More Information of this Item

QSFP-100G-AOC10M is a Cisco product that is a 100 Gigabit Ethernet direct attach cable (DAC) for high-speed data transfer. It uses the QSFP (Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable) interface, which is a type of transceiver used to connect different networking devices. The "100G" in the product name indicates that it supports data transfer speeds of up to 100 Gbps (gigabits per second). The "AOC" in the product name stands for "Active Optical Cable", which means that it uses optical fibers rather than copper wires to transmit data. The "10M" in the product name refers to the length of the cable, which is 10 meters (about 33 feet). It is used to connect network devices that have QSFP ports such as routers, switches, servers and network cards, it is a cost-effective and low-power alternative to transceivers and optical fibers.


The QSFP-100G-AOC10M is a Cisco 100 Gigabit Ethernet Active Optical Cable (AOC) that is designed to provide reliable, high-speed connectivity between networking devices. AOCs like the model are generally considered to be more reliable than traditional copper cables because they use optical fibers to transmit data, which are less susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and other types of noise that can degrade signal quality.

Additionally, AOCs like the model typically use wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) technology which allows multiple signals to be transmitted over a single fiber, reducing the number of fibers required to achieve high-bandwidth connections, this in turn can lower the chance of broken fibers, which can increase the overall cable reliability.

It's also worth noting that the model is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3bm standard and is also RoHS and MSA compliant, this can ensure that the cable is up to industry standards and that it's been tested for quality and reliability.

Benefits of Using this Cable

This model Cisco 100 Gigabit Ethernet Active Optical Cable provides a number of benefits for short-distance data center and high-performance computing environments. Some of the key benefits include:

  • High-Speed Connectivity: The model provides a 100 Gbps connection between two QSFP ports on networking devices. This allows for extremely fast data transfer speeds, which is critical in high-performance computing environments where large amounts of data need to be processed quickly.
  • Low Power Consumption: The active optical cable (AOC) uses low-power transceivers that consume less power compared to copper cables, this makes them more energy efficient and less prone to overheating.
  • High Reliability: The optical fibers used in AOCs are not susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and can provide faster data transfer speeds over longer distances without signal degradation.
  • Compact size and flexibility: The model has a compact size and flexibility allows for easy installation and deployment in data center environments where space is often at a premium.
  • Industry Standard Compliance: The model is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3bm standard for 100 Gigabit Ethernet, and also RoHS and MSA compliant which ensures its compatibility with other devices and equipment.
  • Cost-Effective: The QSFP-100G-AOC10M is a cost-effective solution for short-distance, high-bandwidth data center networking.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Cables - Direct Attach Cable

Direct Attach Cable, also known as the DAC cable, connects the equipment and peripherals in a data network. All the active networking equipment, including the data storage devices, switches, routers, servers, and more, will be connected and synched using the DAC cables. As far as the usage is concerned, these direct attached copper cables are getting fame in the data storage centers and the industry sector and server rooms: the reason being the cost-effective, efficient, and easier way to form the connection.

Direct Attach Copper Cables Are Terminated with Modules:

DAC cables are terminated from the manufacturer with the modules, which can easily connect the active peripheral equipment and secure an electrical connection. These modules are factory terminated and cannot be removed from the DAC cables afterward. Hence these wires possess a fixed length.

There are plenty of types and models available for the direct attach cables, including the direct, breakout, active and passive. As mentioned in the name, the direct cable can form a direct stable connection among the two peripherals, while breakout can connect one port with the four others. On the other hand, an active DAC cable will transmit signals to a little longer distance than the passive ones.

We, at ALLHDD, have got you all the range DAC cables for you to shop from! Choose from the following sub-categories: 0.5 Meter, 1 Meter, 16.4 Feet, 2 Meter, 4xC-13 Attached, 5 Meters, SFP+, 0.65 Meter, 10 Feet, 10 Meters, and 3 Meter.

DAC cables can follow longer paths:

Many of you might be wondering if the direct attach cable can transmit the data up to 10 meters or more! Yes, these cables can transfer the data to a more extended range depending on the data rate. The data rate is inversely proportional to the transmit range- the more the data rate, the less will be the range!

Direct Attach Data Cables are cost-effective!

DAC cables are more cost-effective as compared to the other ones. Using the two optical transceivers and fiber cable will not generate similar results as these DAC cables would!

Immense Reliability:

Not only are these cost-effective and can cover long range but are reliable as well! As already mentioned, the DAC cables are factory terminated with a module that plugs into the networking equipment and generates a physical connection. Apart from the secure connection, the 26 to 28 AWG Copper material makes them rugged. Therefore, surviving through the damage and cracks, DAC cables are a way to connect peripherals swiftly. You can choose from the following options 7 Meter, ProCurve, 0.65M, 1.2 Meter, 20 Meter and 30 Meter and also claim a 2.5% discount!
