Cisco GLC-FE-100EX 100BASE-EX Small Form factor Pluggable, Single-Mode Fiber-Optic, Fast Ethernet GBIC Transceiver Module - Brand New

Product Overview

The Cisco® 100BASE-X Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) device (Figure 1) is a hot-swappable input/output device that plugs into Fast Ethernet ports, dual-rate Fast/Gigabit Ethernet ports, or Gigabit Ethernet ports of a Cisco switch or router, linking the port with the fiber cabling network.

Main features include the following:

  • Hot-swappable when deployed, the switch or router does not have to reboot
  • Supports the “pay-as-you-populate” model
  • Interchangeable with other 100BASE-X SFPs on the same line card
  • Supports the Cisco quality ID feature that enables the switch or router to identify whether or not the SFP is a Cisco qualified SFP
  • Optically interoperable with respective 100BASE-X Ethernet interfaces on the same link

Cisco 100BASE-EX SFP
The Cisco 100BASE-EX SFP operates on ordinary SMF link spans up to 40 km long.

GLC-FE-100EX modules operate in Fast Ethernet or dual-rate Fast/Gigabit Ethernet ports of Cisco switches and routers.
