Building an IT infrastructure for a business or other organisation means putting together a system which is stable, secure and flexible. The last of these is often the most difficult, with companies building systems which work as they are but lack the ability to grow and change with the wider business. SFP modules are an excellent way of dealing with this issue, but only after answering the questions ‘What is SFP?’


SFP stands for Small Form Factor Pluggable transceiver optical module. These can be plugged into the SFP port of a switch or router in order to carry data quickly and securely via ether a fibre cable or a gigabit Ethernet connection. Whether you need to transmit information or communication, an SFP module offers a convenient and versatile solution.

Communications Network

The key advantage of an SFP module is that it can be switched and replaced quickly and easily whenever you need to maintain or upgrade your system. The fact that they are physically compact is another benefit when it comes to building a companywide infrastructure, allowing companies of every size to take advantage of the kind of powerful communications network that used to be the province of larger corporations.
