Description
Xmultiple QSFP to 4x SFP+ 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.
For typical applications, users can install this splitter Active Optical cable between an available QSFP
port on their 40Gbps rated switch and feed up to four upstream 10GbE-SFP+ enabled switches. Each
QSFP-SFP+ splitter Active Optical cable features a single QSFP connector (SFF-8436) rated for
40Gbps on one end and (4) SFP+ connectors (SFF-8431), each rated for 10-Gb/s, on the other.
