FS.COM SFP Optical Modules Solution

SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable), also known as “mini-GBIC”, is a hot-swappable transceiver that plugs into the SFP port of a network switch and connects to Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) optical fiber cables at the other end. FS SFP optical modules are available with a variety of different types to ensure your networks operate with maximum performance, reliability, and flexibility.

What kinds of custom choices are offered in FS.COM?

FS.COM offers regular custom choices such as compatibility, transmission distance, operating temperature, label pattern, label colors and etc. What's more, FS.COM welcomes any inquiry for customized products and solutions for all need and specifications.

Can FS.COM SFPs and patch cables be shipped directly from USA or Europe?

Yes. FS.COM founded a warehouse in North America and Germany. Till now, we have prepared lots of transceiver modules and patch cables in stock. As long as the products you order are all in stock, we will ship them out the same day you place your order.

Can singlemode SFPs be connected to multimode SFPs?

Singlemode and multimode SFPs can’t be connected because of the modal differences. Singlemode SFP should be connected with single mode fiber, and multimode SFP should be connected with multimode fiber.

What is Digital Optical Monitoring (DOM) feature?

DOM feature gives the end user the ability to monitor real-time parameters of the SFP, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current and transceiver supply voltage. When buy fiber optic transceiver today, you will have the option with or without DOM.
