Why MSA standards are important

MSA standards create an open marketplace for SFP and SFP+ transceiver modules, providing customers with a wider choice of products and competitive pricing - resulting in cost savings.

The standards give you the assurance that SFP modules manufactured by StarTech.com are identical in form factor and functionality to the equivalent Cisco® and HP® SFPs, and meet the MSA standards requirements of all compatible networking equipment brands following the MSA standards.

What are MSA standards?

Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and enhanced SFP+ optical transceivers are standardized technologies, manufactured to comply with Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) standards. The MSA is an agreement among competing industry manufacturers to build products that are compatible across multiple vendors of networking equipment (Ethernet switches, routers, and media converters). All elements of the SFP or SFP+ including the mechanical and electrical interface are specified by a Multi-Source Agreement.
