Hi, SFP (Small form-factor pluggable) is a gigabit port. You have differents types, for copper and fiber optic (monomode or multimode).


When you have a description "48 10/100 + 2 SFP ip base image" this means that you have a switch with 48 10/100 ports and to slots where you can put SFPs interfaces, you have to decide what type you need.


Here some urls with SFPs types:
