More Information of this Item

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC1M= is a Cisco QSFP (quad small form-factor pluggable) to 4 SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable plus) active optical breakout cable. It is a type of transceiver module that allows for the connection of four 10 Gb/s SFP+ interfaces to a single QSFP port on a network switch or router. The cable is active, meaning it contains electronics that help to amplify and regenerate the signal, allowing for longer distances between the devices being connected. The "AOC" in the product name stands for "active optical cable." The "1M" in the name indicates that the cable is 1 meter long.

Features and Benefits

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC1M= Cisco QSFP to 4 SFP+ Active Optical breakout Cable is designed for high performance applications as it provides a high density of connections and high bandwidth capabilities.

First, the cable allows for a higher density of connections by converting a single QSFP+ port into four SFP+ ports. This means that more connections can be made in a given area, providing more flexibility and scalability in network connections.

Second, the cable supports speeds of up to 10 Gbps per SFP+ port, providing a total aggregate bandwidth of 40 Gbps. This high bandwidth capability allows for faster data transfer and reduced latency, making it well-suited for high-performance computing environments such as data centers where large amounts of data need to be quickly and efficiently transferred.

Third, the cable is active optical cable which means that it uses optical signals for data transfer instead of electrical signals, this provide longer distance (up to 100m) and less power consumption which makes it ideal for data center environments.

Finally, the cable is hot-pluggable, meaning it can be inserted or removed while the device is still powered on. This allows for easy maintenance and upgrades, minimizing downtime and increasing the overall reliability of the network.

Reliability of Fiber Optic Cable

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC1M= Cisco QSFP to 4 SFP+ Active Optical breakout Cable is designed to be highly reliable in a variety of network environments.

First, the cable uses active optical technology, which uses optical signals for data transfer instead of electrical signals. This provides a more stable and reliable signal over longer distances and in noisy environments, reducing the risk of signal loss or interference.

Second, the cable has a high bandwidth capability of up to 10 Gbps per SFP+ port, providing a total aggregate bandwidth of 40 Gbps. This allows for faster data transfer and reduces the risk of bottlenecks, which can cause delays and disruptions in network performance.

Third, the cable is hot-pluggable, meaning it can be inserted or removed while the device is still powered on. This allows for easy maintenance and upgrades, minimizing downtime and increasing the overall reliability of the network.

Fourthly, the cable is manufactured by Cisco which is a well-known brand in the networking industry known for their high-quality and reliable products.

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!
