Gbic modules, hot swappable, features & functions

  1. 1. GBIC Modules, Hot-swappable, Features & Functions GBIC Modules are considered hot-swappable.GBIC (gigabit interface converter) is a transceiver that converts between electricaland optical signals for high-speed networking.A gigabit interface converter (GBIC) module is available in many forms depending onthe model and brand manufacturer. Each has the same job, which is increasing thetransfer speed of data over a network. Companies who need large amounts of datatransferred quickly sometimes use a GBIC module for increased control andcost-effectiveness.FunctionA GBIC module acts as a transceiver that turns electric currents into optical signals,before changing those optical signals into digital electric currents, as stated bysearchcio-midmarket.com. The process was created to simplify switch and hubdesign. Each GBIC module is in place for making system administration ofelectro-optical communication networks easier. These modules plug directly into asystem. They were first designed to support Fibre Channel data networks but are alsoused with Gigabit Ethernet setups. This device made it possible for users to avoidbuying fully populated switching equipment.Transfer SpeedData transfer rates vary on GBIC module model specifications, but they have aminimum of 1 gigabit per second. Manufacturers, such as Cisco, make GBIC moduleswith varying transfer speeds.UsesA GBIC module allows a user to reconfigure fiber links, configure tailor receiver costs,link networking distances and organize network topologies based on setrequirements. Used on a fiber optic or an Ethernet system, GBIC modules can beupgraded, swapped out or plugged in without turning off the computer. Thisflexibility eliminates the need to replace entire system networking boards.
