The development of internet technology now is very fast. In the past people used the internet to still use the old connection, but now they are using fast paced connections. Technology tools also develop along with the development of existing technology. Many media are used in signal distribution, one of which is optical fiber with OEM SFP. Optical fiber can be regarded as one form of transmission in light waves.
Supporting devices for installing communication systems using Optical Fiber, namely Optical connector, pigtail, SFP OEM, etc. This time we will only discuss the SFP. SFP is short for Small Form-Factor Pluggable. SFP is a device that transmits and receives information signals with optical fiber media. SFP is a development of Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC). SFP is also called mini-GBIC. The term GBIC means a port that is devoted to connecting to a large bandwidth backbone network.
The OEM SFP module can be used on the Switch or SFP Slot Converter media. SFP is hot-pluggable, meaning that this device will automatically detect when installed on the device. Mikrotik already has SFP ports in some of its Routerboard series, such as the Cloud Core Router Series, Cloud Router Switch Series, RB 2011UiAS-2HND, etc.
How to implement an OEM SFP is actually quite easy. But before that, we must first know the network needs that we will build, for example the distance of each node and 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 shift specification. Call it the S + 85DLC03D series. This product has a 10Gbps throughput readiness specification, which can be implemented with a multi-mode fiber cable, and a fiber cable length of 300 meters.
