GE SFP Fortigate 400D

Hello friends.

I have a fortigate 400D, receiving 100 Mbps from my ISP (UTP cable). Now I want to connect it to fiber at the same speed (100 Mbps). I saw that it has 8xGE SFP slots that I assume supports fiber.

My questions is:

Is it possible to connect it to a fiber working at 100 Mbps speed?

If yes, what kind of module I need?

 

Thankx.

Hello Kalane,

Yes it's possible to do what you want by using a 1Gbps SFP transceiver (it will be more than you need, but you will be covered to have more speed in the future if you need), the transceiver type will depend if your ISP will use single mode fiber (laser) or multi mode fiber (led light).

 

There are 2 transceivers:

  • FN-TRAN-SX: 1Gbps, for multi mode fiber
  • FN-TRAN-LX: 1Gbps, for single mode fiber

I will leave a datasheet link in case you want to check it out:

Best regards.

As you think, so shall you become.
