More Information of this Item
The CAB-HD8-ASYNC is a cable manufactured by Cisco that is designed to be used with the 3800, 2800, and 1800 series routers. These routers are designed for small-to-medium-sized businesses and enterprise branch offices, and the model cable is used to expand their connectivity options.
The "ASYNC" in the cable's name refers to the fact that it is an asynchronous cable, which means that it supports serial communication. Specifically, the cable has 8 asynchronous serial ports, which can be used to connect a variety of devices, such as modems, printers, or other serial devices to the router. Each port supports data rates up to 57.6 kbps.
The "High Density" in the cable's name refers to the fact that it is designed to be used in high-density situations, where a large number of asynchronous serial ports are needed in a small amount of space. For example, a customer could use this cable in a small remote site with multiple serial devices to be connected to a single router, instead of multiple router each one with one serial connection.
It's a physically long cable, but it can be mounted at the back of the router, to save space.
It should be noted that this cable is not compatible with all Cisco routers and should be used only with the 3800, 2800, and 1800 series routers.
Features and Benefits
The performance of the CAB-HD8-ASYNC Cisco 3800/2800/1800 High Density 8Port ASYNC Cable depends on several factors, including the speed and quality of the serial connection, the configuration of the router, and the performance of the other devices that the cable is connected to.
In terms of the cable's physical characteristics, it supports 8 asynchronous serial ports, with a maximum data transfer rate of 115.2 Kbps (kilobits per second) for each port. This is the standard speed for asynchronous serial communication and it allows for reliable data transfer between devices.
The cable performance also depends on the hardware and software of the cisco router to which it is connected. The Cisco 3800, 2800, and 1800 series routers that the cable can be used with, have different capabilities and performance specifications. Therefore, it is recommended to check the specific router's hardware and software specifications to understand the maximum achievable throughput.
The cable also requires the right configuration and setup on the router's side, to get the maximum performance. It is important that the serial interface is configured correctly and optimized for the specific type of data transfer.
In addition to these factors, the cable's performance also depends on the performance of the other devices that it is connected to. For example, if the cable is connecting the router to a slow or malfunctioning device, the overall performance of the connection will be limited.
CAB-HD8-ASYNC is a cable that is designed for use with certain Cisco router models, specifically the 3800, 2800, and 1800 series routers. The cable is used to connect the router to an external asynchronous serial device, such as a modem or other networking device. The "High Density" designation in the cable's name refers to the fact that it has 8 ports, which allows for multiple devices to be connected to the router using a single cable.
Reliability of this cable is depend on how it is maintained and its usage. This cable is made of high-quality materials and is built to meet or exceed industry standards, which should make it relatively durable and long-lasting. Additionally, The cable is shielded and has built-in protection to help prevent against electromagnetic interference (EMI), which can help ensure that data is transmitted reliably over the cable. Regular inspection of cable and its connector on both ends would help keeping the cable reliable and secure connections.
It is important to note that, the cable may have a limited life span, if it is exposed to high temperature, physical stress, direct sunlight or chemical fumes that might shorten the lifespan of this cable.

About Refurbished Products
Cables - Async Cable
For all Cisco 2511 series routers, you need to have a CAB-OCTAL-ASYNC cable. This cable connects to the router through a 68-pin connector, while the other end of the cable consists of 8 different RJ-45 connectors. Each of these 8 created ports connects to the rest of the router in the server room or lab. It is a cable that you cannot do without if you have the Cisco routers.
How Async Cable is Connected
Async cable creates 8 DTE ports from a 68-pin connector. These cables are generally rolled and can be connected directly to DTE devices. If you have equipment other than the DTE such as data circuit terminating equipment, you might be required to use an adapter to connect the RJ-45 terminals of this cable to a 25-pin connector.
High-Density Asynchronous Cabling
Async cable can be used together with serial and asynchronous modules to achieve highly-flexible connections for Cisco equipment. The 8-port async cable offers high-density connectors at one end with ready RJ-45 ports for other connections. As mentioned, you might need modular adapters depending on the async device that you want to connect with this cable.
Easily Access Console Ports
By just using one point, you can access up to 8 modules in the lab. This gives you easy control over the routers as there will be no need for IP address configuration on your routers. You are also relieved from such tasks you usually do before you can declare your network operational.
