Whats the best 10GbE transceiver option?
Posted on 2009-07-07
I was planning on getting some new Dell Power connect 6200 switches and wanted to connect the switches together using 10GbE fiber and I was unsure what the best transceiver option was before I order the switch. E.G XFP , SFP+ etc and what the benefits and draw backs of the different types of transceivers?
Basically It is for bandwidth purposes that I wish to have these 10GbE Fiber connections as all the switches will be located within around a 10 metre area so a short range transceivers should suffice.
I am currently looking at the 10Gb SFP+ Optical Transceiver, SR, LC Connector but was not sure if this would be the best option.
Would a conventional copper 10GbE port offer any benefits against the Fiber options?
