ProLabs Launches SFP+ Module that Extends the Life of Switch Hardware
ProLabs, the leading global provider of network infrastructure and connectivity products, announces the introduction of a 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceiver which will allow data centre and network managers the ability to extend the life of their cabling infrastructure with a simple cost effective upgrade.
This is the first in the range of ProLabs copper products - 2.5/5G Copper SFP transceivers for the data centre and G.Fast copper transceivers for the telecom industry, which interface with a standard Ethernet switch, will also be launched later in the year.
The advantages of using 10G copper cabling include:
- Extension of the life of any switch hardware, without having to change existing infrastructure
- Simple cost effective upgrades
- Ease of use
The 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceiver pushes the limits of copper based technology, providing 10 gigabits of data transfer over distances of 30 meters or less and replaces the need for direct attach cables that have limitations up to 10 meters.
