Oct. 24, 2010 - PRLog -- 1. What is a GBIC?

Giga Bitrate Interface Converter GBIC is an abbreviation, is the gigabit optical signal into electrical signal interface devices. GBIC is designed for hot use. GBIC is an international standard interchangeable products. With GBIC Gigabit switch interface design flexibility as interchangeable in the market account for a large market share.

2. What is SFP?

SMALL FORM PLUGGABLE SFP is an abbreviation, simply understood as an upgraded version of GBIC. SFP GBIC module module volume ratio reduced by half, the same panel can be configured more than double the number of ports. SFP Module GBIC same basic and other features. Some switch vendors said the SFP module is small GBIC (MINI-GBIC). SFP Module GBIC same basic and other features.

Regular contact with people who are not likely to fiber GBIC and SFP modules mistake fiber optic connector is the same, they do not. SFP+ Cisco SFP SFP Plus
LC SFP fiber optic connector module connected,SFP+ and then the SC GBIC fiber optic connector.

New fly-pass optical light today at the China International Fair (CIOE 2010) released new lines on the SFP transceiver module compact (C-SFP), the product of two Fast (100Mbps) or Gigabit (1Gbps) single fiber bi-directional transceiver module integrated in a standard SFP package. Flying through the new C-SFP optical compact and low-power design helps system vendors to access network line card port density doubled, while effectively doubling the number of access channels. Compact new line of SFP module enhancements for the new optical access network to fly through the central office (CO) and client (CPE) of the single-fiber bidirectional module product line.

C-SFP SFP Plus transceiver module integrates in one of two independent single-fiber bidirectional transceiver module, provides two LC connectors. C-SFP transceiver module with the normal pin compatible SFP transceiver module package, the operation of its monitoring function enables the system fault bit when detected early and reduce downtime. Support the new fly-pass optical Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet C-SFP module, transmission distance of 10 km and 20 km, commercial-grade operating temperature (0-70 ℃) and industrial (-40 ℃ - +85 ℃).

New fly-pass optical America President and CEO of NeoPhotonics Corporation, Tim Jenks said: As more and more of the fiber needs to connect to the existing telecommunications infrastructure, so that the available space within the telecommunications cabinet is particularly valuable. New fly-pass optical single fiber bi-directional transceivers have reduced the number of fiber need to be configured, and now we have the C-SFP can make a customer's existing rack space, double the number of lines.

Optical will fly through the new Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center September 6 to 9 of the display booth CIOE 522 Compact new line of SFP transceiver modules, and more on display over the same period of active optical transceiver modules and integrated circuits based on photonic (PIC) technology, passive products.
