As people are expecting more information to be available at their fingertips, fiber network deployment should be quicker and easier. Active optical cable(AOC) is a good solution to this issue. AOC is a cable assembly which is permanently terminated with QSFP+ modules at both ends. It use electrical-to-optical conversion on the cable ends to improve speed and distance performance of the cable without sacrificing compatibility with standard electrical interfaces for short-range multi-lane data communication and interconnect applications. Nowadays, the market of AOC keeps growing has a bright future, especially in 40G Ethernet. This post will mainly introduce one 40G AOC type—40G QSFP+ to 8LC Breakout AOC.
40G QSFP+ to 8LC Breakout AOC Overview
QSFP+ to 8LC breakout AOC is a high performance, short-reach interconnect solution supporting 40G Ethernet, fiber channel with low power consumption. It is compliant with the IEEE P802.3ba 40GBASE-SR4 and QSFP MSA.
40G QSFP+ to 8LC breakout active optical cable offers IT professionals a cost-effective interconnect solution for merging 40G QSFP and 10G SFP+ enabled host adapters, switches and servers. It is a high data rate parallel active optical cable (AOC), to overcome the bandwidth limitation of traditional copper cable. The AOC offers 4 independent data transmission channels and 4 data receiving channels via the multimode ribbon fibers, each capable of transmitting data at rates up to 10Gb/s, providing an aggregated rate of 40Gb/s. QSFP+ breakout cable is suitable for short distances and offer a highly cost-effective way to connect within racks and across adjacent racks. These breakout cables connect to a 40G QSFP+ port of a switch on one end and to four 10G SFP+ ports of a switch on the other end. Consequently, an aggregate data rate of 40Gbps over 100 meters transmission can be achieved by this product, to support the ultra-fast computing data exchange.
