This cable, with its 3-meter length and 10 gigabytes per Second (GBPS) speed, is designed for direct-attach applications. Specifically, it features 2 Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) connectors and utilizes passive Twinax Copper technology. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the intricacies of the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable, exploring its features, applications, and benefits.

What is SFP-H10GB-CU3M?

SFP-H10GB-CU3M is a high-performance cable assembly designed for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) applications. Let's break down its components and features:

Cable Length: 3 Meters

The 3-meter length of the cable provides flexibility in network configurations, allowing for optimal placement in various environments. This is particularly advantageous in data centers, server rooms, and networking setups where precise cable length is crucial.

Speed: 10 Gigabytes per Second (GBPS)

The cable's impressive 10 GBPS speed ensures rapid data transfer, making it suitable for high-bandwidth applications. This speed is essential for demanding tasks such as large data transfers, high-definition video streaming, and real-time data processing.

Connector Type: Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+)

Featuring SFP+ connectors, the cable is compatible with a wide range of networking equipment that supports this industry-standard interface. SFP+ connectors are known for their compact size and hot-swappable nature, making them ideal for densely populated networking environments.

Passive Twinax Copper Technology

The use of passive Twinax Copper technology in the cable assembly enhances its reliability and cost-effectiveness. Passive cables do not require additional power for signal amplification, simplifying their deployment and reducing overall power consumption.

Applications of SFP-H10GB-CU3M

The versatility of the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable makes it suitable for various applications across different industries. Here are some key areas where this cable excels:

Data Centers

In data center environments, where high-speed and reliable connectivity is paramount, the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable finds extensive use. Its 10 GBPS speed facilitates efficient data transmission between servers, switches, and storage devices.

Server Rooms

For interconnecting servers within a server room, the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable provides a seamless solution. Its 3-meter length ensures that servers can be appropriately spaced while maintaining high-speed connections.

Networking Infrastructure

The cable is an integral component of networking infrastructure, connecting switches, routers, and other network devices. Its compatibility with SFP+ interfaces makes it a versatile choice for various networking setups.

High-Performance Computing (HPC)

In High-Performance Computing environments, where massive computational power is required, the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable supports the fast and reliable transfer of large datasets, contributing to overall system efficiency.

Storage Area Networks (SAN)

Storage Area Networks rely on high-speed connections to ensure quick access to stored data. The SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable is well-suited for SAN applications, facilitating fast and reliable data transfers between storage devices.

Benefits of SFP-H10GB-CU3M

Understanding the benefits of the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable is crucial for making informed decisions about its deployment in networking infrastructure. Here are some key advantages:

High-Speed Data Transfer

The primary benefit of the SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable is its ability to support 10 GBPS data transfer rates. This ensures that data can be transmitted swiftly, reducing latency and improving overall network performance.

Cost-Effective Solution

Passive Twinax Copper technology contributes to the cable's cost-effectiveness. As a passive cable, it eliminates the need for additional power, reducing operational costs and simplifying deployment.

Versatility and Compatibility

The SFP-H10GB-CU3M cable's compatibility with SFP+ interfaces enhances its versatility. It can be seamlessly integrated into existing networking infrastructure, providing a reliable and high-performance connectivity solution.

Flexible Cable Length

With a 3-meter length, the cable offers flexibility in configuring network setups. This is essential in environments where precise cable lengths are required to optimize signal integrity and minimize interference.

High Performance

The SFP-H10GB-CU3M Cisco 3M Direct-Attach SFP+ Passive Twinax Cable is designed to provide high-performance data transfer over short distances. The cable uses twinaxial copper wire, which is known for its low signal loss and high noise immunity. The cable supports data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps, which is the standard speed for SFP+ connections. The cable is also passive, meaning it does not contain any active electronic components, which can improve the cable's reliability and reduce power consumption.

However, as this is a passive cable, it has a limited distance of 3 meters (9.8ft) over which it can transmit data at the full 10 Gbps, this is because the signal degrades as the distance increases. Also, the cable is not compatible with SFP+ ports that require active cables.

Reliability of Twinax Copper Cable

The SFP-H10GB-CU3M Cisco 3M Direct-Attach SFP+ Passive Twinax Cable is built to meet or exceed industry standards for performance and reliability, ensuring that it can withstand the demands of high-speed networking applications. The twinaxial cable design, which consists of two insulated copper wires surrounded by a common braided shield, provides a high level of signal integrity and protects against electromagnetic interference (EMI).

The passive design of the cable eliminates the need for external power sources, which can reduce the risk of power-related failures and improve the overall reliability of the cable. Additionally, the cable is RoHS-compliant, meaning it does not contain any hazardous materials that could potentially cause damage or failure.

Cisco is known for its high-quality networking equipment and this cable is no exception. Cisco's reputation for quality and reliability should give confidence in the product. However, the cable's reliability also depends on the installation and maintenance of the cable. Proper installation, handling, and maintenance of the cable can help ensure that it functions properly and lasts as long as possible.
