FiberStore Provides a Complete Range of SFP+ Transceivers

Fiberstore provides various kinds of optical communication products which are compliant with standards including Fast Ethernet (FE), Gigabit Ethernet (GE), 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), Fibre Channel (FC), SONET/SDH and WDM and operate at data rates from 100M to 100G for data-center, HPC (High-Performance Computing), access, metro-regional, wireless, and long haul net-works. They feature outstanding performance over extended voltage and temperature ranges, while minimizing jitter, elzectromagnetic interference (EMI) and power dissipation.  This post focus on introducing Fiberstore SFP+ modules such as 10G SFP+, 8G SFP+, CWDM /DWDM SFP+, BIDI SFP+, Dual-Rate SFP+, etc.

SFP+ (enhanced small form-factor pluggable) is a standardized form factor for fiber optic transceivers and is used in datacom and telecom optical links, offering a smaller footprint and lower power consumption than XFP transceivers for 10G applications. SFP+ transceivers are designed to be hot-swappable in industry-standard cages andconnectors, and offer high-speed performance in a compact package. As known that SFP was the first standardized form factor in this family, and has been used for data rates up to 4G. Then, with the need forcompact transceivers at high data rates, an enhanced version named SFP+ was developed for applications up to 10G and beyond. SFP+ transceivers are interchangeable with SFP transceivers and can be used in the same cages as SFP transceivers because of their same shape as SFP modules. What’s more, the electrical interface to the host board for SFP and SFP+ modules is a serial interface.


SFP+ transceivers’ initial standard applications focused on 8G FC, 10GbE and 10G FC, where the electrical interface to the host board is a standardized serial interface called SFI. Then, the applications have expanded to include SONET OC-192, SDH STM-64, OTN G.709, CPRI wireless, 16G FC, and the emerging 32G FC application.


SFP+ comes in 4 different versions: SR, LR, ER and ZR. Apart from the regular 10G SFP+ transceivers, FiberStore also provides the whole CWDM/DWDM spectrum for 10G SFP+. The SFP+ is also available as a BIDI optic, which has only one LC plus and will work on one single strand of single-mode fiber (SMF). SFP+ modules come with digital diagnostics monitoring (DDM) functions, which provide network managers with a highly accurate, cost-effective tool for implementing reliable performance monitoring. Let’s talk about the kinds of our SFP+ transceivers.


According to the brands, our SFP+ transceivers are divided into two big parts: compatible SFP+ and custom SFP+. FiberStore manufactures a complete range of compatible SFP+ transceivers, such as SFP+ SR, SFP+ LR, SFP+ LRM, SFP+ ER, SFP+ ZR, CWDM SFP+, DWDM SFP+, BiDi SFP+, and compatible Cisco SFP+, HP SFP+, Juniper SFP+, Netgear SFP+ etc.. The custom SFP+ transceivers can be any type up to the customers’ requirements and own the brand labeling of FiberStore.

According the different parameters and applications, our SFP+ transceivers include regular 10G SFP+, 8G SFP+, CWDM SFP+, DWDM SFP+, BIDI SFP+, 16G SFP+, Dual-Rate 1/10G SFP+ and SDH/SONET SFP+. Here are some features of them.
