***Embrionix created the world’s first RESTful 10GE SFP+ - 2016-01-05

RESTful API controllable 10GE SFP+

Laval, Quebec (January 5th, 2016) — Embrionix, a leader in video and telecommunication SFP’s, and advanced emSFP products, is proud to announce the creation of the world’s first RESTful controlled 10GE SFP. Embrionix’s 10GE SFP is capable of 1GE, 10GE rates, and it allows controllability via IP over a RESTful API. As outlined by the RESTful interface, the user is able to control the 10GE and 1GE behavior of this emSFP. Other networking features include:
  • Built-in Webserver (webpage)
  • ICMP
  • IGMP
  • DHCP
  • mDNS discovery & registration
  • live update capable on the 10GE port

Embrionix RESTful 10GE SFP+ was presented to Embrionix partners in December 2015. A live demonstration of the RESTful controlled 10GE emSFPs is available upon request at

“We are aware that the video industry is shifting towards IP. In order to adequately support our video customers, we need to bring the controllability of the emSFP to a new level. This is achieved by a simple RESTful API directly accessible in the emSFP. By allocating the control bandwidth over the 10GE, it is now possible to take full advantage of the IP aggregation and minimizing the number of cables inside a plant. The Embrionix team has proven that control packets and critical packets can cohabit without problems.” said Sarkis Abrahamian, VP Business Development at Embrionix.

“This alleviates the limitation of control and accessibility only through an SNMP manager or frame/chassis controller, and allows retrieval of data directly from the emSFP. In addition to the RESTful interface, the SFP supports IGMP, ICMP, DHCP and mDNS.” Abrahamian added.
Embrionix will be showcasing this technology at multiple interop events in 2016. Our modules will also be used in major broadcast events this year, demonstrating the flexibility and possibilities around Embrionix SFP and emSFP modules.
