An optical transceiver is a network device that can both send and receive data. An optical transceiver is an important part of a fiber optic network and is used to convert electrical signals to optical signals and vice versa. An optical transceiver is connected to a dedicated port on a switch, router or other network device to convert the port into a fiber optic interface.
