Short for gigabit interface converter, GBIC is a hot-swappable networking component that enables a router, switch, or other network devices to have support for different connections. For example, a network router may have a blade that supports different GBICs, meaning the user can use different fiber connections, copper connections, or other network connections. The picture is an example of a single 10000BASE-SX NETGEAR GBIC module.
