Supports a data transfer rate of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps). It is commonly used for 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections.
Also supports a data transfer rate of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps), but it is an enhanced version that can support higher data rates. SFP+ is used for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and beyond, including 25 Gigabit Ethernet and 40 Gigabit Ethernet.
Has the standard SFP form factor, which is relatively larger compared to the enhanced SFP+ form factor.
Has the enhanced SFP+ form factor, which is smaller than the standard SFP. The smaller size allows for greater port density on networking equipment.
Typically used for 10G connections and is not backward compatible with higher-speed standards.
Designed to be backward compatible with 10G connections but can also support higher data rates such as 25G and 40G. This backward compatibility makes SFP+ more versatile in terms of network upgrades.
Associated with the initial implementation of 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
Associated with enhanced versions of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and subsequent higher-speed Ethernet standards.
