Mikrotik – Choosing your SFP/SFP+ modules and direct access cables

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/09

For hooking up SFP and SFP+ ports on Mikrotik devices you basically have two options:

  • Direct Access Cable (passive and affordable for 1 and 2 meters; active and more expensive for more than 3 meters)
  • SFP/SFP+ modules with LC-LC optic fiber cable in between them (pairs of modules are more expensive than passive DAC, but the fiber is a lot cheaper)

Choosing the SFP/SFP+ modules is a bit intimidating as the MikroTik SFP module compatibility table – MikroTik Wiki has very few details.

Then I found sfp_all-150601132341.pdf (archived) which lists many of the SFP and SFP+ modules including their specifications.

Since neither the matrix nor the PDF contains links to the products, here is a small list of what I could source last year and is compatible with both the CCR1009 routeres and CRS226 switches:
