Network Transceivers Information
Network transceivers are small devices that connect network endpoints and send and receive analogue or digital signals. In LAN networks, they are used together with access points to ensure that these signals are transmitted through all network segments.
A transceiver is a device, and usually, it’s in a single device. This is commonly used in networking as a modular network interface.
A network transceiver is a part transmitter part receiver in a single package, it can both emit signals as well as receive signals flowing through the wire. LAN transceivers are part of the network interface card, However, some networks require an external transceiver.
Types of network transceiver:
Half-duplex transceivers can either transmit or receive signals. This is because both the transmitter and receiver are connected to the same antenna using an electronic switch.
Full duplex transceivers can do both transmit and receive signals. It is done by combining different frequencies for receiving and transmission of radio signal
Transceivers in LAN & WiFi Communication Network (Ethernet transceivers).
Ethernet transceivers are used to connect access points and switches in LAN. They combine technology in Ethernet and RF transponders to improve WiFi speed between media units.
