Product Review

The CISCO 15454E-SFP-L.16.1 offers compatibility with a range of Cisco MXP and TXP cards, supporting diverse network setups. However, its RX and TX power alarm thresholds might limit performance in varying optical power conditions, potentially requiring more frequent adjustments or monitoring. Its support for a 15 km cable distance on a 9 micron SMF with a 1310 nm wavelength makes it suitable for medium-range applications, although the specific interface support restricts it to certain network environments.


The CISCO 15454E-SFP-L.16.1 is a specialized Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) module designed to deliver high-performance networking solutions. Engineered for compatibility with a range of Cisco cards including MXP_2.5G_10G, MXP_2.5G_10E, TXP_MR_2.5G, and TXPP_MR_2.5G, this module is a versatile component for enhancing network capabilities. It operates on a 1310 nm wavelength and is optimized for 9 micron Single-Mode Fiber (SMF), ensuring a reliable connection over distances up to 15 km (approximately 9.3 miles). The module is designed with precise optical power specifications to maintain optimal performance and reliability. The low and high alarm thresholds for receive (RX) power are set at -21 dBm and 3 dBm, respectively, with a low and high Transmit (TX) power alarm thresholds at -8 dBm and 3 dBm. These thresholds are critical for network monitoring and management, ensuring that the system operates within safe parameters. Additionally, the module features Temperature Conditioned Alarm (TCA) thresholds for both RX and TX power, with low TCA RX power at -18 dBm, high TCA RX power at 0 dBm, low TCA TX power at -11 dBm, and high TCA TX power at 6 dBm. These settings help in preemptively identifying potential issues, thus mitigating risks of network downtime.
