1 Gbps Ports
- 1000BASE-T (Only available at Cologix VAN2 and Cologix VAN3)
10 Gbps Ports
- 10GBASE-BX (bi-directional single fibre)
100 Gbps Ports
Ethernet auto-negotiation is configured on all ports.
These are officially supported media types. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org to request support for an additional media type, and we will try to accommodate your request.
10GBASE-BX media utilizes 1330nm TX, 1270nm RX bi-directional single fibre transceivers with -4dBm transmit power and -14dBm receive sensitivity (up to 20km range). Many network vendors refer to these as Downstream transceivers. Participants will need an Upstream transceiver with 1270nm TX, 1330nm RX. A single fibre cross-connect, which contains two fibres, can be split to connect to two ports using 10GBASE-BX. Technically, this media type should be called 10GBASE-BR as it uses 64b/66b just like 10GBASE-LR, but most vendors refer to it as 10GBASE-BX.
10GBASE-ER media utilizes 1550nm transceivers with 0dBm transmit power and -16dBm receive sensitivity (up to 40km range).
10GBASE-DWDM media utilizes 100 Ghz grid (Ch 21 to Ch 60) DWDM transceivers with 0dBm transmit power and -23dBm receive sensitivity (up to 80km range). Please specify your required channel during the order process.
