The Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX is an optical module used for optical fiber communications and is used to transmit data at Gigabit (1 Gbps) rate. It uses multi-mode optical fiber as the transmission medium and transmits data through optical signals. Multimode fiber is an optical fiber that has a relatively large core diameter, usually 50 microns or 62.5 microns. Therefore, multimode optical fiber and multimode transceiver can transmit signals of multiple optical modes. The optical signals propagate in different paths within the fiber core, resulting in diversified transmission modes of the transmitted optical pulses.


Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX is commonly used in shorter-distance data transmission scenarios, such as local area networks (LAN), enterprise networks and data center internal interconnections. It usually uses a multimode laser (VCSEL) as the light source to transmit data to the target device through multimode optical fiber.


The interface of the Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX is LC (Lucent Connector). Their connection and transmission distance to multimode fiber is generally effective within a few hundred meters. It should be noted that the Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX corresponds to the Gigabit single-mode optical module. The latter uses single-mode optical fiber for data transmission and is suitable for application scenarios with long-distance transmission and high bandwidth requirements. 


In summary, the features of the Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX are as follows:


1. Transmission rate: The Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX supports a transmission rate of 1 Gbps (gigabit per second) and can provide large-capacity data transmission.


2. Multi-mode optical fiber: Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX uses multi-mode optical fiber for transmission, which is suitable for short-distance transmission and is usually effective within a few hundred meters.


3. Cost-effectiveness: Compared with high-rate optical modules, the cost of Gigabit multi-mode optical modules SFP-GE-SX is usually lower and is an economical choice.


4. Scope of application: Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX is suitable for shorter distance data transmission scenarios, such as local area networks (LAN), enterprise internal networks, data center internal interconnections, etc.


5. Compatibility: The Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX is compatible with a variety of devices and can be connected to network devices of different manufacturers and models, and can be connected through different types of interfaces.


6. Low-cost optical fiber: Compared with single-mode optical fiber, the cost of multi-mode optical fiber is lower, which reduces the construction cost of optical fiber.


The application fields of Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX mainly include: local area network (LAN) connections, enterprise networks, internal interconnection of data centers, video surveillance systems, smart building networks and other short-distance, large-capacity data transmission scenarios . Devices connected through Gigabit multi-mode optical modules include switches, routers, servers, storage devices, etc. It should be noted that the transmission distance of the Gigabit multi-mode optical module SFP-GE-SX is relatively short and is not suitable for long-distance data transmission requirements. When selecting a specific Gigabit multimode optical module, you can choose based on the compatibility of the equipment and the specific needs of the project.
