AOC stands for Active Optical Cable, realize photoelectric conversion and transmission by the optical transceiver at both ends. 40G QSFP+ AOC is one of the most popular Active Optical Cables on the market. Why is it develop so fast? What advantages does it have? Today, fiber-mart.com will introduce 40G QSFP+ AOC to everyone.
What is 40G QSFP+ AOC?
40G QSFP+ AOC is the core component for realizing parallel optical interconnection, made of ribbon optical patch cord connect two high-speed 40G parallel connectors(As below picture). There are 4 data channels in each signal direction, each channel can work at 10Gbps speed, transmission distance is generally 1 to 100m.
What advantages does 40G QSFP+ AOC have?
Compared with the traditional 40G copper cable, 40G AOC has incomparable advantages:
※High transmission efficiency, small size, light weight, low energy consumption.
※ AOC compared with optical transceiver, there is no cleanliness problem in the case of failure. No need to test the terminal plug, can help users save more time.
※ AOC wiring consistency and repeatability is better, the closed ends are more easily to avoid the effects of environment and vibration swing. If there is a fault, can be directly replaced, savings costs.
※Compared with optical transceiver, AOC is cheaper, can save the deployment cost, and the transmission distance can also meet the needs of a variety of short distance transmission applications.
fiber-mart.com provides two kinds of 40G QSFP+ AOC
1.40G QSFP+ to QSFP+ AOC
2.40G QSFP+ to 4*10G SFP+ AOC
Can compatible with different brands of switches, such as Cisco, HUAWEI, H3C, Intel etc,. Following will list a product base on thses two typs.
The 40G QSFP+ AOC provided by fiber-mart.com use imported laser accessories, low power consumption, high performance; High-quality environmental protection optical cable outer cover material, fully protect fiber core, with better signal transmission characteristics and greater flexibility; The connection port use reinforcement design, so as to better control the bending angle. Protective thread, to provide more reliable high-speed data transmission effect, longer service life.
