Overview Mini GBIC And SFP Plus Transceiver Modules


FiberStore SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggables) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. SFP transceivers are designed to support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and other communications standards. SFP module (volume ratio GBIC module reduced by half, and more than double the number of ports can be configured in the same panel. SFP module GBIC function basically the same, some switch vendors called the small of GBIC (Mini GBIC).

SFP transceivers have many different kinds of sending and receiving, users can choose appropriate for each link of the transceiver, and to provide a based on the available optical fiber type (such as multimode optical fiber and single mode optical fiber) can achieve “optical performance”. Available optical SFP modules are generally divided into the following categories: wavelength 850 nm / 550 m distance of the MMF (SX), 1310 nm wavelength / 10 kilometers distance from SMF (LX), 1550 nm wavelength/XD 40 kilometers distance 80 km, 80 km distance from ZX, distance of the EX or EZX, and DWDM. SFP transceivers provide copper interface, also makes the main host devices can also be designed for optical fiber communication via UTP cable communication network. There is also a wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM), and single fiber “two-way” (1310/1490 nm wavelength ascending/descending) of the SFP.SFP Transceivers also have many brands,Such as major brands we provide Cisco SFP (Cisco mini gbic),HP SFP, Juniper SFP, Netgear SFP etc..All our fiber transceivers are 100% compatible with major brands.

Commercial SFP transceivers provide rate reached 4.25 G BPS. Several kinds of packaging form for XFP 10 Gbps transceiver, and SFP encapsulation is consistent with the new variant “SFP+”. FiberStore manufactures complete range of compatible SFP+ transceivers, such as SFP+ SR(SFP-10G-SR), SFP+ LR, SFP+ LRM, SFP+ ER, SFP+ ZR, CWDM SFP+, DWDM SFP+, BiDi SFP+, and compatible Cisco SFP+(cisco sfp-10g-sr), HP SFP+, Juniper SFP+, Netgear SFP+ etc.

Our SFP+ Transceiver supports Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and Sonet/SDH applications across many switching and routing platforms.FiberStore is a good fiber optic transceiver modules wholesale website.

XFP vs SFP+ Transceivers


Fiber optic transceiver module is a self-contained component that can both transmit and receive. Each of these physical form-factors is defined in a standards document know as a Multi-Source Agreement, or MSA. Optical Transceivers types can be generally grouped into those supporting transmission speeds on the order of 1Gbps and those designed to support rates in the range of 10Gbps. Optical transceivers form factors associated with 10Gbps transmission are: XFP, X2, XENPAK and SFP+. This post is focus on what’s XFP, what’s SFP+, XFP vs SFP+, and what’s the difference?

FiberStore Provide 10G SFP Plus Transceiver Versus XFP Transceiver

What’s XFP Transceiver?

XFP transceiver is a small form factor hot pluggable module designed for 10G network applications including 10Gig Ethernet and fibre channel. XFP transceivers are with dual LC interface and the industrial acknowledged standards for XFP is called XFP MSA. XFP is a hot-swappable and protocol independent module. It means that you can replace the component without shutting down the whole system. XFP can be replaced without interrupting the operation of your system. Its usual operation is at optical wavelengths of 850 nm, 1310 nm, or 1550 nm. To be able to install this module in your computer, you should have one of these: 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, Synchronous Optical Networking at OC-192 rates, Synchronous Optical Networking STM-64, 10 Gbit/s Optical Transport Network OTU-2, and parallel optics links. XFP modules are able to function with just a single wavelength or dense wavelength division multiplexing techniques.

What’s SFP+ Transceiver

Comparing with other 10G modules such as XFP, X2 and Xenpak, SFP+ transceiver is the smallest 10G form factor.SFP+ module is interchangeable with SFP module and can be used in the same cages as SFP module.SFP plus is an upgraded version of the small form pluggable transceivers.SFP(small form-factor pluggable) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. The electrical interface to the host board for SFP module and SFP+ module is the same serial.

XFP vs SFP+, What’s the difference?

SFP transceiver modules and XFP transceiver modules have some different,such as the size and speed,SFP is smaller in size than XFP,and the XFP carries more speed then SFP.And they also have the same,they are similar in design.

Overview 10G SFP+,X2,XENPAK and XFP Transceiver Modules


PriceCable offers a full range of Industry compliant SFP+,Xenpak, X2 and 10G XFP transceiver for 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments.In computer networking,we know that 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GE or 10GbE or 10 GigE) refers to various technologies for transmitting Ethernet frames at a rate of 10 gigabits per second (10×109 or 10 billion bits per second), first defined by the IEEE 802.3ae-2002 standard.

Xenpaks are supported on routers and some Catalyst switches. The small formfactor X2s are supported on the Catalyst Switches. XFPs are supported on routers with Shared Port Adapter (SPA).They provide customers a dual-rate interface for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Packet-over-SONET/SDH (POS) connectivity.

10 Gigabit Modules

10G SFP+ Modules:

PriceCable 10G SFP+ transceivers are designed for the high performance integrated duplex data transmission over single mode optical fiber. The improved small form-factor pluggable(SFP+) is definitely an enhanced version of the SFP that supports data rates as much as 10 Gbit/s, the newest industry format supported by many network component vendors. The 10GBASE SFP+ modules offer customers a wide variety of 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options for data center, enterprise wiring closet, and service provider transport applications.

10G X2 Modules:

10G X2 Module is a type of 10 Gigabit Ethernet optical transceiver. X2 transceiver is based on Xenpak transceiver module, and it has same function with Xenpak transceiver. X2 Module also can use one transceiver to fulfill all 10G Ethernet optical port function. X2 Transceiver is better for density installation for it is only half size of Xenpark transceivers.Its electrical interface for that host board can also be standardized and it is called XAUI (4 x 3.125 Gb/s).

10G XENPAK Modules:

10G XENPAK Module is a highly integrated, Serial optical transponder module for high-speed, 10Gbit/s data transmission applications. Xenpak transceiver is packed in a 4.8 x 1.4 x 0.7 inch package, use DFB laser components, Xenpak working distance via G652 multimode fiber could reach up to 10km, another important components inside the Xenpak is the MUX/DEMUX parts, it consume 50% of the power and result in the bigger size. XENPAK modules are offered for physical layer interfaces supporting multi-mode and single mode fiber optic cables and InfiniBand copper cables with connectors referred to as CX4. Transmission distances vary from 100 metres (330 ft) to 80 kilometres (50 mi) for fiber and as much as 15 metres (49 ft) on CX4 cable. Newer XENPAKs while using 10GBase-LX4 standard operated using multiple wavelengths on legacy multi-mode fibres at distances of up to 300 metres (980 ft), eliminating the necessity to reinstall cable in a building when upgrading certain 1 Gbit/s circuits to 10 Gbit/s.

10G XFP Modules:

The 10GB XFP transceiver module is a hot-swappable I/O device that plugs into 10-Gigabit ports. The XFP is a standard for transceivers for high-speed computer network and telecommunication links which use optical fiber, and its interface to other electrical components which is called XFI. XFP modules typically operate at near-infrared wavelengths (colors) of 850 nm, 1310 nm or 1550 nm.XFP modules make use of an LC fiber connector type, which makes it easily achieve high port density applications.
