Chapter 1
The GE Security SFP1000 and SFP100 family of Small Form Factor Pluggable
(SFP, also known as mini-GBIC) Transceiver Modules is specifically designed
for a high performance integrated duplex data link over single mode optical
fiber. These transceiver modules are compliant with the SFP Multisource
Agreement (MSA). With the hot plug ability, these modules offer an easy way
to be installed into SFP MSA compliant ports at any time without the
interruption of the host equipments operating online. The SFP Transceivers
can be installed into any of GE Security Switch products with the 100Base-FX
or 1000Base-SX/LX SFP interface.

Installing SFP modules
The section describes how to insert an SFP transceiver into an SFP slot.
The SFP transceivers are hot pluggable and hot swappable. You can plug-in
and out the transceiver from any SFP port without having to power down the
Switch/Media Converter. As Figure 1 shows.
SFP Transceivers User Manual
Chapter 1: Overview
Figure 1: Plug-in the SFP transceiver
Note: Before connecting the other switches, workstations or Media
Converters ensure the following conditions are met.
Make sure both sides of the SFP transceiver are the same media
type, for example: 100Base-FX to 100Base-FX, 1000Base-SX to
Check that the fiber-optic cable type matches the SFP transceiver
To connect to a SFP1000SX-220m or a SFP100FX1310-TSC2Km SFP transceiver, use the multi-mode fiber cable- where
one side must be a male duplex LC connector type.
To connect to the SFP1000LX-10km or the SFP100FX1310TSC-20Km SFP transceiver, use the single-mode fiber cablewhere one side must be a male duplex LC connector type.
Connecting the Fiber cable
Attach the duplex LC connector on the network cable into the SFP
Connect the other end of the cable to a device - switches with SFP
installed, fiber NIC on a workstation or a Media Converter.
SFP Transceivers User Manual
Chapter 1: Overview
Check that the LNK/ACT LED on the SFP slot of the switch/converter.
Ensure that the SFP transceiver is operating correctly.
Check the Link mode of the SFP port. If the link failed. Set the Link
mode to "1000 Force" or "100 Force" if needed.
Removing the module
Make sure that there is no network activity by checking with the
network administrator. Or through the management interface of the
switch/converter (if available) to disable the port in advance.
Remove the Fiber Optic Cable gently.
Turn the handle of the MFB module to horizontal.
Pull out the module gently through the handle.
Figure 2: Pullout the transceiver
Note: Never pull out the module without pull the handle or the push bolts on
the module. Pulling out the module with too much force could damage the
module and SFP module slot of the Managed Industrial Switch.
