An Introduction Of SFP Transceivers
March 12,2016 12:59:53

The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. The SFP transceiver contains a PCB that mates with the SFP electrical connector in the host system.
The form factor and electrical interface are specified by a multi-source agreement (MSA). It interfaces a network device motherboard (for a switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a fiber optic or copper networking cable. It is a popular industry format jointly developed and supported by many network component vendors.
ETU-Link technology Co., LTD as a optical transceiver manufacture offer good quality , excellent service and compatitive price to difference country customer. We supply Juniper Gigabit Bidi SFP transceiver for you! 
SFP transceivers are designed to support SDH,SONETgigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and other communications standards. Due to its smaller size, SFP obsolesces the formerly ubiquitous gigabit interface converter (GBIC); the SFP is sometimes referred to as a Mini-GBIC although no device with this name has ever been defined in the MSA.
The optical trnasceiver including differenct package, such as SFP, BIDI SFP , SFP CWDM,SFP DWDMSFP+ , SFP+ BIDI, SFP+ CWDM, SFP+ DWDM, XFP, XFP BIDI, XFP CWDM, XFP DWDM, COPPER-T, GBIC, XENPAK, X2,40G QSFP+, 100G QSFP+28 SR4/LR4,100G CFP2 SR4/LR4,100G CFP4 and so on.
SFP transceivers are available with a variety of transmitter and receiver types, link to multi-mode fiber or single-mode fiber.
It content some common types, eg:
For multi-mode fiber, with black or beige extraction lever
SX - 850nm, for a maximum transit distance about 550m at 1.25 Gbit/s (gigabit Ethernet) or 150m at 4.25 Gbit/s (Fibre Channel)
For single-mode fiber, with blue extraction lever
LX - 1310nm, for distances up to 10km
LHX - 1310nm, for distances up to 40km 
ZX - 1550nm, for distances up to 80 km, with green extraction lever (see GLC-ZX-SM1) 
EZX - 1550nm, for distances up to 160 km 
BX - 1490nm/1310nm, Single Fiber Bi-Directional Gigabit SFP Transceivers, paired as BX-U and BX-D for Uplink and Downlink respectively, also for distances up to 10km. Variations of bidirectional SFPs are also manufactured which use 1550nm in one direction. 1550nm 40km (XD), 80km (ZX), 120km (EX or EZX)
SFSW – Single Fiber Single Wavelength transceivers, for bi-directional traffic on a single fiber. Coupled with CWDM, these double the traffic density of fiber links.
CWDM and DWDM transceivers at various wavelengths achieving various maximum distances
These products are more and more applicate on telecom network, so it caues many business for this industry, so we will invest more capital make sure our product keep steady quality and develop more new products.
