Cable Specifications and Features

The QSFP-H40G-AOC1M is a 1-meter long, active optical network cable manufactured by Cisco Systems. This cable is designed to support high-speed data transmission in data center and enterprise network applications.

Here are some of the specifications and features of the QSFP-H40G-AOC1M:

  • Cable Type: Active Optical Cable (AOC)
  • Connector Type: QSFP+ to QSFP+
  • Data Rate: 40 Gbps
  • Maximum Cable Length: 100 meters
  • Fiber Type: Multi-mode fiber (MMF)
  • Wavelength: 850 nm
  • Power Supply Voltage: 3.3V
  • Operating Temperature Range: 0°C to 70°C

Active optical cables (AOCs) are a type of cable that use optical fiber to transmit data over distances up to 100 meters. They are a popular choice for high-speed networking applications because they offer high bandwidth, low latency, and low power consumption.

The QSFP-H40G-AOC1M cable uses multi-mode fiber (MMF) to support data transmission at a rate of 40 Gbps. This makes it suitable for use in high-performance data center environments where large amounts of data need to be transferred quickly.

The cable is also designed to be hot-swappable, which means it can be replaced or removed without powering down the network device it is connected to. This makes it easy to replace faulty cables or add additional connections to a network without causing downtime.

Installation and Configuration of the Cable

QSFP-H40G-AOC1M is a Cisco Active Optical Cable (AOC) with a Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) connector on each end. It supports data rates up to 40 Gbps and is commonly used for high-speed network connectivity in data centers.

Installation and configuration of the QSFP-H40G-AOC1M cable typically involves the following steps:

  • Physically connect the cable to the devices: The QSFP-H40G-AOC1M cable has a QSFP connector on each end. 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.
  • Verify the cable connections: Verify that the cable is properly connected to both devices and that the QSFP ports are enabled and configured correctly.
  • Power on the devices: Power on both devices and verify that they can communicate with each other over the cable.
  • Configure the devices: If necessary, configure the devices to use the QSFP-H40G-AOC1M cable for high-speed network connectivity. This may involve configuring the QSFP ports to use a specific data rate, setting up VLANs or other network settings, or configuring any necessary network protocols.
  • Test the connection: Test the network connection between the devices to ensure that it is working properly. This may involve running network diagnostic tools, monitoring network traffic, or performing other tests to verify that the cable is functioning correctly.

Tips for Maintaining 1M Active Network Cable

QSFP-H40G-AOC1M is a type of active network cable manufactured by Cisco. It is a 1-meter cable designed to transmit data at a speed of up to 40Gbps.

An active network cable contains active components such as transceivers and integrated circuits that boost the signal strength and improve the cable's overall performance. This is in contrast to passive cables that only transmit the signal and do not contain any active components.

To maintain the performance of your 1M active network cable, here are some tips:

  • Avoid bending the cable excessively or tightly. This can damage the cable and affect its performance.
  • Keep the cable away from sharp objects, such as scissors or knives. If the cable gets cut or punctured, it may not function correctly.
  • Keep the cable away from sources of electromagnetic interference (EMI), such as radios, microwaves, or other electronic devices. EMI can cause signal loss or disrupt the cable's performance.
  • Do not pull the cable forcefully, as this can damage the connectors or cause the cable to detach from the device.
  • Store the cable in a dry and cool place when not in use. Excessive heat or moisture can damage the cable.
  • Inspect the cable regularly for any signs of wear and tear. If you notice any damage, replace the cable immediately.
