DefinitionThe 40-Gigabit QSFP+ transceiver module is a hot-swappable, parallel fiber-optical module with four independent optical transmit and receive channels. These channels can terminate in another 40-Gigabit QSFP+ transceiver, or the channels can be broken out to four separate 10-Gigabit SFP+ transceivers. The QSFP+ transceiver module connects the electrical circuitry of the system with either a copper or an optical external network.XENPAK is a multisource agreement (MSA), that defines a fiber-optic or wired transceiver module which conforms to the 10 Gigabit Ethernet(10GbE) standard of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 working group. The MSA group received input from both transceiver and equipment manufacturers during the definition process. XENPAK has been replaced by more compact devices providing the same functionality.Difference between XENPAK and QSFP+XENPAKCompatible with SENPAK MSA Rev 3.0Support of IEEE 802.3ae 10GBASE-LXENPAK MSA pac..
DefinitionSFP+ transceivers are expected to perform at data speeds of up to five gigabits per second (5 Gbps), and possibly higher. Because SFP+ modules can be easily interchanged, electro-optical or fiber optic networks can be upgraded and maintained more conveniently than has been the case with traditional soldered-in modules. Rather than replacing an entire circuit board containing several soldered-in modules, a single module can be removed and replaced for repair or upgrading. This can result in substantial cost savings, both in maintenance and in upgrading efforts as compared to old inbuilt modules.

Within the optical communication marketplace, there are several sorts of fiber optic transceivers which are SFP, GBIC, X2 and so on. Cisco is really a brand that has great overall performance on fiber optic products.As among the fundamental fiber optic transceivers, Cisco SFP is generally utilized in many locations. The inexpensive price and the higher performance, would be the benefits of Cisco SFP. As all recognized, the little form-factor pluggable (SFP) is really a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver utilized for each telecommunication and data communications applications. The type aspect and electrical interface are specified by a multi-source agreement (MSA). It interfaces a network device motherboard (for a switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a fiber optic or copper networking cable. It’s a popular industry format jointly created and supported by many network component vendors. Cisco SFP transceivers are designed to assistance SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Chan..
