SFP Transceivers (Small Form Factor) This kind of transceivers (also called miniGBIC) is used in networks based on Ethernet, Sonet, SDH, Fiber Channel, CPRI, OBSAI?technologies. It was introduced to the market in 2001 as a successor of GBIC module. Compact size, low power consumption and optional optical diagnostic interface decided about popularity of those modules.
The SFP+ (Enhanced Small Form-factor Puggable) is an enhanced version of the SFP that supports data rates up to 16 Gbit/s. The SFP+ specification was first published on May 9, 2006, and version 4.1 published on July 6, 2009. SFP+ supports 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Optical Transport Network standard OTU2. It
GBIC (GigaBit Interface Converter) is used in networking devices for signal conversion between electrical and optical form. During 1996-2001 It was widely used in Ethernet and FibreChannel based networks, currently designed devices do not use this kind of optical modules (because of bulky size of GBICs). In 2001 newer version with smaller dimensions was introduced?
The XFP specification was developed by the XFP Multi Source Agreement Group. It is an informal agreement of an industry group, not officially endorsed by any standards body. The first preliminary specification was published on March 27, 2002. The first public release was on July 19, 2002. It was adopted on March 3, 2003, and
The Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for data communications applications. It interfaces networking hardware to a fiber optic cable or active or passive electrical copper connection. It is an industry format jointly developed and supported by many network component vendors, allowing data rates from 4×10 Gbit/s. The format specification
