Benefits of Using 5 Meter Active Optical Cable

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= Cisco 5M Active Optical Breakout Cable is a high-performance, low-latency fiber optic cable designed to provide reliable and efficient connectivity for data center and high-performance computing applications. Here are some of the key benefits of using this cable:

  • High-speed connectivity: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= cable supports data transfer rates of up to 40Gbps, making it ideal for high-speed data center applications that require low latency and high bandwidth.
  • Low power consumption: Compared to traditional copper cables, the QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= cable consumes significantly less power, making it an energy-efficient and cost-effective solution for data center and high-performance computing environments.
  • Plug-and-play compatibility: The cable is designed to be compatible with a wide range of networking devices, including routers, switches, and servers, and it supports plug-and-play installation, making it easy to deploy and manage.
  • Longer transmission distances: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= cable uses fiber optic technology, which allows for longer transmission distances than traditional copper cables, without signal degradation or interference.
  • Enhanced reliability: The cable is designed with high-quality components and features such as low insertion loss and low crosstalk, which ensure reliable and consistent performance over time.
  • Scalability: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= cable can support multiple high-speed data channels simultaneously, making it an ideal solution for applications that require high bandwidth and scalability.
  • Reduced cable clutter: With its breakout design, the QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= cable can consolidate multiple fiber optic cables into a single, easy-to-manage cable, reducing cable clutter and simplifying cable management in data center environments.

Environmental Considerations for Breakout Network Cable

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M= Cisco 5M Active Optical Breakout Cable is a high-speed data transmission cable used in data center and network environments. When it comes to environmental considerations for this cable, there are a few factors to keep in mind:

  • Temperature: The cable should be used within the specified temperature range of 0 to 70 degrees Celsius. If the cable is exposed to temperatures outside of this range, it may not function properly or could even become damaged.
  • Humidity: The cable should be used in a relatively low humidity environment to prevent moisture from affecting the optical components. High humidity levels can cause the cable to malfunction or even fail.
  • EMI and RFI: Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) can affect the performance of the cable. To prevent this, the cable should be installed away from sources of electromagnetic radiation, such as motors or power transformers.
  • Physical stress: The cable should not be bent or twisted beyond its specified bend radius, as this can damage the fiber optic cables inside. Additionally, the cable should not be pulled or tugged excessively, as this can cause the connectors to become loose or the cable to break.
  • Proper disposal: At the end of its life cycle, the cable should be disposed of properly to minimize its impact on the environment. Many recycling programs exist for electronic waste, so it is important to find a reputable recycling center that can dispose of the cable in an environmentally responsible manner.

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!

Immense Reliability:

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!
