Operability Guarantee

SFP Modules are a comprehensive range of Hot Swappable Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) Transceivers and related equipment, built and tested to operate with mainstream vendor hardware. Manufactured in the same international laboratories and ISO 9001 / 14001 facilities as used by the big brands, all products are designed to comply with European Regulations and conform to the MSA Standard (Multi-Source Agreement) guaranteeing quality and operability.

The MSA Standard enforces that only the above seven types of SFP Transceivers can be used by any vendor, opening the market to alternative branded products. Many big name vendors perpetuate the myth that paying a higher cost for branded SFP products ensures a greater level of performance, dependability and longevity. However this is simply not true, with alternative suppliers often providing lower failure rates than their branded counterparts, supported by more robust warranties.
