ExpressPort™ SFP+ 1xN Cages

Amphenol ICC's ExpressPort SFP+ 1xN Cages expand Amphenol ICC's SFP series product offering to provide data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps when combined with the new ExpressPort SFP+ connector. Together, these products form a modular high speed I/O interconnect system providing a higher speed, inexpensive external I/O product, primarily for the networking, telecom and storage systems markets. ExpressPort SFP+ 1xN cages and connectors meet the SFF-8432 standard for single port cages, and SFF-8433 standard for 1xN (1x2, 1x4 and 1x6) port versions, and feature compliant press-fit pins (single port cages are also available with PCB mount solder tails). Applications for this product include network switches, routers, servers, and storage devices.
