High-Speed Data Transmission

The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= Cisco 10M QSFP+ Active Network Cable is a high-speed data transmission cable designed to provide reliable and high-performance connectivity in data center environments. It is compatible with a range of Cisco switches and routers, and can support data transfer rates of up to 40 Gbps over a distance of 10 meters.

The cable uses a QSFP+ connector on both ends, which is a small form-factor pluggable (SFP) interface that supports four channels of data transmission. Each channel can operate at a rate of up to 10 Gbps, resulting in a total bandwidth of 40 Gbps for the cable.

One of the key advantages of the QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable is its active optical design, which uses a high-quality optical fiber core and advanced signal processing technology to minimize signal loss and distortion. This helps to ensure that data is transmitted reliably and without errors, even over long distances or in challenging environments.

In addition, the cable is designed with low power consumption in mind, making it a cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice for high-speed data transmission applications.

InfiniBand Applications of QSFP+ Network Cable

InfiniBand is a high-speed interconnect technology used for connecting various computing devices, such as servers, storage systems, and high-performance computing clusters. The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= Cisco 10M QSFP+ Active Network Cable is a high-performance cable designed to support InfiniBand and other high-speed data center applications.

Here are some details about the InfiniBand applications of this cable:

  • High-Speed Data Transfer: InfiniBand is designed to support high-speed data transfer between computing devices. The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable supports data transfer rates of up to 40 Gbps, making it ideal for high-performance computing applications that require fast data transfer.
  • Low Latency: InfiniBand offers low latency, which is the time it takes for data to travel between two computing devices. The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable has a low latency, which is important for applications that require real-time data processing, such as financial trading or scientific simulations.
  • Cluster Computing: InfiniBand is often used in high-performance computing clusters, which are collections of interconnected computers that work together to perform complex computations. The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable can be used to connect servers and storage systems in these clusters, allowing them to communicate with each other quickly and efficiently.
  • Storage Area Networks (SANs): InfiniBand can also be used in storage area networks, which are networks that provide access to shared storage devices. The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable can be used to connect servers and storage devices in a SAN, enabling fast data transfer between them.
  • Machine Learning: InfiniBand is becoming increasingly popular in machine learning applications, which require large amounts of data to be processed quickly. The QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable can be used to connect servers and GPUs in machine learning clusters, enabling fast data transfer between them.

Ensure the Reliability and Performance

The Cisco QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= is a 10-meter long, QSFP+ active optical network cable designed to provide high-speed connectivity between network devices such as switches, routers, and servers. To ensure its reliability and performance, it is essential to follow certain guidelines and best practices when installing and using the cable.

Here are some tips to ensure the reliability and performance of the Cisco QSFP-H40G-AOC10M=:

  • Proper handling: The cable should be handled with care to prevent damage to the connector and optical fibers. Avoid bending, twisting or kinking the cable, and do not pull it by the cable itself. Instead, grip the connectors when connecting or disconnecting the cable.
  • Compatibility: The Cisco QSFP-H40G-AOC10M= cable is designed to work with Cisco networking equipment that supports QSFP+ interfaces. Ensure that your network equipment is compatible with this cable before making a purchase.
  • Environmental conditions: Ensure that the environmental conditions in which the cable is used are within the recommended range. The temperature should be between 0°C and 70°C (32°F to 158°F) and humidity should be below 85%.
  • Cable routing: The cable should be routed carefully to prevent it from being crushed, pinched or damaged. Avoid running it close to power cables, as this can cause electromagnetic interference that can degrade the signal quality.
  • Regular inspection: Regularly inspect the cable and connectors for signs of damage or wear. If you notice any damage or defects, replace the cable immediately to avoid any potential issues.
  • Proper cleaning: Keep the connectors clean by wiping them with a lint-free cloth. Do not use any solvents or cleaning fluids, as these can damage the connector and optical fibers.

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 - Network Cables

Network cables are what make it possible to share It resources in a network. Whether home, office, or in a data center, networking using cables still remains popular over wireless protocols such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. We use different network cables to enable resource sharing, such as memory devices, printers, scanners, and other resources. Networking is the only way to converge resources and make file sharing and team collaboration easy. If you are looking for network cables to achieve that, then you are in the right place.

Types of Network Cables

Network cables, also known as Ethernet cables, are of three different types: coaxial, fiber optic, and twisted-pair copper cables. The last two types are the commonly used cable types. We will, therefore, dig deeper into them shortly. Coaxial cables are not widely used in networking but still remain very popular in telecommunication.

Fiber Optic Cables

Structurally, optical cables comprise the core, cladding, buffer, and jacket on the outer part. Of great interest is the core material, which can be glass or plastic. Signals travel in this medium at the speed of light over long and short distances. Due to this high data rate, optical cables are becoming more famous in networking than other network cables.

The other layers of this cable work together to maintain its efficiency. Through cladding, the light is totally internally reflected in the core. The buffer prevents any possible leakage of light. The jacket, being the outer layer, offers protection to the cable against mechanical damage.

Twisted Pair Copper Cable

Almost all modern computers at home or office networks use twisted-pair cables. The cable consists of 8 individually coated and twisted in pairs copper wires bundled together in one. The twisted-pair cables can either be shielded or unshielded. Because of shielding in the shielded and twisted pair cables, they experience less noise and have low EMI resistance.

Network Cable Connectors

The connectors of any Ethernet cable depend on the intended application. Your home computer networking might only need the standard 8 terminal clips to connect to a network. That is not usually the case when considering large enterprises and data centers where different IT equipment is interconnected. There may be a need for network adapters and other complex cables such as 8 LEAD and JG263A HPE network cables.

Network Cables Length

In any networking task, use the right cable length. That will not only make your system look organized but also deliver better performance. Get rid of any unnecessarily long cables. If the work can be done with 15-meter-long cables, got for it and not a 20-meter-long cable. If the source and target are too close or placed side by side, you are better off if you use 1.5-meter-long cables. The resulting network will look neat without cables tangling everywhere.

Sourcing Ethernet Cables from Reputable Supplier

Shopping for Ethernet cables is not a straightforward process. Not all cables are manufactured with the same quality, and that affects the bandwidth. Make the right decision to buy CR4 cable or optical cable for your networking business from ALLHDD. We source only quality cables from reputable vendors, and all of them come with warranties.
