An SFP +, or a Small form-Factor Pluggable Plus, is a standardised form factor for fibre optic transceivers. Typically, an SFP + is used in datacom and telecom optical links, when used in this format they provide a smaller footprint and consume lower levels of power when compared with XFP transceivers. The initial standard applications of SFP+ focussed primarily on 8G Fibre Channel, 10G Ethernet and 10G Fibre Channel. In this setting the electrical interface to the host board is a standardized serial interface known as a SFI. Over time the applications have expanded, now incorporating SONET OC-192, OTN G.709, 16G Fibre Channel, CPRI wireless, SDH STM-64, and recently the newly emergent 32G Fibre Channel application.
We stock a wide range of compatible SFP + products, available in a number of specification options enabling you to select the optimum model to meet your network and hardware requirements. Compatible SFP + products were initially introduced to provide users with an alternative to branded SFP + products from globally leading manufacturers such as Cisco. Compatible SFP + products owe their popularity to their ability to be utilised in conjunction with vendor switches or transceiver modules to the same high quality as their branded counterparts whilst being available for a fraction of the price.
