1000BASE SFP transceiver is a device that interfaces a network device motherboard to a fiber optic or copper networking cable. It is designed to support Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and other communications standards. It can be intermixed in combinations of IEEE 802.3z- compliant 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX/LH, or 1000BASE-ZX interfaces on a port-by-port basis. Here are the most common types of 1000BASE SFP transceiver modules.

1000BASE-LX SFP Transceiver

LX stands for long wavelength. 1000BASE-LX is a physical layer specification for Gigabit Ethernet over fiber optic cabling as defined in 802.3z. 1000BASE-LX SFP transceiver uses long wavelength laser (1310 nm) over multi-mode and single-mode fiber. It is compatible with the IEEE...
