Low-cost implementations using standard manufacturing processes
Leading networking companies use Lumentum’s patented cage designs to retain hot-pluggable SFP transceivers. The press-fit and solder-down cages accommodate all SFP-MSA compliant transceivers, and are ideally suited for applications on PCBs with a minimum thickness of 0.062 inches. The excellent material memory characteristics provide high cage retention to the PCB, resulting in fewer field failures. Lumentum connectors lead the industry in simplicity of use and mechanical robustness.
