50m (164 ft) Active Optical QSFP to CX4 DDR Hybrid Cable – 3M™ 6A24-B0421-050.0-0 20G OM2+ MMF Active Optical Cable (AOC) – DDR InfiniBand & 10GBASE-CX4 Compatible

Product: SF-AOCQSFPCX4-050

Extend the reach of your network with Active Optical Cables from 3M! Amphenol has partnered with industry leader 3M™ to bring you an affordable high-performance 20G Active Optical Cable (AOC) solution for interfacing early-generation hardware with SFF-8470 ports (10GbE-CX4 & SDR/DDR InfiniBand) to the latest generation of hardware with SFF-8436 ports (40GbE & QDR InfiniBand). Each 3M™ Active Optical CX4 to QSFP Cable (3M™ P/N 6A24-B0421-050.0-0) integrates four complete fiber optic transceivers per end, operating at data rates from 1.0 to 5.0 Gbps per lane (20 Gbps aggregate), depending upon hardware requirements. Precision-terminated to 50m (164') length using Plenum Rated OM2+ 50/125 Multimode Fiber and a hybrid of an SFF-8436 QSFP/QSFP+ MSA connector and SFF-8470 CX4 connector; offering the flexibility and compatibility of traditional optical modules. 3M™ brand Active Optical Cables are electrically compliant with the QSFP+ interface; ensuring full support for InfiniBand, Ethernet, Fibre Channel and SONET signal-sets Featuring 3M's newest firmware and PCB design for the lowest power consumption (660 mw) per-port of any competing QSFP-CX4 Hybrid AOC. 50m (164') length is ideal for medium-run rack-to-rack, inter-room, and inter-floor connections.
