QSFP-40G-20AOC QSFP+ 40G direct attach
The QSFP-40G-20AOC is an active optical direct attach cable with QSFP+ connectors and has 20m length. Cable provides short distance(same shelf/rack/room) 40G inexpensive connectivity. Cable can be used for 10/40G Ethernet, Infiniband SDR/DDR/QDR or 2/4/8G Fiber Ch. It operates 4 independent 10G channels using the QSFP connector footprint. Each of the four channels can operate at multi-rate speeds Gigabit to 10G (1.0Gbps to 10.3125Gbps). Cable has been tested and found compatible with most major brand networking vendors (including Cisco, Juniper, HP and Edge-Core TOR switches).
The 40G Direct Attach cables can be used in a wide variety of applications such as:
High capacity I/O in Storage Area Networks, Network Attached Storage, and Storage Servers
Switched fabric I/O such as ultra high bandwidth switches and routers 10G/40G Ethernet
Data center cabling infrastructure
High density connections between networking equipment
