Deploying Smart SFPs is the simplest way to provide continuity of legacy services as you migrate to all IP/Ethernet/OTN based networks.
Smart SFPs leverage standard SFP/SFP+ Ethernet ports on routers, switches and optical transport gear. In addition to lowering OPEX due to their simplicity to deploy, Smart SFPs, do not consume additional precious rack space, they are typically the most cost effective method, and since they draw their power from existing ports, they lower overall power consumption helping you reduce your carbon footprint.
Here's How they Work
Mechanically they are the size and shape of common SFP transceivers, however inside, they integrate various combinations of advanced intelligent packet processors, framers, muxes, line interface units, and optical transceivers. The result is a device that adapts various services to a standard Ethernet 1G or 10G port. In conformance with MSA specifications, they operate over the entire Industrial Temperature range.
Smart SFPs are sold world-wide and are jointly developed and supported by OE Solutions and AimValley.
