SFP is short for Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) Transceiver.
They plug into an SFP Compaitble Port and allow for compact
SFP modules contain an EEPROM containing information about the
part. This MIB defines objects which will allow an NMS to extract
the information from the SFP modules in a MIB format.
The MIB objects defined in this MIB are based on the
**Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) Transceiver MultiSource Agreement(MSA)**
Since SFP MODULES are an extension of the port itself, the ifIndex for a
sfp Compatible Port will be used to access information from these modules.
The Entity MIB (RFC 2737) Should Contain Entries for Each SFP Module.
SFP to Port to PortIfIndex can be acheived via the Entity MIB (RFC2737)
