Comparison between

The Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= and 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable are both high-speed cables used to connect network devices. Here are some of the key differences and similarities between the two:

  • Speed: Both cables are designed to support high-speed data transmission, with a maximum data rate of 100Gbps. This makes them suitable for use in data centers and other high-bandwidth applications.
  • Cable Length: The Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= is a 2 meter cable, while the 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable is also available in lengths up to 5 meters. The length of the cable needed will depend on the specific deployment scenario.
  • Connector Type: The Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= features QSFP connectors on both ends, while the 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable features QSFP and SFP+ connectors on either end. This difference in connector types could impact compatibility with different devices and deployment scenarios.
  • Cable Type: The Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= is a passive copper cable, while the 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable is also a passive copper cable but features 4 lanes. The number of lanes can impact the maximum distance that the cable can transmit data, with more lanes allowing for longer distances.
  • Price: The Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= is generally more expensive than the 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable. This difference in price could impact the decision to select one cable over the other.

Cable management and organization

Proper cable management and organization of the Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= 2 Meter 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable is essential for ensuring a reliable and efficient network. Here are some tips for managing and organizing this cable:

  • Route the cable properly: When routing the QSFP-100G-CU2M= cable, ensure that it is not twisted or bent beyond its minimum bend radius, which could cause signal degradation or damage to the cable. Use cable ties or clips to secure the cable to racks or trays, and avoid routing it near sources of electromagnetic interference.
  • Label the cable: To make it easy to identify the cable, label it with its unique identifier or description, such as its part number or length. This can help when troubleshooting or performing maintenance tasks.
  • Plan for future growth: Consider the potential for future growth in the network and plan for additional cables that may need to be added in the future. Leave sufficient space in cable trays or racks for additional cables, and plan for proper cable management when adding new cables.
  • Test the cable: Before deploying the cable, test it to ensure that it is functioning properly. Use appropriate diagnostic tools or software to verify the connection and troubleshoot any issues that arise.
  • Use appropriate cable management tools: To ensure that the cable is properly organized and managed, use appropriate cable management tools such as cable ties, clips, and racks. This can help prevent cable tangles, damage, and tripping hazards.

Installation and setup instructions

Here are some general installation and setup instructions for the Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= 2 Meter 100GBASE-CR4 Passive QSFP Copper Cable:

  1. Ensure compatibility: Make sure that the cable is compatible with the devices that you plan to connect. The Cisco QSFP-100G-CU2M= is designed to work with devices that support the 100GBASE-CR4 standard.
  2. Power off the devices: Before connecting the cable, power off the devices that you plan to connect it to. This will help prevent damage to the equipment and ensure a safe installation.
  3. Connect the cable: Connect one end of the cable to the QSFP port on one device, and the other end to the QSFP port on the other device. Make sure that the cable is properly aligned and firmly inserted into the ports.
  4. Power on the devices: After the cable is connected, power on the devices and allow them to boot up. Once the devices are operational, they should recognize the cable and establish a connection.
  5. Verify the connection: Use appropriate diagnostic tools or software to verify that the connection is working properly. Check for any errors or warnings, and troubleshoot any issues that arise.
  6. Monitor the connection: After the connection is established, monitor it regularly to ensure that it remains stable and reliable. Check for any performance issues, errors, or other indicators of problems.

About New Bulk Pack Products

New Bulk Pack products come with clamshell boxes and do not have any manufacturer warranty. Many times manufacturers disassemble whole units to use parts or pulled from a new system. Typically, this product doesn't come with software or instructions unless indicated and no Manufacturer’s genuine warranty. You can take note these are not brand new products.

Cables - Optical Cable

Many people are currently talking about fiber optic cables. This new invention is the future of computer networking, taking over from all-time copper wire cables. If you are looking forward to setting up a new data center, or you just want an upgrade, then optical fiber cable is the way to go. It might seem like a new invention, but the cables are all out there. You can get any networking cable and interfacing cable you need for your application.

Types of Fiber Optical Cables for Networking

We may not exploit all the types of these optical cables out there, but we must bring it to your attention that you will always get what you need. There are two major categories of these cables depending on the core material. We have either plastic or glass cables, but these should not make any difference if you just want a home or office networking.

The two major categories are broken down into small groups of interest depending on the end connectors. The list of subgroups is endless, but we will quickly mention the commonly used ones. On the list, we have LC-LC cable, InfiniBand, ProLiant, Patch cable, and standard fiber optical cables. Please note that the first three items on the list are special-purpose cables commonly used in data centers.

Get Greater Bandwidth with Optical Cable

Fiber optical cable or LC cable was invented to replace copper cables because of their limited bandwidth. As technology advances, there is a need for a higher data rate than copper wires can handle. Fiber optic cable has more bandwidth compared to copper conductors of the same diameter. It never matters whether you have single-mode or multimode fiber cables; your applications are always at the top.

Higher Data Transfer Rates

Fiber optical cables are also champions when it comes to data speeds. Unlike copper conductors that rely on electrons to transfer data, fiber cables use light. So, the theoretical data rate is the speed of light. It can deliver data at that high speed while maintaining integrity. The resistance of fiber cables to environmental and magnetic interference with the signal is also remarkable!

Cheaper in the Long Run

What turns people away from fiber cables is the initial purchase price, but that is predicted to fall in the coming years. Despite that, these cables are very much cheaper in the end because of almost no maintenance cost. They also come with many advantages over their distant rivals, copper cables, worth the cost. What you actually pay for when you buy an optical cable is the performance and technology used in the manufacturing.

What is the Manufacturer/Brand Warranty?

In general, a manufacturer's warranty service/support is a written guarantee to the buyer of a product. Its terms assure the replacement or repair of the product, if necessary, within a specified period after the purchase (2-5 years depending on the brand/manufacturer). It is typically included in the price of the product. Products are brand new and sealed and the original manufacturer box is complete with the Manufacturer's genuine warranty. For most of the brand new/retail products that come with the manual and box, exceptions may apply (i.e., Cisco, Juniper Networks).

For the server parts (i.e., Dell, HPE) to get Full coverage of the warranty server must have a full 3- 5 years warranty. However, ALLHDD.COM will cover the warranty duration if any Manufacturer doesn't support the advertised warranty and there is no refund for those.
