Because of the system it depend on, OC-3 is also called STS-3, STM-1 (SDH). OC3 SFP module is specifically designed for the high performance integrated duplex data link over single mode optical fiber.
These transceiver modules are compliant with the SFP Multisource Agreement (MSA). With the hot pluggability, these modules offer an easy way to be installed into SFP MSA compliant ports at any time without the interruption of the host equipments operating online Archive for January, 2013 Features Of 1000Base-T Copper SFP+ Transceivers Copper transceiver is high performance, cost effective module compliant with the Gigabit Ethernet and 1000BASE-T standards as specified in IEEE 82. 3-22 and IEEE 82.3ab, which supporting 1Mbps data- rate up to 1 meters reach over unshielded twisted-pair CAT 5 cable.
Copper SFPs enable system manufacturers to populate SFP ports with either copper or optical transceivers. 1000Base-T copper SFP is used for copper networks, which refers to GbE over copper, primarily Category 5, 5E, and, increasingly, Category 6 twisted-pair cable. Typical 1000Base SFP+ Transceivers includes Cisco GLC T and SFP GE T,these SFP modules are used in Gigabit networks and they are fully compatible with 1000Base-T. SFP GE T is the copper SFP that are with extended working temperature and DOM support.1000Base-T SFP copper transceiver is designed for single mode (SM) optical fiber. This transceiver is compliant with Gigabit Ethernet and 1000BASE-T standards as specified in IEEE802.3-2002 and IEEE 802.3ab for 1.25 Gigabit over unshielded twisted-pair category-5 cable. It operates on standard Category 5 unshielded twisted pair copper cabling of up to 100m length.
This transceiver is also compliant with RoHS, SFP MSA, FCC 47 SFR Part 15, Class B and SONET/SDH recommendations for OC-48 specifications. It is widely used in serial telecom and datacom applications.
