There is a broad range of Industry compliant SFP+, Xenpak, X2 and XFP modules for 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments. 10GBASE SFP+ modules(Cisco SFP 10G SR, LR, ER, ZR) offer customers a wide variety of 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options for data center, enterprise wiring closet, and service provider transport applications. Xenpaks(XENPAK SR, LR, ER, ZR) are supported on Cisco routers and some Catalyst switches. The small form factor X2s(X2 SR, LR, ER, ZR) are supported on the Cisco Catalyst Switches. XFPs(XFP SR, LR, ER, ZR) are supported on Cisco routers with Shared Port Adapter (SPA).They provide customers a dual-rate interface for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Packet-over-SONET/SDH (POS) connectivity.
For instance, the SFP+ is available for the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series and Cisco Nexus 5000 Series. The new transceiver is expected to propagate across the Cisco Catalyst 6000 Series Switches, including incorporation in new line cards for the Cisco Catalyst 6500, as well as to the next-generation Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series and Cisco Catalyst 3000 Series Switches. The Catalyst 3560-X switch supports the SFP+ module patch cable, a 0.5-meter, copper, passive cable with SFP+ module connectors at each end. The patch cable connects two Catalyst 3560-X switches in a cascaded configuration. The Cisco SFP-10G-SR module supports a link length of 26m on standard Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI)-grade multimode fiber (MMF). Using 2000MHz*km MMF (OM3), up to 300m link lengths are possible. Using 4700MHz*km MMF (OM4), up to 400m link lengths are possible.
Research for Cisco SFP-10G-SR compatibility is important. If we kown the compatibility of this module well, it can improve its performance on Cisco switches. The 10G SFP+ is an upgraded version of SFP (Mini-GBIC) optical module. Comparing with the other form optical transceiver module, SFP+ (SFP plus) has higher datarates than SFP module, but smaller size than XFP, X2 and Xenpak modules. Cisco SFP 10G SR is 10GBase SR compliant and work at 850nm, it is in standards SFP+ package to plug into the ports or slots on Cisco equipment, optical interface is duplex LC connector.
