SFP +, (10 Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable) is a hot-swappable, independent communication protocol optical transceiver, usually the wavelength of the transmission of light is 850nm, 1310nm or 1550nm, for 10G bps SONET / SDH, fiber Channel, gigabit Ethernet, 10 gigabit Ethernet and other applications, SFP+ including DWDM links. The XFP contains a digital diagnostic module similar to SFF-8472, but has been extended to provide a powerful diagnostic tool.
SFP + supports SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and some other communication standards. This standard extends to SFP + and supports 10.0 Gbit / s transfer rates, SFP+ including 8 gigabit Fiber Channel and 10GbE. The SFP + module version of the fiber and copper core versions, compared to the Xenpak, X2 or xfp version of the module, the SFP + module will be part of the circuit to stay on the motherboard implementation, rather than within the module
SFP + Advantages:
1, SFP + has a more compact form factor (same size as SFP) than X2 and XFP packages;
2, and the same type of XFP, X2, XENPAK direct connection;
3, the cost is lower than XFP, X2, XENPAK products.
SFP + is a new generation of 10 Gigabit optical module, which in accordance with the ANSI T11 protocol, to meet the Fiber Channel 8.5G and Ethernet 10G applications. SFP + is about 30% smaller than the earlier XFP optical module, and is the same as the conventional 1-4G SFP optical module. SFP + only retains the basic electro-optical, SFP+ photoelectric conversion function, reducing the original XFP design SerDes, CDR, EDC, MAC and other signal control functions, thus simplifying the 10G optical module design, power consumption and thus smaller. SFP + has the advantages of high density, low power consumption, lower system construction cost and so on. SFP+ The product is widely used in the field of 10 Gigabit Ethernet optical fiber data communication, which is the mainstream product of 10GU module. F-tone can create a full range of 10G SFP +, including:
SFP + 10GBASE-SR 300 m (multimode OM3 fiber);
SFP + 10GBASE-LRM multimode fiber 220 meters;
SFP + 10GBASE-LR single-mode fiber 10-20 km;
SFP + 10GBASE-ER single-mode fiber 40 km;
SFP + 10GBASE-ZR single-mode fiber 80 km;
SFP + 10GBASE-EZR single-mode fiber 120 km;
18 band CWDM SFP +;
40-band DWDM SFP +;
