3m QSFP-CX4 Amphenol 30 AWG Passive Copper Cable - QSFP to 10GbE-CX4 (SDR / DDR InfiniBand) Hybrid Cable Assembly (9.8 ft)

Product: NW-QSFPCX4PAS-003

UPC Code: 812834020396

3m (9.8ft) Amphenol QSFP to CX4 Hybrid Passive Copper Cables are the perfect bridge between new-generation 40G QSFP enabled devices and existing CX4/InfiniBand network infrastructure. We’ve combined our latest v.3 QSFP board/connector combination on one end of the cable and the field-proven Fujitsu MicroGigaCN SFF-8470 latch CX4 connector on the other. Each connector is welded directly to the wire in a process designed to reduce signal skew and insertion loss. We use only Amphenol SKEWCLEAR 30 AWG 8-pair wire in our 3m length QSFP-CX4 cables due to its quad-shielded parallel-pair architecture with drain. The cable eliminates the harmonic-induced issues typical at high-bandwidths, ensuring reliable data transfer. Your QSFP-enabled switch will auto-negotiate data-rates over the cable, permitting compatibility with 10GbE-CX4 (3.125Gb/s per channel), SDR InfiniBand (2.5Gb/s per channel), and DDR InfiniBand (5.0Gb/s). Also available in 1m & 5m lengths everyday.
