The TXO Optics range of optical transceivers are built to 100% MSA compliant specifications. MSA stands for “Multi-Source Agreement”, and it is a document that provides the ‘common’ or ‘internationally compatible’ specifications for systems manufacturers, system integrators, and suppliers, so that they can build both the transceivers and the switch and router (or other device) ports that will interoperate with each other. Compliance to an MSA is key to achieving uniformity in equipment and allows us to offer truly vendor equivalent optical transceiver solutions. Please visit www.txo-optics.com to learn more.
