Brocade 64G SWL SFP+ is an Optimized, Certified Optical Transceivers for the Highest Performance Data-Center Network Connectivity. It is a multirated 850-nm SFP that complies with 57.8/28.05/14.025Gb/s Fibre Channel specifications, supporting 10/25/50GbE when plugged into the Gen 7 (64G) 48-port blade AnyIO ports in a Brocade X7 Director.

Brocade 64G SWL SFP+ Product Overview

Brocade 64G SWL SFP+ is a 64G short wavelength (SWL) SFP+, part of the family of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers. The module is optimized to fully leverage Brocade 64G director and switch products. Together, these optical transceivers provide state-of-the-art performance, helping IT organizations achieve new levels of infrastructure consolidation while expanding the capabilities of their applications and services. In addition, Brocade 64G SWL SFP+ modules are hot-swappable, low-voltage (3.3V) digital diagnostic optical transceivers that support high-speed serial links over multimode optical fiber at signaling rates up to 57.8Gb/s. They comply with SFP+ mechanical (SFF-8402), optical, and electrical specifications (FC-PI) for LC duplex transceivers.
