Ethernet transceiver / SFP / data / data transmission
CWDM4 QSFP28 100G
For customers looking for Ethernet connections over 15 meters, Intel® Ethernet SFP+ Optics can extend the reach to 300 meters or longer. These optical modules support both short range and long range distances with 10 Gigabit Intel® Ethernet Network Adapters.
The flexibility provided through reach and range enables customers to create networking configurations that best meet the needs of their data center environment. Other installation benefits include: Smaller physical dimensions, use less power, tighter bend radius, lighter weight, and have a longer reach compared to copper media options.
Fiber optics are also more immune to harsh environmental factors. The light used for data transmission does not carry an electrical current so it cannot be impacted by electrical transmissions or radio frequency interference. And, light has a superior signal strength that is near impervious to unwanted network taps.
10 Gigabit Intel® Ethernet Network Adapters with SFP+ connectivity are also the most scalable - providing more secure connections for virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networking, and proven reliable performance. Other use cases include connecting servers to End of Row (EoR) and Top of Rack (ToR) switches.
