100 G QSFP28

AOCs (active optical cables) for QSFP28 interfaces

Our QSFP28 or 100GBASE-SR4 AOCs are the low-power, low-weight and hot-pluggable solution for 100 Gbit/s optic interconnections of servers, routers, switches and storage systems in data centers or high performance computing. They conform with the IEEE 802.3bm specification and support 100 Gbit/s Ethernet over up to 70 m (230 ft) with an OM3 or up to 100 m (328 ft) with an OM4 multimode fiber optic cable.
