Bidirectional SFP Modules/Transceivers

Versitron’s bidirectional SFP modules offer cost savings, easier management, and scalable solutions that are essential for the development and maintenance of efficient, high-performance network infrastructures.

We manufacture a range of bidirectional SFP transceivers for applications supporting data transfer rates of 10/100/1000Mbps, 100Mbps, 1000Mbps, and 10Gbps. They are compatible with standard SFP slots on fiber optic network switches and media converters.

Our BiDi SFP modules come with a lifetime warranty and are available for various types of optical fiber, including Multimode SX, Multimode LX, Singlemode LX, and Singlemode ZX.

What are Bidirectional SFP Modules?

Bidirectional SFP modules are advanced optical transceivers designed to enhance network infrastructure by enabling data transmission and reception over a single optical fiber.

Unlike traditional SFP modules that require two fibers (one for sending and one for receiving data) BiDi SFP modules utilize wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) technology to achieve bidirectional communication over a single fiber.

Key Features of Bidirectional SFP Transceivers

  • Compliant with IEEE802.3u and IEEE802.3Z standards
  • All BiDi SFP transceivers are hot-pluggable
  • Flexible functioning compatibility on a port-by-port basis
  • Easy serviceability and maintenance
  • Compact and robust design for reliability
  • Compatible with single-mode and multi-mode transmission
  • Integrated with advanced SFP like SFP+, QSFP, QSFP+, etc.
  • Manufactured with MSA compatibility, therefore are compatible with several communication standards like SONIC, Gigabit Ethernet, etc.
  • Supports Digital Diagnostics Monitoring (DDM).
  • Operating temperature range of 0° - 70°C (32° - 158°F) for all BiDi SFP modules
  • LC connector support
  • Ideal for long-range networking distances up to 100km (62.13 mi.)
