Active Optical Cables QSFP+ 40G Breakout Enlarge this image


Siemon 40G QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ Breakout Active Optical Cable (AOC) assemblies offer a highly reliable and cost-effective alternative to transceiver assemblies available in lengths ranging from 0.5M to 100M, beyond the range of Direct Attach Copper Cables (DAC). These high performance and low power consumption AOCs are Ethernet, InfiniBand and MSA compliant with a robust construction, including a high-strength pull tab latching system which reduces plug loss and ensures more secure installations.

These 40G QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ Breakout assemblies are capable of transmitting data up to 4 x 10Gb/s, offering an easy installation with a flexible, multimode fiber cable. AOCs eliminate the interoperability issues of transceiver assemblies to achieve proper parameter optimization and are equipped with Digital Diagnostic Monitoring, allowing I2C real-time supervision of operating parameters and transmits warnings if those parameters exceed specification.

Typical AOC applications include point-to-point connections within data centers, high performance computing and storage racks. The versatile connections can be rack-to-rack within the same row or another row and their hot swappable and high-density design allows use within a wide range of top-of-rack and other data center architectures.
