XFP-RF: Interface Specifications for an RF-Modulated Small Form Factor Pluggable Optical Module

The standardization and deployment of pluggable optical interfaces for headend equipment offer cost and power savings to cable operators. However, implementing pluggable optical interfaces in these devices presents significant technical challenges, since the lack of standardization may result in too many combinations of interfaces to support effectively in a headend device (power, wavelengths, cards, etc.).
