SFP sockets are found in Ethernet switches, routers, firewalls and network interface cards. Storage interface cards, also called HBAs or Fibre Channel storage switches, also make use of these modules, supporting different speeds such as 2Gb, 4Gb, and 8Gb. Because of their low cost, low profile, and ability to provide a connection to different types of optical fiber, SFP provides such equipment with enhanced flexibility.
SFP is a small transceiver that plugs into the SFP port of a network switch and connects to Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet optical fiber cables at the other end. The small form-factor pluggable is a compact, pluggable transceiver. Itis used for telecommunication and data communications applications.
