50m (164') QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ AOC Splitter Cable (OM2+ MMF Active Optical Fan-Out Cable) by 3M™ - 1 x QSFP+ (40G) to 4 x SFP+ (10G) Connectors

Product: SF-AOCQSFPSFP-050

3M™'s revolutionary 50m (164 ft) QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ Active Optical Splitter Cable offers IT professionals a cost-effective fiber optic interconnect solution for merging 40-Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) QSFP+ and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) 10GbE SFP+ enabled host adapters, switches and servers. For typical applications, users can install this splitter cable (a.k.a. “octopus” or "fan-out" cable) between an available QSFP/QSFP+ port on their 40-Gigabit/s rated switch and feed up to four upstream 10GbE-SFP+ enabled switches. Each QSFP+ to 4-SFP+ Active Optical Cable (AOC) Assembly features a single QSFP+ connector (SFF-8436) rated for 40-Gbps on one end and (4) SFP+ connectors (SFF-8431), each rated for 10-Gbps, on the other. Because 3M™ uses OM2+ Multimode Fiber in their splitter cable designs, the product can be installed in tight fit areas where copper cables simply can’t go, thereby increasing intra-equipment air flow. The QSFP+ fanout offers four parallel, bi-directional channels each operating at up to 10.3125 Gbps using industry leading VCSEL technology and an advanced new light-engine design. Available in multiple lengths up to 50m (164') with no lead time.
