The QSFP-100G-AOC1M= is a Cisco 100GBase Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable (QSFP) Active Optical Cable. It is a high-speed, short-reach optical cable that is used to connect network devices such as switches and routers. This cable provides a 100 Gbps data rate over a single optical fiber, which makes it ideal for use in data centers and other high-speed network environments.
The model is an active optical cable, which means that it contains integrated electronics that convert electrical signals to optical signals and vice versa. This allows for a higher data rate and longer reach than passive optical cables. The active optical cable also provides better power efficiency, lower cost and easier installation comparing to traditional optical transceiver.
This cable is 1 meter in length and features a QSFP connector on each end. The QSFP connector is a compact and high-density interface that allows for the connection of multiple optical fibers in a single connector. This makes it ideal for use in high-density network environments, where space is at a premium.
The model Cisco 100GBase QSFP Active Optical Cable is compliant with IEEE 802.3ba standard, and RoHS and REACH. It is also tested and certified to ensure that it meets Cisco's high standards for performance, reliability, and quality. It is a cost-effective and high-performance solution for connecting network devices in high-speed environments such as data centers and other high-bandwidth applications.
The performance of the QSFP-100G-AOC1M= Cisco 100GBase QSFP Active Optical Cable is determined by several factors such as the quality of the optical fibers, the precision of the connectors, and the performance of the integrated electronics.
This cable is designed to provide a data rate of 100 Gbps over a single optical fiber, which is much faster than other types of cables such as copper or passive optical cables. It also allows for a longer reach, up to 100 meters, compared to copper cables.
The use of active optical technology in this cable means that the signal is amplified along the cable, which helps to maintain signal integrity over longer distances. This also makes it more resistant to signal loss, which improves the overall performance of the cable.
The QSFP connector on each end of the cable allows for a high-density connection of multiple optical fibers in a single connector. This makes it ideal for use in high-density network environments where space is at a premium.
The model Cisco 100GBase QSFP Active Optical Cable is compliant with IEEE 802.3ba standard, which ensures interoperability with other devices that comply with this standard. Cisco has also tested the cable to ensure that it meets their high standards for performance, reliability and quality.

Cables - Direct Attach Cable
Direct Attach Cable, also known as the DAC cable, connects the equipment and peripherals in a data network. All the active networking equipment, including the data storage devices, switches, routers, servers, and more, will be connected and synched using the DAC cables. As far as the usage is concerned, these direct attached copper cables are getting fame in the data storage centers and the industry sector and server rooms: the reason being the cost-effective, efficient, and easier way to form the connection.
Direct Attach Copper Cables Are Terminated with Modules:
DAC cables are terminated from the manufacturer with the modules, which can easily connect the active peripheral equipment and secure an electrical connection. These modules are factory terminated and cannot be removed from the DAC cables afterward. Hence these wires possess a fixed length.
There are plenty of types and models available for the direct attach cables, including the direct, breakout, active and passive. As mentioned in the name, the direct cable can form a direct stable connection among the two peripherals, while breakout can connect one port with the four others. On the other hand, an active DAC cable will transmit signals to a little longer distance than the passive ones.
We, at ALLHDD, have got you all the range DAC cables for you to shop from! Choose from the following sub-categories: 0.5 Meter, 1 Meter, 16.4 Feet, 2 Meter, 4xC-13 Attached, 5 Meters, SFP+, 0.65 Meter, 10 Feet, 10 Meters, and 3 Meter.
DAC cables can follow longer paths:
Many of you might be wondering if the direct attach cable can transmit the data up to 10 meters or more! Yes, these cables can transfer the data to a more extended range depending on the data rate. The data rate is inversely proportional to the transmit range- the more the data rate, the less will be the range!
Direct Attach Data Cables are cost-effective!
DAC cables are more cost-effective as compared to the other ones. Using the two optical transceivers and fiber cable will not generate similar results as these DAC cables would!
Not only are these cost-effective and can cover long range but are reliable as well! As already mentioned, the DAC cables are factory terminated with a module that plugs into the networking equipment and generates a physical connection. Apart from the secure connection, the 26 to 28 AWG Copper material makes them rugged. Therefore, surviving through the damage and cracks, DAC cables are a way to connect peripherals swiftly. You can choose from the following options 7 Meter, ProCurve, 0.65M, 1.2 Meter, 20 Meter and 30 Meter and also claim a 2.5% discount!
