How to choose the right SFP+ module?

The SFP+module is currently the mainstream transmission carrier in the optical fiber communication market. It can connect the device motherboard to other devices and the data rate is 10G. The SFP+ module is the smallest and most suitable for high-density port applications and is now the most popular 10G optical module.The function of the SFP+module is photoelectric conversion, which is used for the carrier transmitted between the switch and the device. The transmitting end converts the electrical signal into an optical signal, and after transmitting through the optical fiber, the receiving end converts the optical signal into an electrical signal. SFP+module are more efficient and safer than transceivers.

SFP is also known as a small GBIC, and support Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET), Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and other communication standards. Due to its small size, SFP+module are increasingly used in telecommunications and data communications. So how do you choose the right SFP+module?

1. Determine the required transmission distance

SFP+ optical modules have different transmission distances of 150m, 300m, 10km, 40km, etc. You can select the appropriate SFP+ module according to the actual application.

2. Determine wavelength limits or requirements

Different types of SFP+ modules can meet different wavelength requirements, and generally have a label on the top, bottom or side of the SFP+ module. The label will explain the basic information of this optical module, so that you can identify and select the appropriate optical module.
