SFP Module Support List for RV160x and RV260x Devices

Small form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports are included on the RV160 and 260 routers to allow the use of optical SFP transceiver modules. SFP’s convert the optical signals to electrical signals. SFP’s allow the handling of higher data rates. SFP ports empower SFP switches to connect various Ethernet and fiber cables through the network. There are also various types of SFP modules to suit your network’s needs. This article provides a complete list of officially supported SFP Modules and customer tested SFP Modules.

These are just some of the supported SFP Modules that may work on the Cisco RV 160 and 260 Series routers. We would love to expand this list and see if there are any other SFP Modules that our customers use. Please comment down below if you see an SFP Module not on this link and you worked with it. We also welcome any discussions on the SFP modules above. What are your thoughts and experiences with SFP on Cisco Business Routers and Switches?
