  Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) Transceivers  
The LanPro small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers are compact, hot-pluggable modules that are used for copper or fiber optic connectivity applications in the telecommunication and data communication fields. 
 
The Small Form Factor Pluggable Multi-Sourcing Agreement (MSA) specifies the form factor and electrical interface for connecting a network device motherboard (e.g.: switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a copper or fiber optic networking cable.
 
It is a very popular industry format developed and supported by many network component vendors in a joint effort. The SFP transceivers are designed to support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and other communications standards.  The gigabit interface converter (GBIC) technology has become obsolete by the advance of the SFP due to its smaller size; some vendors call the SFP as a Mini-GBIC even though this name has not been defined in the MSA.
 
The Copper and Fiber Optic SFP products by LanPro have been designed for compatibility with many vendors.
