interfaces comprise a series of technological enhancements to traditional
optical or copper interfaces. First and foremost, they are very small
hot-swappable modules that can easily be removed from the host
This simple and powerful concept allows a dramatic increase in
flexibility. If the host device supports protocol transparency then one can
build a tremendous variety of applications with a very small number of host
system types. For example, the EM316-MR module for the Fiber Driver? system provides
two SFP interfaces that can be configured with virtually any type of copper or
In addition, all of the above applications can be
implemented using virtually any protocol in common use in voice, data, storage
and video networking today!
This unprecedented flexibility is only the
beginning of Pluggables technology.
