Optics Transceivers Explained: The Complete Guide to QSFP and SFP Modules


Introduction: what is optic transceiver

An optic transceiver is an optical device which converts electrical signal to optical signal or vice versa. There are two types of optic transceivers: transmitter and receiver. Transmitter converts the electrical signal into light, while receiver converts light back to electric signal.

The development of optic module has been a key factor in the growth of the field of optics. There have been many advancements in optics module development over time. There are various types of optic transceivers: GBIC, XFP, CFP, SFP and QSFP. The most common modules on the market are SFP and QSFP modules. The difference between them is in the size of the package, where SFPs are smaller in size than QSFPs.

Types of Optical Fiber Modules in the Market Today

There are many different types of optical fiber modules on the market today. The most common types of modules are SFP, QSFP, and QSFP+. 40G module is the most popular type of module for long-distance transmission lines. 10G module is more commonly used for shorter distances or for use with higher-speed optical fiber cables. 100G module is also popular due to its high speed and low power consumption. Lastly, 400G module has been developed recently to meet the demand for even faster data rates in telecommunications networks. Optical fiber modules have become an integral part of the telecommunications industry. They are used in a variety of applications, and they are available in different types and speeds.

SFP+ transceiver module Overview

The SFP+ transceiver module is a small form-factor pluggable (SFP) device that provides 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, or Serial RapidIO data rates over fiber optic cabling.

The SFP+ transceiver module is used in data centers and campus networks. It can be installed in both horizontal cabling and vertical cabling.

The SFP+ 10GBASE-SR is a cost-effective, high-performance optical device for short reach applications with distances up to 300 meters. It provides 10Gbps data transmission speeds and can be used in data centers and campus networks. It is equipped with an LC duplex interface, which can be connected to MMF fiber patch cables, such as OM2/OM3/OM4.Its price is very competitive, and it is often used as the optical module of the access layer switch in the network structure.

The SFTP-10G-LR is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) over fiber optic cable with a link length of up to 10 km. It is designed for campus networks and can also be used as a backbone for long haul networks.

The SFTP-10G-LR operates on the standard SFP+ connector, which is compatible with most other 10 GbE products.
