The development of internet technology today is very fast. In the past, people using the internet still use the old connection, but now they are using fast paced connections. Technological tools also develop along with existing technological developments. Many of the media used in signal distribution, one of which is optical fiber with OEM SFP. Optical fiber can be said as a form of transmission in light waves.
Does anyone know what OEM is? Original Equipment Manufacturers or abbreviated as OEM is a brand of network equipment that is well known to many people, from Cisco, Juniper, Fortinet and others.
Supporting devices for the installation of communication systems using Optical Fiber, namely Optical connector, pigtail, OEM SFP Id, etc. This time we will only discuss the SFP. SFP stands for Small Form-Factor Pluggable. SFP is a device that transmits and receives information signals with fiber optic media. SFP is a development of the Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC). SFP is also called mini-GBIC. The term GBIC means a port that is devoted to connecting backbone networks with large bandwidths.
OEM SFP Modules can be used on SFP Slot Converter Switches or media. The SFP is hot-pluggable, meaning that it will automatically detect when it is installed on the device. Mikrotik already has SFP ports on some of its Routerboard series, such as the Cloud Core Router Series, Cloud Router Switch Series, RB2011UiAS-2HND, etc.
The way to implement OEM SFP is actually quite easy. But beforehand, we must first know the network requirements that we will build, for example the distance of each node and the throughput that will be passed. From these needs, we can choose the type of SFP and fiber cable that we need. Each SFP has a mode, distance, and throughput specification. Call it the S + 85DLC03D series. This product has a specification of 10 Gbps throughput capability, which can be implemented with a multi mode fiber cable, and a fiber cable length of 300 meters.
There is a lot of misinformation circulating in the public regarding the purchase of devices on the secondary market. One of them is that the purchased device is not as good as the OEM one at NetData.
In fact, sales on the secondary market, through the right partners, always provide equipment of the same quality as new equipment, only at a relatively cheaper price. This is because refurbished goods have actually passed quality control by OEMs themselves.
