As telecom technology advances in the past few decades, the size of transceiver modules has become smaller and smaller. Meanwhile, the rate of optical transceiver also becomes faster and faster, for it is ranging from 1.25 G, 2.5 G, 4 G to 10G, 40G and 100G, etc. However, when it comes to 10G, people found that the encapsulation is too small to keep many components. Thus, XFP modules were launched in 2002 as a new standard to solve this problem. Next, this article will introduce the 10G XFP optical transceivers in great details.

Introduction of XFP Transceiver

In fact, XFP is not the first 10G transceiver in the market. The 10G transceiver market has gone through 300Pin and XENPAK/XPAK/X2 before XFP came out. As these types of...

In order to cut down the costs on the expensive SFP transceiver modules, many users are seeking for a compatible SFP to use. For example, if your network contains HP routers, firewalls, and switches, you might think that only HP SFP branded transceivers will ensure your equipment functions optimally. However, that seemingly reasonable assumption could cost your company thousands of dollars. Compared to the compatible SFP transceiver produced by third-party companies, HP SFP transceiver comes with dramatically inflated price tags while a third-party compatible one is roughly 80 percent less expensive than HP branded SFP transceiver. Although price isn't everything, it's important to know that you're getting your money's worth. That calls...
