The Cisco SFP Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Module (GLC-SX-MMD) is a Cisco 1000BASE-SX small form-factor pluggable (SFP) Gigabit Ethernet transceiver. This hot-swappable input/output device plugs into a Gigabit Ethernet port or slot and allows the port to be linked with the network via multimode optical fibre.
This donation provides a single transceiver module, part number GLC-SX-MMD=, without any additional equipment.
If you have experience with fibre optic networks or hire a consultant, you can use this transceiver in combination with other networking equipment to implement a local area network (LAN) fibre optic backbone for your organisation. Fibre optic cabling provides greater bandwidth than traditional copper cabling.
This model operates on ordinary multimode fibre-optic (MMF) link spans of up to 550 meters in length and on 62.5-micrometer FDDI-grade multimode fibres up to 220 meters.
