SFP+ tranceiver (Small Form Factor Pluggable) is a 10 Gigabit hot plug, independent of the communication protocol of optical transceiver,
usually transmitted light wavelength is 850 nm, 1310 nm and 1550 nm, used for 10G BPS SONET/SDH, fibre channel, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet,
and other applications, including DWDM link. XFP contain similar to SFF – 8472 digital diagnosis module, but extends, provides a powerful diagnostic tool.
SFP+ transceiver advantages:
1, the SFP + than X2 and XFP encapsulation more compact dimensions (the same as the size of SFP);
2, can be and the same type of XFP, X2, XENPAK direct connection;
3, cost than XFP, X2, XENPAK products is low.
