Optic Fiber Network


I just put together an optic fiber network.
The components used:

  1. Switch: TRENDnet TEG-30284 4x10G SFP+ Slots, $300 on Amazon
  2. NIC: Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-2 about $150
  3. Cable: 10Gb Multimode Duplex OFNP Fiber from Cable Matters $10 On Amazon. Each cable needs two modules.
  4. Transceiver module: SFP+, 10GBASE-SR, MMF, 850nm, from 10Gtek, $20 on Amazon

The installation was smooth as long as the cable, module and switch match.
