Understanding the SFP-H10GB-CU3M 3-Meter 10Gbps Direct-Attach Copper Cable

In the fast-paced world of networking, the demand for high-speed data transfer is ever-growing. One crucial component contributing to this need is the SFP-H10GB-CU3M, a 3-meter 10 Gigabyte per Second (Gbps) Direct-Attach Copper Cable Assembly. This description aims to provide a detailed understanding of this essential networking accessory, breaking down its key features, applications, and benefits.

What is SFP-H10GB-CU3M?

SFP-H10GB-CU3M is a specific type of cable assembly designed for high-speed data transmission in networking environments. Let's break down its name to understand its features:

SFP-H10GB-CU3M: SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable): SFP refers to a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver module commonly used for network connectivity.
H10GB: Indicates the cable's compatibility with 10 Gigabytes per Second (Gbps) networks, highlighting its ability to handle high-speed data transfer.
CU3M: Stands for Copper (CU) and specifies the cable length, which in this case, is 3 meters.

Key Features of SFP-H10GB-CU3M 3M Direct-Attach Cable
  • Direct-Attach Cable Assembly:
    • The "Direct-Attach" feature implies that this cable connects devices directly without the need for additional components like transceivers.
    • This design reduces latency and enhances overall data transmission efficiency.
  • 10 Gigabyte Per Second (Gbps) Speed:
    • SFP-H10GB-CU3M is optimized for 10Gbps data transfer, meeting the high-speed requirements of modern networks.
    • This capability is crucial for applications such as data centers, cloud computing, and high-performance computing.
  • SFP+ Connectors:
    • Equipped with SFP+ connectors, the cable ensures compatibility with devices that support this specific interface.
    • SFP+ connectors are widely used in networking equipment due to their small form factor and hot-swappable nature.
  • Passive Twinax Copper Cable:
    • The cable utilizes Twinax Copper technology, a type of cable that consists of two twisted copper conductors, providing a balanced signal transmission.
    • Being passive implies that the cable does not require external power for signal amplification.
Applications in the Real WorldData Centers

In the dynamic landscape of data centers, where massive volumes of data are processed and transferred daily, the SFP-H10GB-CU3M finds its home. Its high data transfer rate and reliable connectivity make it an ideal choice for interconnecting servers, storage systems, and networking equipment within the data center environment.

Enterprise Networks

Enterprise networks, characterized by the need for high-speed and secure communication, benefit from the SFP-H10GB-CU3M's capabilities. Whether used in connecting switches, routers, or other networking devices, this cable ensures a fast and stable connection, contributing to the overall efficiency of the enterprise network.

Telecommunication Networks

Telecommunication networks, which form the backbone of global communication, rely on high-performance cables like the SFP-H10GB-CU3M. Its ability to transmit data at 10 GBPS ensures that voice, video, and data signals traverse the network seamlessly, meeting the demands of modern communication services.

Cloud Computing

In cloud computing environments, where data transfer between servers is constant, the 10Gbps speed of this cable ensures optimal performance.

The compact form factor of SFP+ connectors also allows for efficient use of space in cloud infrastructure.High-Performance Computing (HPC)SFP-H10GB-CU3M is well-suited for high-performance computing clusters, providing the necessary bandwidth for parallel processing and data-intensive tasks.Benefits of SFP-H10GB-CU3M
  • Cost-Effective Solution:
    • As a passive direct-attach cable, SFP-H10GB-CU3M is a cost-effective alternative to optical transceivers and fiber optic cables, making it an economical choice for short-distance connections.
  • Ease of Installation:
    • The hot-pluggable nature of SFP+ connectors simplifies the installation process, allowing users to connect and disconnect devices without powering down the entire network.
  • Low Latency:
    • Direct-attach cables inherently offer lower latency compared to solutions involving additional transceivers, making them suitable for applications where minimal delay is critical.
  • Reliability:
    • The use of copper conductors and passive technology enhances the reliability of the cable assembly, reducing the risk of signal degradation over time.
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.
