What is CSFP and what are the advantages of CSFP compared to ordinary SFP?

Date: 2018-10-25 14:27 From: C-LIGHT Onclick:
CSFP (compact SFP), as its name suggests, is a more integrated SFP optical module. Comparing to normal SFP, our CSFP is housing in a MSA standard package,  but engaging the hardware and software system of two sets of common SFP optical modules designed by using double BOSA. The hardware and software of the two optical modules can work simultaneously in a device optical port that supports the CSFP protocol standard. Therefore, a CSFP module has the working capability of two SFP modules, but only occupies the optical port resources of one SFP optical module.

 Why is there a market demand for CSFP products? The reason is mainly that compared with the ordinary SFP optical module, the CSFP can double the density of the network wiring optical port under the same rack panel area, and alleviate the demand for the size of the rack panel in the Ethernet and IDC equipment room.
Which brands of devices  can C-LIGHT’s CSFP be compatible with? For the market demand, Cisco, Huawei, Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) and other first-line companies have introduced the Cisco WS-C4503-E, Huawei S5700-52X-LI-48CS-AC, Nokia 3HE10642AA 7750SR and other CSFP switches and routers.It has been verified that C-LIGHT’s CSFP optical module can be used normally in the above series of devices.
