How to Identify the Compatibility and Quality of Compatible Modules?

Saving the cost is a very important and factor in a large network transmission system, especially when it needs lots of the modules,especially when it using the original modules. So then the compatible modules appeared to solve such problem.
How to Identify the Compatibility and Quality of Compatible Modules?
But How Can We ensure the Compatible Modules Quality When Purchasing?
Today we want to share some with you:

1. Does it have the DDMI of  SFF-8472 Standard ?

SFF-8472 standard is the key factor of judging wether the compatibility and quality of the modules  is OK or not . it ruled by the SFF committee to identify the DDMI.
DDMI is also called DDM or DOM, (Digital Diagnostic Monitoring), having the warning function if the parameter is higher or lower than the usual parameter when working.

DDM monitoring parameter :



Standard error









-40~8.2 dBm



Output Power

-40~8.2 dBm


Bias Current

0~131 mA




2. Does it have the fault location function ?

Fault location function can help engineer to find the problem and repair the modules more quickly , and reduce down time.
If compatible optical modules have the DDM , we can use the DDM to analysis every parameter of the modules , such as output power,VCC ...and so on , then find the problem in the whole link road.

3. Does it have passed the compatibility testing?

Compatibility need to be tested on the switches , and checking the work conditions of modules. This is the only determining step of the compatible modules.
The higher the performance of the optical module, the stronger the compatibility.

4. How does Fiberland compatible modules test the compatibility?

Every module of Fiberland company will do the switch compatibility testing before packaging.
We support so many famous brands of network switches, such as Cisco, Juniper, Huawei, HP, H3C, Alcatel-Lucent, MikroTik ...and so on.
The quality of the optical module can directly affect the transmission effect of the optical fiber link. Although the quality of the original optical module is excellent, but its price is very expensive. Now many compatible optical modules are comparable to the original module, but are competitively priced and can help users save a lot of cost. Fiberland is such an optical module supplier, the optical module we supply now has been widely praised by customers both at home and abroad.

    With the continuous development of 5G communication technology, 100G modules are gradually becoming popular. We know that there are many kinds of packages for 100G optical modules. From 2000 to now, the optical module package types have been rapidly developed. Its main package types are: GBIC, SFP, XENPAK, SNAP12, X2, XFP, SFP+, QSFP/QSFP+, CFP, CXP. In the fast-developing network era, some 100G optical modules avoid the risk of being eliminated, and upgraded and revised with the wave of the Internet, such as 100G CFP optical modules.

    1. What is the CWDM SFP? The CWDM optical module is an optical module using CWDM technology to implement the connection between the existing network device and the CWDM multiplexer/demultiplexer. When used with a CWDM multiplexer/demultiplexer, CWDM optical modules can increase network capacity by transmitting multiple data channels with separate optical wavelengths (1270 nm to 1610 nm) on the same single fiber.

    AOC is the abbreviation of Active Optical Cables, which is called Active Optical Cables in Chinese. AOC active optical is to encapsulate two optical modules and cable together. Because the medium of transmission in the middle is optical cable, AOC optical module, which contains laser devices, has a higher price for DAC. However, its optical aperture is not exposed, it has high reliability, and its working distance can be customized for a long distance of less than 100 meters.

    Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology is capable of transmitting data in an optical fiber using bit wavelength parallel transmission or string line transmission using the wavelength of the laser.It is widely used in different fields of communication networks, including long-distance backbone networks, metropolitan area networks (MANs), residential access networks, and local area networks (LANs).The DWDM optical module is the optical module that uses this technology, so the DWDM optical module has high bandwidth and long-distance transmission characteristics.
