QSFP+ Fiber Cable Connects Network Equipment at Speeds up to 40 Gbps
This three-meter (9.8-foot) QSFP+ Active Optical Cable (AOC) provides next-generation performance by combining four full-duplex 10 Gbps SFP+ channels into one affordable high-density package. Each male connector contains four fiber optic transceivers, each capable of data transfer speeds up to 10 Gbps. Together, the N28F-03M-AQ provides an aggregated speed up to 40 Gbps, making it ideal for switches, servers, routers and other high-end networking equipment.
Push/Pull Tab Connectors Provide Quick, Easy Connections
The hot-pluggable QSFP+ connectors include ergonomic push/pull tabs, which are easily accessible in high-density applications and make the cable easy to install and remove with just one hand.
Engineered and Optimized for Bandwidth-Intense Applications
This QSFP+ to QSFP+ cable integrates a 40 Gbps Ethernet-optimized 38-position "board as connector" design. Die-cast zinc connectors offer superior EMI (electromagnetic interference) resistance and reduced crosstalk. The connectors have also been tested to meet stringent insertion loss standards. The QSFP+ optical cable's 8-pair wire technology is optimized for 40GBASE-CR4, 6G SAS, Fibre Channel, PCIe, SONET and InfiniBand applications. The plenum-rated OFNP jacket is designed for connecting network components in drop ceiling, walls and ducts.
Cisco-Compatible Cable Fully Compliant with the Latest Standards
This QSFP+ cable is fully compliant with the latest QSFP+ Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), IEEE 802.3ba standards and industry-standard SFF-8436 specifications. It is compatible with all QSFP and QSFP+ ports and Cisco's QSFP-H40G-AOC1M cable.
