Copper IEEE-1394b SFP

The 1394b SFP (FW-SFP-1394B), short for small form-factor pluggable, is a compact, copper transceiver providing IEEE-1394b connectivity through a 9-pin Beta connector. These copper SFPs support S100╬▓, S200╬▓, S400╬▓ and S800╬▓ data communication rates.


  • Data rate support:
    • S100╬▓
    • S200╬▓
    • S400╬▓
    • S800╬▓
  • Full transparency to other network nodes
  • Media connection model:
    • 9-pin (FW-SFP-1394B)
  • IEEE-1394b (beta) standard compliant
  • MRV 72 and 144 Media Cross Connect Compatibility
  • Lepton ColdFusion x2 & x8 Slot Layer 1 Switch Compatibility


  • Copper SFPs double the physical reach of IEEE-1394 (also known as FireWire) networks when used in repeater configuration
  • Works with the MCC (Media Cross Connect) to simplify remote network topology changes for test/simulation automation
  • Allows the use of mixed copper and fiber optic infrastructures when used as fiber-to-copper media converter
  • Non-intrusive (no additional 1394 node) extension of 1394 cable length
