, but the long term environmental impact of opting for refurbished equipment is just as vital.

Long Term Sustainability

By purchasing refurbished modules you create a sustainable pattern of procurement which greatly reduces your impact on the wider environment in one simple step. Actions like this not only help to secure the legacy you pass on to future generations, they also give a massive boost to the corporate social responsibility profile of any organisation.
