Multi-Mode Fibre Optic
Emulex adapters support Multi Mode Fibre Optic Cables (MMF) with LC type connector. "LC" refers to the actual connector on the end of the cable, and it stands for "Lucent Connector". There are several kinds of MMF cables that can be purchased, the difference between one type of MMF cable and another is in the size of the core of the cable, which then determines how far apart the HBA can be from a target – also called the link length. Link length is also contingent on the bandwidth designation of the cable, OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4.

SFP+ stands for Small Form Pluggable Plus – the second generation of the SFP interconnect system, supporting data rates up to 10Gb/s. SFP+ modules can be plugged into an SFP+ cage that is installed on the board, which allows you to swap out an optical module in the event of a failure. If you order an 8Gb/s Emulex Fibre Channel HBA, it is shipped with one, two, or four SFP+ Optical Transceivers installed in the SFP+ cages on the board.
