However, in today's communications world we have many other choices when it comes to networking switches, with most options providing the same or similar results.
Cisco Switches like most other devices provide ports for SFP’s. These SFP Ports allow for the connection to a Fibre Optic or Copper Network.
SFP ports are found on most Ethernet Switches, Routers, Firewall, and Network Interface Cards.
SFP stands for Small Form Pluggable and is basically a GBIC (Gigabit Interface Converter) but much smaller in size. This difference in size allows for more ports on a switch making this the more practical option.
This type of transceiver is known as a hot-swappable, compact module that can plug into any SFP port.
A multi-source agreement (MSA) is an agreement between multiple manufacturers to make products that are compatible across vendors, acting as de facto standards, establishing a competitive market for interoperable products.
Products that adhere to multi-source agreements (MSAs) include optical transceivers, such as the SFP, SFP+, XENPAK, QSFF, XFF, CFP, etc.; fibre optic cables; and other networking devices.
MSAs strictly define the operating characteristics of these network devices so that system vendors may implement ports in their devices (e.g. Ethernet switches and routers) that allow MSA compliant devices produced by name brands, as well as third-party vendors, to function properly.
