Advantage of SFP+ Copper Cable

SFP+ Active copper cables are copper cables for data transmission that use a silicon chip (semiconductor) to boost the performance of the cable. Without a chip, a cable is considered a 'passive' cable.

Traditional SFP+ copper passive cable — does not consume power and is an ideal choice for up to 12 meters. However, bulkiness, weight and signal integrity problems start to crop up at distances greater than seven to 10 meters.

The following are listed for some advantage of the SFP Copper cable

It supports Power over Ethernet (PoE). This gives you the ability to power phones, surveillance cameras, Wireless Access Points (WAPs), and many other devices right through the networking cable itself. That means that you don’t have to schedule an electrician in to run power to your surveillance cameras to power them.

Much More Flexible: TDM environments are built to run on copper infrastructures. Fiber can be used, however, the electronics that make it work are expensive.
