The D-Link 10GBASE-LR 10Gbps SFP+ Transceiver is hot-swappable SFP+ transceiver that plugs into SFP+ slots on switches and support 10G Ethernet. It offers a wide variety of 10G Ethernet connectivity options for data centers, enterprise wiring closets and service provider transport applications. The transceiver use the Enhanced Small Formfactor Pluggable format (SFP+). The SFP+ form factor is smaller than other form factors such as Xenpak, X2 and 10G XFP; ensuring lower costs, lower power disruption and higher port density. They provide the necessary signal amplification for data to be transmitted to the network cable from the port and vice versa, for the port to receive data from the network cable.
The transceiver support 10G Ethernet, which results in very fast data transmissions of up to 10Gbit/s. This is 10 times faster than Gigabit Ethernet and enables the switch to handle faster and higher data transmissions, making it very suitable for business needs. The transceiver is hot-pluggable. You can connect a transceiver while the system is powered on without causing any problems. This permits modules to be added or removed without interrupting the network. The 10G SFP+ Module features DDM, real-time monitoring of critical parameters, including transmitted and received power, temperature and voltage. This allows for convenient monitoring of the module's fiber connection and early detection of problems.
