R&M approves Finisar transceivers

Reichle & De-Massari (R&M), the Swiss developer and provider of connectivity systems for network infrastructures, has approved Finisar, the world’s largest supplier of optical communication components and subsystems, as its transceiver supplier.

Transceivers from market and technology leader Finisar will support R&M’s high-performance optical cabling solutions. R&M says its decision is aimed at supporting organisations with data centre capital expenditure savings and the implementation of leading-edge network link architectures.

The accelerating growth of data centres around the world is pushing IT infrastructure managers to adopt costly single mode connectivity for link lengths which exceed the distance limits inherent to the IEEE 40G standard for multimode fibre cabling.
