Which kind of SFP port does the Turris Omnia have?

This wikipedia page shows a "Comparison of SFP types" chart.

Can anyone say – of the different SFP types listed there – which type we have in the Turris Omnia router, and what speeds will it handle?

(I might guess it would be the 2nd entry in the chart - the 1 Gbit/s SFP, but that’s just a guess.)

My router specs are:

Kernel Version:5.15.94
Model:Turris Omnia
Architecture:ARMv7 Processor rev 1 (v7l)
Firmware Version:TurrisOS 6.2.4 0d4a0250df17a9f7b0fff720fa3224b45d5b0841

I’m just wondering if I’ll ever get to use the SFP port - or if my ISP will ever provide FttH. My ISP is Verizon Fios in the U.S.

Thanks for any ideas.

It’s a 1g/2.5g SFP. Just normal SFP, not cSFP or anything like that.

This doesn’t mean 2.5GbE-capable adapters will necessarily work - it has to support 2.5g on the SFP side.

You dont necessarily need FttH to get faster than gigabit speeds.

There are cable modems with ethernet ports that put out 2.5Gbps on a standard ethernet cable and you can buy a 2.5GBaseT SFP adapter which works fine on the Turris Omnia. See my post here: FS 2.5GBase-T SFP not working with Turris Omnia - #7 by tac2

I use Comcast which gives me 1.2Gbps over standard coax cable and my cable modem has a 2.5Gbps WAN port which is connected to my Omnia’s SFP port using CAT6 cable.

The SFP port does support direct fiber if you can get it from your cable company though (though I dont know which adapters are supported by the Omnia, see the wiki Supported SFP modules [Turris wiki] )
