AFC Group has extended its active fibre equipment range to include GBICs and Mini GBICs (SFP).
GBICs or Gigabit Interface Converters are removable transceiver modules supporting gigabit transmission over a fibre optic network.
They are modular devices that plug into Ethernet switches with dedicated GBIC slots or uplinks.
GBIC's offer high speed backbone or switch to switch connectivity over fibre. Versions including 850nm (SX), 1300nm (LX) and 1310nm single mode (LX) are available in both SC (GBIC) and LC (Mini GBIC or SFP) styles.
