Everything to know about SFP media converter

Introduction

A device which helps in connecting several networking devices which are non-compatible with each other due to various reasons such as having different speeds and bandwidths is known as a media converter. They help in conversion of twisted copper pair cables to much more efficient optical fibre which drastically improves the performances of the devices. These media converters can also be used to convert between different optical fibres. One such example is the conversion of multi mode optical fibre into a single mode optical fibre. It can be used in cases where it is not feasible to purchase or manufacture a completely new device working with optical fibre. Already existing machines or devices which may have other cables such as copper can be upgraded to using optical fibre for much more enhanced experience.

SFP media converters

For various internet protocol (IP) applications, the type of media converters used are known as Small form SFP Slot Media Converterfactor pluggable media converters or SFP media converter. A SFP converter can help in providing a way to connect different types of devices such as a machine using copper cable to an SFP fibre (single mode optical fibre or multi mode optical fibre). They are quite affordable compared to the significant result they produce. This device helps in improving the output of the device by helping to increase the distance of data transmission, bandwidth and network speeds by a lot. It also helps in increasing the life span of a device which does not have optical fibre cables and also it helps in providing a link for communication between devices which are a large distance apart from each other. One of the important results of the SFP media converter is that it helps in Gigabit Ethernet technology or transmission in relation to the SFP optics. Gigabit Ethernet consists of those technologies which help in sending Ethernet frames at a very high speed of 1 gigabit every second. This is a considerable improvement in the transmission speed than the previous Fast Ethernet (100 mega bits per second).

Types of SFP media converters

A SFP media converter can be available in several different variants such as the 10/100M data rate variant or the 10/100/1000M data rate variant. These converters can have support of up to 1024 media access control (MAC) addresses and also both half duplex mode as well as full duplex mode.

Advantages of SFP media converters

  • Using a SFP media converter has a large range of advantages. Some of these advantages are: Improves the performance of several devices which use backdated copper cables by connecting them to optical fibre cables.
  • Connecting components over long distances which create a network between several devices spanning a much wider area.
  • Conversion to SFP optics results in the device having larger transmission range for data, significant increase in the working life span for equipment without optical fibre cable, and increasing the rate at which different devices exchange data among them.

 

Conclusion

Thus, we can understand why SFP media converter is of great importance and have a varied number of applications in the electronic and communication sector.

Plenty of benefits of using optical fibers over the copper cables

An optical fiber is a cabling technology which uses lights to carry data and voice telecommunications over small and greater distances. Optical fibers have a core which is surrounded by cladding layer which is made up of dielectric material.

The two types of optical fiber cables are as follows-
• Multimode fiber
• Single mode fiber

Single Mode Fiber is used for long distances while the Multimode fiber is used for shorter distances. The laser is used as the light source in the single mode fibers while LED is used in the multimode fibers to create the light impulses.

Earlier copper cables used to be the best choice for communication, networking, and telecommunication but now optical fibers are becoming a greater alternative. Optical cables carry more information than the conventional copper wire because of its higher bandwidth and faster speeds. Also, fiber optics is not subjected to any kind of electromagnetic interference and signal losses because glass doesn’t conduct electricity. Fiber optic cables are thinner, stronger, and lighter than copper cables and hence they don’t need to be replaced or maintained frequently.

Here are the benefits of fiber optic cables over the copper cables-

• Higher Bandwidth- Copper cables are generally designed for voice transmissions and hence have limited bandwidth. The fiber optic cables have the capability of carrying more data because of their higher bandwidth. It is also known that the single mode fiber delivers twice throughput as delivered by the multimode fiber.
• Faster speeds- Fiber optic cables have a core which carries light for data transmission. It allows the optical fibers to carry data at a speed which is just 30 percent lower than the speed of light and a lot more than the copper cable wires. Optical fiber cables also face less signal degradation.
• Reliable transmission- Optical fiber cables are immune to temperature changes, moisture, and severe weather changes while all of these are the main reason behind the degradability of the copper wire cables. Since there is no current in the optical fiber cables these are not bothered by electromagnetic interference. You don’t need to worry about any fire hazard which was the problem with the copper wires.
• Travel longer distances- Fiber optics have the capability to travel much longer distances than the copper wires. The distance actually depends on the wavelength, type of cable, and the network.
• Thinner wires- The optical fibers are thinner and sturdier. These are much lighter in weight. The optical fibers have the capability of withstanding more pressure and hence are less prone to damage and breakage.

The optical fibers are much less expensive than the copper wires. These wires are non-flammable and are much more reliable for the future use. Optical fibers enjoy a plethora of benefits over the traditional copper wires. These wires are nowadays used in each and every field because of the advantages they provide. Spend less and gain a lot more benefits with the use of optical fibers.
