More Specification of Twinaxial Copper Cable

In the dynamic landscape of networking, robust and efficient connectivity is paramount. Cisco, a leader in networking solutions, introduces the QSFP-H40G-CU5M, a 5-meter Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable Plus (QSFP+) Direct Attach Passive Twinaxial Copper Cable designed for 40GBASE-CR4 applications. This guide aims to unravel the intricacies of the QSFP-H40G-CU5M, exploring its technical specifications, use cases, and the advantages it brings to modern networking environments.

  • The QSFP-H40G-CU5M Cisco 5M Direct Attach Passive Copper Cable is a high-speed, passive copper cable that is used to connect devices in data centers and enterprise networks. It is designed to work with Cisco's QSFP (quad small form-factor pluggable) ports, which are used in a variety of Cisco devices such as switches, routers, and storage arrays.
  • This cable is a direct attach copper cable, which means that it does not use any active components such as transceivers or amplifiers. Instead, it uses passive copper conductors to transmit data between devices. This design provides a cost-effective and reliable solution for high-speed data transfer.
  • The part is a 40 Gigabit cable, which means that it can transmit data at speeds of up to 40 Gbps. This makes it ideal for use in high-bandwidth applications such as data center interconnects, storage area networks, and high-performance computing clusters.
QSFP+ Twinaxial Cable

The QSFP-H40G-CU5M Cisco 5M Direct Attach Passive Copper Cable is a high-performance cable designed for use in Cisco data centers and enterprise networks. It is a passive copper cable that is capable of delivering up to 40 Gbps of data transfer speeds over a distance of 5 meters.

One of the key performance benefits of the product is its ability to provide high-speed data transfer. With a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps, it is ideal for use in high-bandwidth applications such as data center interconnects, storage area networks, and high-performance computing clusters.

Another performance benefit of the part is its low latency. Because it is a direct attach cable, it eliminates the need for transceivers and other intermediate components, resulting in lower latency and faster data transfer speeds.

The product also features high reliability and durability. The cable is made of high-quality materials and is designed to withstand the rigors of data center environments. Additionally, it is tested to meet Cisco's strict quality standards, ensuring that it will perform reliably in the field.
