High-Speed Data Transmission

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M Cisco 5M Active Optical Breakout Cable is a high-speed data transmission cable used in data centers and high-performance computing environments. This cable is designed to provide reliable and fast data transmission between networking equipment, such as switches, routers, and servers.

Here are some key features of the QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cable:

  • High-speed transmission: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cable can transmit data at a rate of 40Gbps. This high-speed transmission makes it ideal for use in data centers where high volumes of data need to be transmitted quickly.
  • Active optical technology: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cable uses active optical technology, which means that it uses a combination of electrical and optical signals to transmit data. This technology ensures that the data is transmitted quickly and with minimal loss.
  • Breakout cable: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cable is a breakout cable, which means that it can be used to connect four 10Gbps ports to a single QSFP+ port. This allows for greater flexibility in networking equipment and makes it easier to manage and organize cables.
  • Length: The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cable is 5 meters long, which makes it suitable for use in data centers where networking equipment may be spread out across a large area.

Installation Guide for Optical Breakout Cable

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M Cisco 5M Active Optical Breakout Cable is a high-speed, low-latency cable that is used to connect switches, routers, and other network devices in data centers and high-performance computing environments. This cable is designed to transmit data at a rate of 40Gbps and can be used to break out a 40Gbps QSFP+ port into four 10Gbps SFP+ ports, allowing for greater flexibility in network design.

Here are the steps to install the QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M Cisco 5M Active Optical Breakout Cable:

  • Turn off the power to the devices you will be connecting the cable to. This is important to prevent any damage to the devices during installation.
  • Locate the QSFP+ port on the device that you will be connecting the cable to. This is typically a rectangular port with four small openings on one end.
  • Remove the protective caps from the QSFP+ port and the four SFP+ ports that you will be connecting the cable to. Be careful not to touch the connectors with your fingers, as this can cause damage to the cable.
  • Align the QSFP+ connector on the cable with the QSFP+ port on the device, making sure that the notches on the connector and port are properly aligned.
  • Gently push the QSFP+ connector into the QSFP+ port until you hear a click. This indicates that the connector is securely connected.
  • Connect the four SFP+ connectors on the other end of the cable to the SFP+ ports on the other device. Make sure that each connector is properly aligned and securely connected.
  • Turn on the power to the devices and verify that the connection is working properly.

Advancements in 5M Active Optical Cable

The QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M Cisco 5M Active Optical Breakout Cable is a type of optical cable that is designed to transmit data at high speeds over short distances. It is used in data centers and other high-performance computing applications where there is a need for fast and reliable data transmission.

In recent years, there have been several advancements in the design and technology of QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cables. Here are some of the notable advancements:

  • Higher Data Transfer Rates: One of the most significant advancements in QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cables is the increase in data transfer rates. The latest cables can transfer data at speeds of up to 40 Gbps, which is four times faster than the original 10 Gbps version. This increase in speed has been made possible by improvements in the design of the cable and the use of more advanced optical components.
  • Longer Distances: Another advancement in QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cables is the ability to transmit data over longer distances. The latest cables can transmit data over distances of up to 100 meters, which is a significant improvement over the original 5-meter version. This improvement has been made possible by advances in the design of the optical components and the use of more advanced manufacturing techniques.
  • Lower Power Consumption: The latest QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cables are designed to consume less power than earlier versions. This reduction in power consumption has been achieved by using more efficient optical components and by optimizing the cable's overall design.
  • Compatibility: The latest QSFP-4X10G-AOC5M cables are fully compatible with a wide range of devices and systems, including switches, routers, and servers. This compatibility has been achieved by ensuring that the cables meet industry-standard specifications and by conducting extensive testing to ensure interoperability with various devices.

About New Bulk Pack Products

New Bulk Pack products come with clamshell boxes and do not have any manufacturer warranty. Many times manufacturers disassemble whole units to use parts or pulled from a new system. Typically, this product doesn't come with software or instructions unless indicated and no Manufacturer’s genuine warranty. You can take note these are not brand new 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!
