Network main transmission capacity continues to expand and improve the rate of optical fiber communication makes the modern information network as the main means of transmission. Dramatic increase in the optical communication network, optical transceiver modules lead to a diversity of needs continuous development technology to meet such application requirements.
Optical module how much you know about it, do not worry, follow my steps slowly to understand. Today, we have to first understand which two optical modules. Cisco SFP vs Cisco XFP .
fiber-mart.com SFP (small form-factor pluggable) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. The form factor and electrical interface are specified by a multi-source agreement (MSA). It interfaces a network device motherboard (for a switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a fiber optic or copper networking cable. It is a popular industry format jointly developed and supported by many network component vendors. SFP transceivers are designed to support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and other communications standards.
fiber-mart.com supply various kinds of SFP module 100% compatible with Cisco, HP, Juniper, Net gear, DELL, CWDM SFP, DWDM SFP, BIDI SFP and 10G SFP.As a 3rd party OEM manufacturer, our cisco sfp transceivers are delivered to worldwide from our factory directly. All of our Cisco SFP module are tested in-house prior to shipment to guarantee that they will arrive in perfect physical and working condition.
fiber-mart.com XFP (10 Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable) is a hot-swappable optical transceiver is independent of the communication protocol, usually transmitted light wavelength is 850nm, 1310nm or 1550nm for 10G bps SONET / SDH, Fiber Channel, gigabit Ethernet, 10 gigabit Ethernet and other applications, including DWDM link. XFP contains similar SFF-8472 digital diagnostic modules, but extended to provide a powerful diagnostic tool. XFP modules use an LC fiber connector type to achieve high density.
fiber-mart.com XFP transceiver is a high performance, cost effective modules for serial optical data communications applications specified for signal rates of 10.30 Gb/s to 11.3 Gb/s. It is fully compliant to XFP MSA Rev 4.5. The XFP modules are designed for single mode fiber and operates at a nominal wavelength of 850/1310/1550 nm including DWDM XFP, CWDM XFP,BiDi XFP,10G XFP and compatible Cisco XFP, Juniper XFP, Brocade XFP. We guarantee the XFP transceivers to work in your system and all of our XFP comes with a lifetime advance replacement warranty.
SFP and XFP difference:
The 1, SFP and XFP are 10G fiber module, can communicate with each other and with other types of 10G module;
The 2, SFP is smaller than XFP module Dimensions;
The 3, Smaller SFP signal modulation function, serial / deserializer, MAC, clock and data recovery (CDR), as well as electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) function from the module to the motherboard on the card
