GIBC is an interface device that converts gigabit electrical signals into optical signals. GBIC design can be used for hot swap
GBIC is an interchangeable product that conforms to international standards. Gigabit switch with GBIC interface design because of the exchange of flexible, in the market occupies a larger market share.
GBIC module is divided into two categories: First, the common cascade of the use of GBIC module to achieve the general connection with other switches; Second, the stack dedicated GBIC module, and other switches to achieve redundant connection.
GBIC is currently basically replaced by SFP, for the following reasons:
SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggables) can be easily understood as an upgraded version of GBIC.
The SFP module is half the size of the GBIC module and can be configured with more than double the number of ports on the same panel.
As the SFP module in function and GBIC basically the same, but also by some switch manufacturers called miniaturized GBIC (Mini-GBIC).
