QSFP+ 40G Active Optical CablesEnlarge this image


Siemon 40Gb/s Low Power Active Optical Cable (AOC) assemblies offer a cost-effective, extended reach option for high-speed data center interconnects. These AOC assemblies incorporate integrated opto-electronics with four fiber optic transceivers per end, each operating at data rates from 1 to 10.5 Gb/s and supporting a reach up to 100 meters. The cable is available in a number of standard lengths up to 100 meters.

AOC's offer customers the flexibility of traditional optical modules by interfacing to systems via a standard QSFP+ MSA, SFF-8436 connector. The cable is electrically compliant with the SFP+ interface supporting InfiniBand, Ethernet, Fiber Channel and other applications. The QSFP+ connector includes the Digital Diagnostic Monitoring Interface (DDMI).
