The working principle and classification of Gigabit optical modules and 10 Gigabit optical modules


Working principle


An optical module is a photoelectric conversion device. It consists of two parts: the sending end and the receiving end. The sending end converts electrical signals into optical signals and transmits them through optical fibers, and the receiving end converts optical signals into electrical signals through photoelectric conversion.


SFP optical module classification


There are many different models of SFP optical modules, some common SFP optical module models are listed below:


1000BASE-SX


SFP module for multimode optical fiber transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 550 meters.


1000BASE-LX


SFP module for single-mode optical fiber transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 10 kilometers.


1000BASE-ZX


SFP module for single-mode optical fiber transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 80 kilometers or more.


BIDI (Bi-Directional) SFP


This SFP module uses a single fiber for bidirectional transmission, including two different channels of TX and RX.


CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) SFP


This SFP module uses multiple different wavelengths to achieve optical fiber transmission, which can achieve higher bandwidth and transmission distance.


DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) SFP


This SFP module uses higher density wavelengths for optical fiber transmission, which can achieve higher bandwidth and transmission distance.


SFP+ optical module classification:


SFP+ optical module is a high-speed small hot-swappable optical module for 10G Ethernet and optical fiber communication. The following are some common SFP+ optical module models:


10GBASE-SR


Used for multimode optical fiber transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 300 meters.


10GBASE-LR


Used for single-mode optical fiber transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 10 kilometers.


10GBASE-ER


Used for single-mode optical fiber transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 40 kilometers.


10GBASE-T


Used for copper cable transmission, supporting a maximum transmission distance of 100 meters.


CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) SFP+


This SFP+ module uses multiple different wavelengths to achieve optical fiber transmission, which can achieve higher bandwidth and transmission distance.


DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) SFP+


This SFP+ module uses higher density wavelengths for optical fiber transmission, which can achieve higher bandwidth and transmission distance.


It should be noted that the above only lists some common SFP and SFP+ optical module models, and there are other models and standards in the actual market. When selecting an optical module, the appropriate optical module model should be selected according to the specific network requirements and equipment compatibility requirements.
