The QSFP-H40G-AOC5M is a Cisco 5-meter active optical cable (AOC) that provides 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. It is a direct-attach cable, meaning it does not have any additional transceivers or components, and connects directly between devices.
This item is a Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) cable, which means it has four channels, each operating at 10 Gbps, allowing for a total of 40 Gbps of bandwidth. This cable is compliant with the 40GBASE-SR4 standard, which specifies the requirements for 40 Gbps over multimode fibers.
The cable is active, which means it has built-in electronics that provide signal amplification and conditioning, allowing it to maintain high performance over long distances. The 5-meter length of the cable allows for flexible installation options, making it suitable for use in data centers, high-performance computing, and other environments that require high-bandwidth connectivity.
This AOC cable is also a cost-effective solution for 40G connectivity as it does not require any additional transceiver or component and it is less expensive than traditional transceiver based solutions.
Features and Benefits
The QSFP-H40G-AOC5M Cisco 5-meter (16.4-foot) active optical cable (AOC) is designed to provide high-performance connectivity for data center environments. The cable is capable of supporting 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE) data transfer rates, which is four times faster than 10 GbE. This allows for fast data transfer between devices on the network, providing high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity.
One of the main advantages of using an active optical cable, as opposed to a passive one, is that it has active electronics built into the cable itself, which amplifies the signal and enables longer distances of transmission. This AOC is specifically designed as a direct-attach cable, meaning it connects directly to the QSFP ports on the devices and doesn't require any additional transceivers or optics.
The cable is compliant with industry standards such as IEEE 802.3ba and InfiniBand, which ensures compatibility with a wide range of devices and provides a high level of interoperability. It also supports RoHS, TIA/EIA, UL, and UL OFNP standards for safety and environmental compliance.
The model Cisco 5M 40GBASE Direct-Attach Active Optical Cable is designed to provide reliable connectivity for data center environments.
The active optical cable design of the QSFP-H40G-AOC5M uses active electronics built into the cable itself to amplify the signal and enable longer distances of transmission. This allows for a direct-attach cable, meaning it connects directly to the QSFP ports on the devices and doesn't require any additional transceivers or optics. This design simplifies the cabling and reduces the number of components that can fail in the connection.
The cable is compliant with industry standards such as IEEE 802.3ba and InfiniBand, and it is designed to be RoHS, TIA/EIA, UL, and UL OFNP compliant. This helps to ensure that the cable is of high quality and is compatible with a wide range of devices. This ensures that the cable meets the industry standards and guidelines for reliability, performance, and safety.
The cable is also designed to operate in a temperature-controlled environment, which helps to ensure that it will function properly in the data center environment. It is also designed to withstand electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) which can cause disruptions in the signal transmission.

About Refurbished 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!
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!
