Modern people have been used to the convenience and speed brought by the Internet and new technology. Also, there have been great advances in the electronic devices we often use in daily life, including the computer, smart phone, and earphones. New functions are constantly developed to cater to customers leading a fast-paced life. SFP connectors have been upgraded more frequently; new products have been introduced every year; later, the interval was shortened to half a year and even a quarter.  The life cycle of new computer products has significantly shortened. However, consumers would not be satisfied by the simple changes on the look of the products. In addition, they require higher speed of processing data. The development of Internet optical communication technology thus plays an important role in the modern life.  The BiDi SFP+ optical module is thus created to fulfill the increasing demand and expectation on higher wireless bandwidth of Internet connection on the market.


What is the Bidi SFP+ optical module?


Let's have some fundamental ideas about BiDi and SFP+ optical module.

BiDi (Bi-directional) is an optical module with a single fiber and two-way data transmission. It can filter out the optical signal in the module with only one port and at the same time receive optical signals of 1310 mm and 1550mm. BiDi module is energy efficient, which is one of its major advantages.  Also, the module has to be used in pairs. The most common wavelength for this module includes TX1310/RX1550nm, TX1310/RX1490 nm, and TX 1550/RX1490nm.

SFP+ optical module (10 Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable) is an optical transceiver adoptable for hot-plugging. The speed of transmission can be up to 10G, and the optical wavelength for transmitting messages include 850nm, 1310nm, or 1550nm. It's the mainstream optical module for supporting the existing optical network in Ethernet and DWDM network.

The BiDi SFP+ optical module adopts the SFP+ small-molding technique. It supports the single-fiber two-way optical signal transmission, and it functions well with different distances for data transmission, including 10 kilometers, 20 kilometers, and 40 kilometers. Moreover, BiDi optical SFP+ optical module can tolerate a wide range of temperature while functioning; it works well in ambient temperature from 0 to 75 degree Celsius. With the above-mentioned advantages in speed, mass, and data transmission distance, BiDi SFP+ has become the mainstream choice for both indoor and outdoor Internet connections.


Application of BiDi SFP+


The BiDi SFP+ optical module supports different data transmission distances, and it can keep stable signal transmission and high speed. It is now applied in major base stations for wireless communication as a channel for signal and data transmission.


People may have the misconception that the speed of Internet connection has something to do with the hardware of the computer. This is somewhat true because old-fashioned computers may not be able to handle the massive and complex data transmitted through the Internet. However, the major factor for the speed of Internet connection lies in the element of cable for Internet connection. Thus, users can enjoy a lot of benefits from a better understanding of SFP connectors. Such knowledge is helpful for choosing an optical module to connect with the optical network. By choosing and changing elements based on our individual needs, we can save a large sum from equipment installation fees!
