Main features of the Cisco XFP Module include:

• Supports 10GBASE Ethernet and OC-192/STM-64 data rates

• Hot-swappable input/output device plugs into a XFP port of a Cisco Systems® router to link the port with the network

• Provides flexibility of interface choice

• Supports "pay-as-you-populate" model

• Supports the digital optical monitoring capability

• Supports the Cisco quality identification (ID) feature that helps enable a Cisco switch or router to identify whether the module is a Cisco certified and tested XFP

• Supports optical interoperability with respective Cisco 10GBASE XENPAK and X2, and SFP+ modules on the same link

Cisco 10GBASE-SR XFP module for MMF

The 10GBASE-SR XFP is dedicated to Ethernet applications only. It supports a link length of 26m on standard FDDI-grade MMF. Up to 300m link lengths are possible when using 2000 MHz/km MMF (OM3). Up to 400m link lengths are possible when using 4700MHz*km MMF (OM4).
