SFP module stands for Small Form-Factor Pluggable module. These fiber SFP modules are used to connect networking equipment and fiber optic cable. They feature compact construction and are hot-pluggable devices, therefore they are known as small form-factor pluggable optical modules. They are also called as mini-GBIC (Gigabit Interface Converter).
SFP transceivers feature various specifications, therefore, they can be used for several customized networking requirements. According to network infrastructure and specifications of SFP fiber modules, they enable data transmission from 500m to 80km at different data transmission rates from 10 MBPS to 40 GBPS.
VERSITRON is a prominent supplier of premium quality SFP modules, SFP transceivers, Single Mode SFP, Multi-mode SFP, etc. Depending on the requirements, we supply SFP+, QSFP, and QSFP+ transceivers.
SFP GBIC modules operate on a copper cable or fiber optic cable connection. It enables easy data transfer between cable and the networking device via fiber or copper. Therefore, SFP modules are also referred to as fiber and copper SFP transceivers.
Different SFP fiber modules work at different wavelengths. Each SFP transceiver features a laser that operates between the transmitting side (TX) and the receiving side (RX). SFP fiber modules demand compatibility with various communication standards, especially the Multi-Source Agreement (MSA). Therefore, according to the SFP modules compatibility matrix, they are manufactured to function with communication standards like SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, etc.
All SFP fiber modules manufactured by VERSITRON are Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) compliant. This assures their compatibility with international standards.
SFP ports, otherwise known as SFP slots, are the socket locations to insert SFP transceivers into devices such as Ethernet, Industrial, and PoE switches and media converters as well as routers. SFP ports are only activated when an SFP transceiver module is installed and data is being transmitted.
SFP ports allow for a seamless connection between fiber optic cable and networking devices. SFP Ports are used as gigabit interface modules to connect two ethernet switches to each other. All of VERSITRON’s fiber optic switches with SFP compatibility feature a minimum of 2 SFP ports to support a wide range of connectivity. Our SFP switches can be used for various types of networks such as star-based network topology, inter-office, etc.
VERSITRON is a supplier of various types of fiber and copper SFP transceivers. Our most common SFP modules include:
**Please see below for the complete list of our SFP transceivers**
All the mentioned SFP transceivers are compliant with MFA and are offered with a lifetime product warranty.
Fiber and copper SFP transceivers offered by VERSITRON standout due to the following beneficial features that they provide:
Advanced SFP is basically an upgraded version of standard SFP. Namely, SFP+, QSFP are the upgraded versions of SFP modules available in the market and generally referred to as advanced SFP.
To differentiate between regular SFP and advanced SFP, only advancements in SFP fiber modules are noted.
SFP+ is a functionally faster and precise version of SFP. SFP+ enables 10 Gbps data transmission speed at a shorter distance as compared to SFP.
Further, the quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP) module is an advanced version of SFP. It features a wide range of supported channels like SONET, Fiber Channel, etc. QSFP also features to 100 Gbps data transmission speed. This speed range and channel support make QSFP a powerful upgrade to SFP.
SFP and GBIC both are hot-pluggable input/output network connectivity devices. Both offer similar functions but in a different range of form factors. SFP functions exactly similar to GBIC but is a smaller form factor. GBIC is commonly used for establishing connectivity within Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channels but it still supports a wide range of connectivity with Fast Ethernet (FE), BIDI, CWDM, etc. However, SFP was introduced after GBIC. It is designed for compatibility with communication standards such as SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, etc. via LC connector.
Our SFP GBIC modules are suitable for several applications. Some industrial applications of our SFP GBIC modules are as follows:
