Introduction to SFP+ Transceiver

In the 10 Gigabit Ethernet world, fiber optical transceivers have been developed along the way to meet the increasing usage and demand for higher-performance servers, storage and interconnects. The small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) can be referred to as an enhanced version of the SFP that supports data rates up to 16 Gbit/s. SFP+ supports 8Gbit/s Fiber Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Optical Transport Network standard OTU2. It is a popular industry format supported by many network component vendors. In order to ensure the high performance of the SFP+ transceivers, one critical point is to deal with the testing issues of them. This article will first illustrate the SFP+ testing challenges in...
