Data Center Chassis Switch for High-Performance Cloud Networks

The newly launched FS NC9506 data center chassis switch supports three types of line cards: NC9500-36C-E (36x 100G QSFP28), NC9500-48SC-E (48x 10G SFP+, 2x 100G QSFP28) and NC9500-48TC-E (48x 10GBASE-T RJ45, 2x 100G QSFP28). Supporting EVPN-VXLAN and MLAG, it can achieve layer 2 virtual network fabric dynamically and uninterrupted services. In addition, low latency and zero packet loss are enabled with PFC, ECN, RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE). The NC9506 is the next-generation high-performance core switch designed for cloud network and internet data centers. Other related products include:

25G/100G Transceiver Modules for Industrial Environments

A range of 25G/100G transceiver modules are also released to meet challenges in harsh industrial environments. Tested in targeted switches for superior performance, quality, and reliability, they excel at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C, and provide connectivity options for 25G/100G Ethernet telecom and data center, suitable for both outdoor and indoor deployments.

25G/100G Transceiver Modules for Industrial Environments

The following is a list of the newly launched industrial transceivers.

Produt Max Data Rate Power Consumption Max Cable Distance
25GBASE-LR SFP28 25.78Gbps ≤1.2W 20km
25G DWDM SFP28 25.78Gbps ≤2W 10km

100GBASE-4WDM-20 QSFP28 103.125Gbps (4x 25.78Gbps) <4.5W 20km

DAC/AOC Cables for 40G/200G Networks

FS newly launched DAC/AOC cables are optimized to simplify cabling and provide a cost-effective solution for short links. 200G QSFP56 Active/Passive DAC is designed for use in 200GBASE Ethernet and HDR InfiniBand systems. MC2206310-100 Compatible 40G QSFP+ AOC operates over Multi-Mode Fiber (MMF), and is compliant with the SFF-8436 QSFP+ MSA standards, InfiniBand FDR10. Please check the specifications of our DAC/AOC cables in the lists below.

Product Power Consumption Minimum Bend Radius
200G QSFP56 Active DAC ≤1.5W 33mm
200G QSFP56 Passive DAC <0.1W 34.5mm
40G QSFP+ AOC ≤1.5W 7.5mm
1G SFP DAC ≤0.1W 23mm

PoE Extender for the Point-to-Multipoint PoE Applications

Three types of PoE extenders are now available now in the Australia market. IPOEX4, an industrial PoE+ extender, can obtain a maximum of 95-watt PoE power from 802.3bt PoE++ input port and supplies a maximum of 75-watt PoE power budget for 4 PoE output ports. POEX4 is a 1-port 95W 802.3bt PoE++ to 4-port 802.3af/at Gigabit PoE Extender, while POEX1 is a simpler one with 1 x 802.3af/at PoE+ input to 1 x 802.3af/at output. They are especially designed for the point-to-multipoint PoE applications.

High-Quality Power Cords for Diverse Scenarios

FS also introduced a series of power cords designed for diverse scenarios.

  • International power cords conform to the standards of different countries and regions (Europe, UK, Japan, Australia) to meet diverse needs.

  • High voltage power cords are the recommended cords for high voltage and high current use, and can also be used with heavy machinery as well as networking equipment (PDUs, Servers, UPSs).

  • Hospital grade power cords conform to strict standards for grounding reliability, assembly integrity, strength, and durability, as well as regulatory standards to ensure that power cords are safe and reliable for use in demanding hospital environments.

  • Locking power cords can be installed easily with locking technology that requires no clips or ancillary hardware. They secure the power path and eliminate disconnects, making them a good choice to connect devices such as switches and servers to PDUs or UPSs in data centers.

Patch Panels and Keystone Jacks for Easy Cable Management

The 48-port Cat6a patch panel with 110 punch down termination is now available in the Singapore market. It is color coded for both T568A and T568B wiring, providing the perfect solution for LAN applications. The 24-port blank keystone patch panel can be mounted to any standard 19-inch relay rack, cabinet or wall bracket to create a specialized rackmount patch panel to fit your individual networking requirements. The Cat7 keystone jack makes for a simple installation without the need for a punch-down tool.

We'll be back next month with another update. Have a great month.
