XFP Transceiver Kit

For greater flexibility, many Net Optics products use the industry-standard 10 Gigabit
XFP transceiver modules. This functionality enables end users to tap into different
network media and deploy different types of monitoring tools depending on the
application. Net Optics offers a range of products that utilize XFPs including Port
Aggregators, Bypass Switches, and the Director


data monitoring switch.
