More about 10G SFP+ Optical Transceivers

Before we talk more about 10G SFP+ optical transceiver, let’s have a glimpse of 10G optical transceiver types.

10G Optical Transceiver Package:

  • SFP+
  • XFP
  • X2
  • XENPAK

Among them,  X2 and XENPANK are almost obsolete, SFP+ is the most widely-used 10G optical transceiver nowadays.

  • Data Rate:

As we all know, 10G in 10G SFP+ optical transceiver is a general term. In fact, it supports 9.95Gb/s to 11.3Gb/s bit rates. In different application environment, the exact data rate is different, look as below:

  • Protocol
  • 10G Ethernet
  • 10G Fiber Channel
  • SONET/SDH
  • CPRI
  • Data Rate
  • 11.3Gb/s
  • 10.5Gb/s
  • 9.95Gb/s
  • 9.8Gb/s
  • Transmission Distance

SH Link 10G SFP+ Optical Transceivers support transmission distance from 300m up to 100km, the transmission distance has much connection with the laser and optical fiber it adopts.

  • Laser

Tx Laser: VCSEL, FP, DFB, EML

Rx Laser: PIN, APD

Generally, VCSEL is used in multimode optical transceivers and short range transmission, FP/DFB/EML is for single mode optical transceivers and long reach.

You can get full product list from this page: 10G SFP+ optical transceivers.

A small but very useful tip for you: besides the product label, you can also get some from the color of ring-pull on the optical transceivers. Usually, Black or dark grey is SR, Blue is LR, Red is ER, and Green is ZR. For CWDM/DWDM SFP+ optical transceivers, different wavelength has different colors.
