Omnitron SFPs

Omnitron SFPOmnitron’s Small Form Pluggable (SFP) and 10 Gigabit SFP+/XFP optical transceivers are interchangeable, compact media connectors. They enable a single network device to connect to a wide variety of fibre and copper cable types and distances.

Pluggable Optical Tranceivers are used to customize iConverter®, FlexPoint™, OmniConverter™ and miConverter™ products to meet specific networking protocols and media requirements. They support multimode dual fibre, single-mode dual fibre, single-mode single-fibre, Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (see the CWDM Optical Transceivers) and Unshielded Twisted Pair copper cabling.

Pluggable Optical Transceivers reduce network equipment inventories by eliminating the need to maintain surplus modules of various media types for network repairs or upgrades. They also enable network upgrades and growth by providing interchangeable fibre and copper connectors that can easily adapt to and modify any existing network. For example, a dual fibre link between two media converters can be split into two single-fibre links to connect another pair of media converters. To accommodate the new fibre configuration, dual fibre optical transceivers in the media converter can easily be replaced with single-fibre optical transceivers.

Based on the MSA SFF-8472 and INF-8077i standards, Omnitron’s Pluggable Optical Transceivers support digital diagnostic capabilities, providing enhanced diagnostic information to assist network administrators with network maintenance. When used in iConverter modules managed by SNMP management software, such as NetOutlook®, Omnitron Pluggable Optical Transceivers can collect enhanced, real time transceiver diagnostic information including fibre optic TX and RX power, voltage and transceiver temperature.

By providing compact physical size and the ease of interchangeability, Pluggable Optical Transceivers provide a cost-effective and flexible solution for network designs.
