||1-Gbps Copper Gigabit Ethernet SFP, 1000Base-T, RJ-45, Spare
The Cisco® Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP), Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+), and X2 devices for use on the Cisco MDS 9000 Family of products are hot-swappable transceivers that plug into ports on the Cisco MDS 9000 Family director switching modules and fabric switches. These transceivers give users the flexibility to choose different cabling types and distances on a port-by-port basis.
Cisco Copper Gigabit Ethernet SFPs
To enable even more cabling flexibility, the Cisco MDS 9000 family offers a copper Gigabit Ethernet SFP. Based on the 1000BASE-T standard, the Cisco Copper Gigabit Ethernet SFP provides cost-effective connectivity for data center applications. The Cisco Copper Gigabit Ethernet SFP (part number DS-SFP-GE-T) allows a user to use standard Category-5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling for Ethernet connectivity.
