There are more than 9 billion wireless devices in the world, and it takes a lot of computing power to keep them all connected. As your workforce becomes more mobile, upgrading wireless networking devices will become essential to keeping everyone online. BuySellRam.com will buy your extra wireless devices, including indoor access points, outdoor and industrial access points, wireless controllers and cloud-managed access points. Cisco indoor access points are designed for centralized or stand-alone access. Outdoor access points are designed to withstand rugged conditions. And Cisco LAN controllers help you manage your distributed wireless access points.
Optics & Transceivers
Optical transceivers turn data into light for transmission on fiber-optic networks. We buy all brands of new and used optical transceivers. Cisco is the most well-known brand, but we will also buy components from HPE, Brocade, Dell, Juniper, Extreme, Arista, and more. Some of the most popular transceiver modules include Cisco 400G transceiver, Cisco 100G transceiver, Cisco 40G transceiver, Cisco 25G transceiver and Cisco 10G transceiver modules.
How to Choose the Right Industrial Switches
An industrial switch or ethernet switch uses mainstream technology like TCP/IP protocol to connect ethernet nodes in a rugged environment. If you need network access in a manufacturing plant that is exposed to plenty of dirt, debris, and moisture, then you need to upgrade from a commercial switch to an industrial switch.
- Determine the type of network switch that fits your operation: unmanaged switches are simple and open, managed switches are complex, more secure, and require dedicated IT staff to manage.
- Choose a PoE Switch: Power over Ethernet switches allow for devices like VoIP phone systems and cameras to be connected to the network.
- Determine network speed requirements: For email and general file transfers, networks between 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps are sufficient. Large file transfers like high-quality video will require speeds of 1,000 Mbps or greater. And data-intensive networks start at 10GB speeds, which have become the industry standard for corporate networks.
- Determine the number of ports: A single switch offers between 2 and 64 ports. Choosing an appropriate number of ports is important to building a connected network. You will want enough ports to accommodate all connected devices, plus extra ports for future growth.
Don’t forget to take the unknowns of future growth into account when building a new network. Features like programmable software will change the number of connected devices at any given time, and your network should be able to scale bigger or smaller as needs dictate.
How to Choose an Industrial Router
Industrial routers take on a lot more work than your typical home-based wired or wireless router. Even in typical office settings, router networks rely on multiple devices, including core routers and edge routers, to disperse the workload. But in an industrial environment, a single device tackles the entire network, and it is often in less than ideal conditions. This means that choosing the right industrial router is a complex decision.
Factors to consider when choosing an industrial router:
- Housing and Mounting Durability
- Wireless Technology
- Industry Compliance
- Long Term Support
- Type of Power Supply
- Central Management Interface
- Cloud Integration
- Ability to Run Additional Applications
- External Antennas
The industry standard is small form factor pluggables (SFP). These transceivers offer high-performance connectivity, allowing for more flexibility with copper and optical cables. The SFP transceiver links switches and routers to the network. The key differences in SFP transceivers are bandwidth, wavelength, and distance capabilities.
Your transceiver choice is dictated by compatibility with your network cables. For example, a single node fiber requires a single node transceiver and multinode fiber requires a multinode receiver. Once you find a match, you’ll have more choices to make, like bandwidth. Most manufacturers use bandwidth ratings as a marketing tool and make the information clearly available in the product information, often in the model name.
As a general rule:
- SFP modules go up to 4.25 Gbps
- SFP+ modules go up to 16 Gbps
- SFP28 modules go up to 25 Gbps per channel
