What does the GE SFP LC connector SX transceiver on the Cisco switch mean
From the model point of view on the label, the “GE” refers to the Gigabit Ethernet; “SFP LC connector” means that this Cisco switch supports the SFP transceiver with LC interface; and “SX” says that this SFP transceiver should be the short transmission distance multi-mode fiber optic transceiver.
If you would like to buy the related fiber optic transceiver for your switches, it will convenient for you to choose the suitable module according to this knowledge.
SOPTO supplies fiber optic transceivers like “GE SFP LC connector SX transceiver”, which are compatible with Cisco and other brands. Any demand, please feel free to contact.
Installation of Fiber Optic Transceiver ModuleNecessary tools: ESD-preventive wrist strapTake the SFP module as an example. Complete these steps in order to install a SFP transceiver:1. Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap to your wrist and to the ESD ground connector or a bare metal surface on your chassis.2. Remove the SFP Transceiver Module from its protective packaging.3. Check the label on the SFP transceiver body to verify that you have the correct model for your network.4. Find the send (TX) and receive (RX) markings that identify the top side of the SFP transceiver.5. Position the SFP transceiver in front of the socket opening.6. Insert the SFP transceiver into the
Project of cleaning the fiber optic transceiver module1. The optical Interface: Use the dust cap to protect the interface2. The body: Use alcohol and professional cloth to clean the body of fiber optic transceiver Benefits and significance of regularly checking the optical modules:1. Extend the service life of the optical module2. Reduce the occurrence of network failure3. Improve network performance4. Reduce maintenance and replacement cost Mistake and taboos of regularly checking the optical module1. The detection frequency shouldn't be too frequent within short period of time.2. Can't direct touch the optical module by hand. We should wear anti-static gloves,
The fiber optic transceiver module is one of the connection modules, which realizes the conversion between the optical signal and the electrical signal. The fiber optic transceiver module is mainly composed by optoelectronic devices, functional circuitry and optical interface, in which the optoelectronic devices includes transmitting and receiving two parts. The fiber optical module was first produced in 1999; and the earliest fiber optical module is 1X9 package with SC connector, directly solidified in the communications equipment on the circuit board, as a fixed optical modules. After that, 1X9 optical modules are gradually toward miniaturization, hot-swappable direction. Optical
