- High-Quality Transmission: The cable is made of high-quality materials, and the signal transmission is optimized to ensure that there is minimal signal loss or degradation. This ensures that the data is transmitted reliably and accurately, with no errors or distortions.
- Plug-and-Play Installation: The Cisco QSFP-100G-AOC25M= 100Gbps 25m QSFP28 Optical Cable is designed to be plug-and-play, which means that it can be connected to compatible devices without any configuration or setup required. This makes it easy to install and use, even for non-technical users.
- Energy Efficient: The cable is designed to be energy efficient, which means that it uses less power than other cables to transmit data. This helps to reduce energy costs and makes it an environmentally friendly option.
Troubleshooting common issues
The Cisco QSFP-100G-AOC25M= 100GBPS 25M QSFP28 Optical Cable is a high-speed, high-bandwidth data transmission cable used to connect network switches, routers, and servers. However, like any other technology, it may encounter some issues. Here are some common issues and how to troubleshoot them:
Cable not detected or recognized: If the cable is not detected by the device or recognized as a valid QSFP module, it may be due to a faulty cable, port issue, or firmware compatibility issue. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following steps:
- Check that the cable is securely connected to the device.
- Verify that the cable is compatible with the device and firmware version.
- Try connecting the cable to a different port or device to isolate the issue.
- Check for any error messages in the device logs.
Low or no signal strength: If the cable is connected, but the signal strength is low or non-existent, it may be due to distance limitations or a faulty cable. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following steps:
- Verify that the cable length does not exceed the maximum supported distance for the cable.
- Check for any physical damage or kinks in the cable that may affect signal strength.
- Check the device logs for any error messages related to signal strength.
Slow transfer speeds: If the transfer speeds are slower than expected, it may be due to network congestion or compatibility issues. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following steps:
- Verify that the devices connected to the cable are configured correctly and have the necessary bandwidth to support the transfer speeds.
- Check for any network congestion or bottleneck issues that may affect transfer speeds.
- Verify that the cable is compatible with the devices and firmware version.
Cable not working after device reboot: If the cable stops working after a device reboot, it may be due to a firmware or configuration issue. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following steps:
- Verify that the device firmware is up to date and compatible with the cable.
- Check that the device configuration settings are correct and have not been changed after the reboot.
- Try power cycling the device and reconnecting the cable.
