  4. 4. THE DRIVER BEHIND GBICSTANDARDIZE A SWAPPABLE MODULE WITH MULTIPLE INTERFACE OPTIONS
  5. 5. THE DRIVER BEHIND GBIC STANDARDIZE A SWAPPABLE MODULE WITH MULTIPLE INTERFACE OPTIONS• GBIC PORT CAN SUPPORT A WIDE RANGE OF PHYSICAL MEDIA – (COPPER, OPTICAL, MM, SM)• FLEXIBILITY• PURCHASE AS NEEDED, NOT IN ADVANCE• SPECIFIC TYPE FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS• LOWERED THE COST OF THE BASE SYSTEM• GIVES THE ADMINISTRATOR FAR MORE FLEXIBILITY
  6. 6. SFF FOLLOWED SHORTLY AFTER• SFF transceivers are designed to support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and other communications standards• 850nm/1310nm/1550nm/CWDM/DWDM• Multimode / Singlemode support• Not Pluggable like GBIC
  7. 7. SFP (SMALL FORM-FACTOR PLUGGABLE )• Introduced as a viable product around 2001• Hot swappable like GBIC• Multimode / Singlemode support• 850nm/1310nm/1550nm/CWDM/DWDM• “Lock In” capability• DDM (digital diagnostic monitoring)
  8. 8. XFP (10GB FORM-FACTOR PLUGGABLE )• Introduced in 2002/2003• Hot swappable like GBIC• Main design purpose was to increase data capacity on a per channel• Multimode / Singlemode support• 850nm/1310nm/1550nm/CWDM/DWDM• Max +10Gb/s
  9. 9. SFP+ (ADVANCED SMALL FORM-FACTOR PLUGGABLE )• Introduced in 2009• SAME FORM FACTOR AS SFP• Hot swappable feature• Max +10Gb/s• Multimode / Singlemode support• 850nm/1310nm/1550nm/CWDM/DWDM• Smaller form factor than the XFP with same data capacity

  11. 11. PRESENT DAY MODULESModern day SFP’s offer a variety of interfaces in a compact form factor
  12. 12. PRESENT DAY MODULES• The SFP is still a widely used form factor in the telecommunication and Datacomm industries• SFP’s have also been integrated into broadcast, military, government, and security sectors• SFP’s are now common in the broadcast sector• XFP modules are used for higher data rate platforms• SFP+ offers the flexibility and capacity
  13. 13. SPECIFICALLY FOR BROADCAST• Routers• Modular solutions• Stand alone solutions• Rack-mountable platforms• Servers• Conversion products

  16. 16. THE SFP ADVANTAGE The concepts introduced in the telecommunication industry have migrated into the broadcast world• Greater port density, less rack space• Future proof platforms• Flexibility (SDI, NTSC/PAL, IP, Fiber )• Guaranteed performance on a port by port basis• Reduced down time for critical operations• Build as you go (coax/fiber/IP/other)
