What is an SFP port?

The acronym "SFP" stands for small form-factor pluggable, and is the type of connection made by fiber transceivers to network switches. 

When to use SFP ports?

SFP ports allow fiber connections to be made to switches, which can exceed the standard 100 meter distance limit imposed by Ethernet cables. A fiber connection can be made very long, depending on the type of module purchased.

An SFP port can also be used to convert from a fiber connection to a standard Ethernet connection.
