Businesses that work digitally and require sharing large files and amounts of data require Ethernet connections. A good Ethernet connection allows smooth and effective functioning of the business. Having an Ethernet connection also ensures that the passing of information is controlled and that there are no simultaneous transmissions from multiple systems. 10Gigabyte Ethernet (10GbE) offers connectivity options for data centers, enterprise wiring closets, and service provider transport applications.
Here are some things to know about the Cisco 10GBASE SFP modules before acquiring it for your business:
- With 10GbE, you can store single copies of business files and documents, as well as install applications onto fewer servers and still allow access to employees when they require it. You save space, power and management overhead in the process.
- The Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFPs) is a compact transceiver/ module that can be used for data communications and telecommunication. SFPs support data transfer rates up to 10 gigabytes per second.
- When choosing 10GBASE SFP modules, consider your options. Types of fiber cables used, physical interfaces and optics module form factors can vary from module to module.
The Cisco 10GBASE SFP modules:
- are one of the smallest form factors available in the market
- supports 10GBASE Ethernet
- offers interface choice flexibility
- offers capabilities for optical monitoring
- allows optical interoperability
- supports link lengths up to 26 meters on FDDI-grade MMF
- supports link lengths up to 300 meters using 2000 MHz*km MMF
