Today I am going to talk about the hardware generally used in many of the devices for the fiber/copper connectivity with the devices in the network.
I will talk about the various kinds of modules which includes the following types
- QSFP, QSFP+, QSFP14, QSFP28
|Fig 1.1- Sample QSFP+ to SFP+ Connectivity|
Lets start with the SFP module discussion, then we will go with the SFP+, QSFP, QSFP+, XFP and then CFP modules. I will talk about the usage, Wavelength, data rate speed and so many factors which describe these modules in details. I hope with this article you will easily understand the various types of modules uses in industries now a days with the capacity and the data rate speed of these different modules.SFP
: SFP stands for small form factor pluggable, With the help of SFP you can extend the switching capability by connecting the fiber/copper cable between two devices. SFP is the way of technology to connect the devices. You can use as a Single fiber, Dual Fiber, DWDM, WDM. It can support maximum of 150 Km. SFP is based on IEEE802.3 and SFF-8472. SFP transceivers are designed to support Continue reading
