The SFP-H10GB-CU3M is a Cisco-branded 3-meter (9.8 feet) direct-attach SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable) passive twinax cable. It is used to connect SFP+ ports on Cisco network devices, such as switches and routers, to other SFP+ devices or network equipment. The "direct-attach" design of the cable means that it connects directly to the SFP+ ports without the need for additional transceivers. The cable is passive, meaning it does not contain any active electronic components, and it uses twinaxial cable, which is a type of copper cable that consists of two insulated copper wires surrounded by a common braided shield. This cable supports data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. Additionally, The part is compliant with RoHS, which means that it is free of hazardous materials.
The SFP-H10GB-CU3M Cisco 3M Direct-Attach SFP+ Passive Twinax Cable is designed to support data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. This makes it suitable for use in high-speed network environments, such as data centers, that require fast data transfer between devices. The cable is also designed to be low-power and energy-efficient, as it does not contain any active electronic components.
In terms of distance, it's limited to 3 meter, which is the standard distance limit for direct-attach twinax cables, which is a trade-off for their high speed and low power consumption.
The part cable is also built to meet industry standards for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) to ensure reliable and stable operation in a variety of network environments. Overall, This model is a reliable and high-performance cable option for connecting SFP+ devices in 10 Gbps network environments.
Reliability of Twinax Copper Cable
The SFP-H10GB-CU3M Cisco 3M Direct-Attach SFP+ Passive Twinax Cable is designed to meet or exceed industry standards for performance and reliability. The twinaxial cable used in the construction of the cable is a robust and durable type of copper cable that is resistant to interference and signal loss. The cable is also built to Cisco's high standards for quality and durability.
The passive design of the cable does not contain any active electronic components, which reduces the potential for failure. This design also means that the cable does not require an external power source, which can increase its overall reliability by reducing the number of potential points of failure.
As with any networking equipment, the reliability of This model cable will depend on how well it's been installed and maintained. Proper installation, such as ensuring that the cable is not bent or kinked, and regular cleaning and inspection can help to ensure that the cable is working optimally and that any potential issues are caught and addressed early on.
Additionally, the cable is tested by Cisco to ensure compliance with industry standards, and it's backed by Cisco's warranty, which can provide additional peace of mind.

About Refurbished Products
Twinaxial cable (also known as Twinax cable) is similar to the coaxial cable, with the only difference being that the former has two inner conductors. These cables were not popular until after 2013, when their applications in differential signaling showed a significant increase. Twinaxial cables are used for high-speed data transfer over short distances, usually not more than 10 meters.
Twinax Cable Length and Performance
Most of these cable types are 10-gigabit Ethernet cables and are classified as either passive or active. Active Twinax cables, as the name suggests, have active electronic components that that are encased at the connector terminal to improve signal quality. This is necessary for applications that are data sensitive. A passive twinaxial cable, on the other hand, has no components and only consists of the conductor and insulation casing. Generally, longer cables are made active because of the long distance the signal has to travel, and shorter cables are passive. But that depends on the manufacturer and brand.
Twinax cables are commonly used for connecting devices through the SFP+ interface ports. They are desired for this because of the high data throughput of up to 10GBps and low latency. A Twinax cable is many times better than other cabling standards such as CAT7 and CAT6. They also draw minimal power to operate, even for active Twinax cables.
What Materials are Used in Twinax Cable?
These cables were constructed mainly from copper wires. That was before the commercial use of fiber optic cables. Currently, you can choose between Twinax copper cable or Twinax optical cable. By comparison, optical cables are better performers and are also more expensive. So, your choice will be limited to what you have on your budget.
Twinax and Coaxial, How Do They Compare?
It is possible to get confused between these two commonly used types of cables. They are very similar in many ways, but the notable difference that sets the twinaxial cable apart is the two conductors instead of one. This construction makes these cables have better signal integrity in short-range applications. When shopping, you will have to know this difference and consider other factors as well.
