HiFiber's 10m(33ft) 56G QSFP+ to QSFP+ AOC(Active Optical Cable) deal for high-performance computing storage customers,industry-leading Fourteen Data Rate (FDR) Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (QSFP+) Active Optical Cables (AOCs) achieve 14 Gbps data rates over long reaches up to 4km, using a fraction of the power of other brands Low power consumption of less than 1W per cable end Improves overall data-center power consumption and thermal efficiency.Enables deployment of additional ports for increased number of AOCs persystem, resulting in more connectivity options and total system cost savings.
Four bi-directional optical data links per end, each operating at data rates from 1.0 to 14.0 Gbps Compatible with multiple protocols including InfiniBand* Fourteen Data Rate(FDR), 10 Gbps Ethernet, Fibre Channel (8 and 10 Gbps), SAS 2.0 and 3.0(6 and 12 Gbps) and other protocol applications.
Low Bit Error Rate (BER) of10e-18 errors Provides increased data reliability and robustness of link versus standard transceivers with 10e-12 errors per link.
Up to 4km assembly length —singlemode fiber technology Longer reach than copper and multi-mode fiber solutions (100 meters typically), enabling deployment in data center and campus environments.
Lower cost versus standard transceivers and cable assemblies Allows for significantly more economical structured cable links.
Low-loss singlemode pigtail versions available Ensures network is capable of handling future bandwidth increases.
Minimizes future highcost cable upgrades as bandwidth requirements increase.
Firmware is field flashable via an I2C bus Ensures cables can be re-flashed while in the host systemSpecifications.
