This 10Gigabit SFP+ module is designed to transmit and receive optical data over legacy OM1 multimode fiber of up to 220m whilst the AT-SP10SR can barely reach 26m.
OM1 optical fiber is the traditional 62.5/125 µm multimode fiber widely used in the1990's for indoor FDDI Rings. It has become the standard multimode fiber in both the USA and Europe. OM1 fiber was also chosen by AT&T, ANSI and IBM as the standard fiber for indoor cabling.
The FS970M Series also includes fiber models configured with 24 x 10/100FX fiber ports, or a versatile option with 16 x 10/100FX fiber ports and an additional 8 x 10/100TX ports. All FS970M Series models also provide two Gigabit combo (10/100/1000T/SFP) uplink ports for faster, long distance connectivity.
The following table shows which SFP module to use for each kind of multimode fiber.
|Fiber||Core diameter||Model||Max Distance|
|OM2 & OM3||50 µm||AT-SP10SR||300m|
For those of you who are more techie, the following table shows the maximum distances achievable by each kind of OM multimode Fiber at 1G, 10G and 40G according to ANSI/TIA-568-C standard.
The “M” in the AT-SP10LRM means that there is a “mode conditioning” gear inside the module, optimizing the coupling between the laser optics made for singlemode fiber and the OM1 multimode fiber used. Therefore there is no need for an external mode conditioning patch cord.
