The Cable Matters Cable Matters 40Gb SFP+ Direct Attach Copper Twinax Cable is rated for the extreme demands of 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GBASE-CR4). It is designed for maximum equipment compatibility according to the Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) SFF-8436 specification.
Cost-Effective Fiber Alternative
This copper cable provides a cost-effective alternative to purchasing expensive fiber optic transceivers and fiber cables for distances up to 7 meters.
Lower power operating cost
Less expensive cable and transceiver cost
Wider operating temperature
Compatible with MSA compliant equipment with EEPROM open source
Use anti-static protection when connecting or removing the cable
Do not touch the circuit board when removing the cable
40 GbE HIGH BANDWIDTH 40 QSFP CABLE connects a switch, rack server, NIC, or transceiver for Network Attached Storage (NAS), Storage Area Network (SAN), and High Performance Computing (HPC) applications such as Fibre Channel and InfiniBand
PASSIVE QSFP+ TO QSFP+ CABLE connects equipment for high density networking environments with Top of Rack (TOR) or Middle of Row (MOR) switching requirements; Low power consumption QSFP+ twinaxial cable provides a cost-effective fiber alternative to installing fiber transceivers and cables to connect a QSFP 40G network
QSFP+ QUAD SMALL FORM FACTOR PLUS cable is hot pluggable with an QSFP+ 38-contact edge connector; Plug and unplug without a network interruption; Quick release latch provides a secure connection until the release tab is pulled
SUPERIOR ENGINEERING of QSFP DAC cable with 30 AWG wire and metal die-cast connectors for superior EMI electromagnetic noise performance and minimal insertion loss; A CL2 in-wall cable jacket provides increased heat and fire resistance; Copper QSFP+ cable offers low power consumption and low latency to operate in a high bandwidth storage area network
MSA COMPATIBLE QSFP+ 40G cable is designed for compatibility with the majority of switch, network adapter card, or network attached storage equipment that follow the Multi-Source Agreement SFF-8436 specifications; Supports aggregate data speeds up to 40Gbps with 3x the density of SFP+
