This transceiver module is an electrical Small Form Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) transceiver module for the high-performance integrated full duplex data link at 10.3125Gbps over Category Cat 6a/7 UTP. Interoperability with legacy Ethernet equipment auto-negotiation is of particular significance as it enables data center expansions and expenditures to occur incrementally. The added benefit is that it uses standards-based technology that uses the familiar RJ45 connector and provides backward compatibility with legacy networks.

The 10G BASE-T electrical SFP+ transceivers use an integrated RJ-45 connector with a transformer and PHY IC. The link length is up to 30m over four pair Category Cat 6a/7 UTP

All Pactech SFP+ support the 2-wire serial communication protocol outlined in the SFP+ MSA. These SFP+ use a 128-byte E2PROM with an address of A0h.

The 10GBASE-T physical layer IC can also be accessed via the 2-wire serial bus at address ACh.
