Introduction To 10GBASE-T SFP+ Transceiver From Different Manufactures

22. november 2017 at 4:38
10GBASE-T is an Ethernet specification using a copper twisted pair connection (Cat6a or Cat7) with an effective bandwidth of 10 Gbit/s and a maximum transmission distance of up to 100 meters. Compared with other 10G optical modules, the 10GBASE-T SFP+ copper RJ45 transceiver has stable performance, you can take full advantage of the existing copper cabling. It's now becoming a hot option for equipment designers and data center professionals in building their network solution. Thus, there are many manufactures providing 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceivers, like HPE 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceiver, Cisco 10GBASE-T SFP and also FS.COM 10GBASE-T SFP+ copper transceiver. This post will introduce the characteristics of 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceiver of different manufactures respectively, and then you can choose what you want according to your budget.

HPE 10GBASE-T SFP+ Transceiver
According to HPE product specification, the HPE 10GBASE-T SFP+ Transceiver can convert a 10 Gb SFP+ port on an Hewlett Packard Enterprise switch to a 10GBase-T connection. It is specifically designed for high speed communication links that require 10 Gigabit Ethernet over Cat 6a/7 cable. This SFP+ transceiver offers 10 Gb/s communication over RJ45 copper cables. Its specification is shown as follows:
Ports10GbE SFP+ port; Duplex: full onlyInterfaceRJ45
Weight0.04 lb, fully loadedOperating temperature 32℉- 158℉(0℃-70℃)
Operating relative humidity5%-95%, noncondensingAltitude Up to 10,000 ft
Power consumption maximum2.5WCable typeCat6a/7 cable
Maximum distance30 mFiber type Copper
HPE 10GBASE-T SFP+ Transceiver
Cisco 10GBASE-T SFP+ Transceiver
The Cisco 10GBASE-T SFP is hot-swappable input/output device which allows a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port to link with a fiber optic network. Because it is hot-swappable and MSA compliant, the Cisco 10GBASE-T SFP+ copper transceiver can be plugged directly into any Cisco SFP+ based transceiver port, without the need to power down the host network system. This capability makes moves, add-ons and exchanges quick and painless. The specification of 10GBASE-T Cisco copper transceiver is as follows:

Max data rate10.3125GbpsMax transmission distance 30 m
InterfaceRJ45Cable type Cat6a/cat7
DOM supportNoOperating temperature32℉- 158℉(0℃-70℃)
FS.COM 10GBASE-T SFP+ Transceiver
The 10GBASE-T copper SFP+ transceiver FS.COM offered can convert a 10GbE SFP+ port on a switch or NIC (network interface card) to a 10GBASE-T RJ45 connection, allowing 10G bandwidth over existing copper infrastructure instead of changing to new fiber network equipment. It supports links up to 30 m over Cat6a/7 cable. Compared with an embedded 10GBASE-T RJ45 port for link distances up to 30 m, this module has been optimized to save more than 0.5 W per port. Its details are shown as follows:
Part numberSFP-10G-TForm typeSFP+
Data rate10Gbps, 5Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 1000MbpsCable distance Up to 100m*
Power consumption2.5WInterface RJ45
DOM supportNoOperating temperature32℉- 158℉(0℃-70℃)
*Note: 30 meters via 10Gbps, 50 meters via 5Gbps and 2.5Gbps, 100 meters via 1000Mbps.
Cisco sfp-10g-t-s compatible 10gbase-t sfp+
According to aforementioned, no matter HPE 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceiver, Cisco 10GBASE-T SFP+ or FS.COM 10GBASE-T SFP+ copper transceiver all share similar characteristics, like maximum power consumption, form type, interface, operating temperature and so on. But there is one thing that must differ, that is price. HPE 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceiver is charged $685.99 on official online store, Cisco Compatible 10 Gigabit RJ45 Copper SFP+ Prolabs transceiver module is about $395 on ebay and 10Gtek charges that for $339.99, while FS.COM 10GBASE-T SFP+ copper transceiver only costs $280, which is much lower.

FS.COM now provides compatible 10GBASE-T copper SFP+ transceivers as a new optional solution for your network architecture. Customized service is available for a specific brand compatible copper SFP+ module to your requirements. You can check all the 10GBase-t SFP+ transceiver on its official website.
