Economic solution for within rack, or rack-to-rack applications

General Details

Characteristics

  • Compatible with industry standard QSFP cages +Switches
  • EEPROM signature can be customized
  • QSFP+cable assemblies are hot swappable
  • The programmed EEPROM signature enables the host to differentiate between a copper cable assembly and a fiber optic module
  • Low power consumption assists in making the passive copper cable assembly an economic solution for within rack, or rack-to-rack applications

Application

  • 40G Ethernet
  • Infiniband QDR
  • 4G/8G/10G Fiber Channel
  • High Performance Computing Clusters
  • High End Servers
  • Metro Network Switch/Cross Connect

Fiberon’s QSFP+copper cable assemblies are a low cost alternative for short reach 4X applications. They are designed to be fully compatible in form factor and optical/electrical connections according to the QSFP Multi- Source Agreement.

QSFP+(Quad SFP+) connectors provide four channels of data in one pluggable interface. Each channel is capable of transferring data at 10Gbps and supports a total of aggregate 40Gbps as specified for QSFP+. These interconnects have three times the density of SFP+ interconnects (MSA) and have been designed to meet the harshest external operating conditions including temperature, humidity and EMI interference.
