40GBASE QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ Breakout Active Optical Cable

40GBASE QSFP to 4x10G SFP+ Breakout Active Optical Cable offers IT professionals a cost-effective interconnect solution for merging 40G QSFP and 10G SFP+ enabled host adapters, switches and servers. For typical applications, users can install this splitter Active Optical cable between an available QSFP port on their 40Gbps rated switch and feed up to four upstream 10GbE-SFP+ enabled switches. Each QSFP-SFP+ splitter Active Optical cable features a single QSFP connector (SFF-8436) rated for 40Gbps on one end and (4) SFP+ connectors (SFF-8431), each rated for 10-Gb/s, on the other.
All our 40GBASE QSFP to 4x SFP+ Breakout AOC are 100% compatible with major brands like Cisco, Juniper, Enterasys, Extreme, H3C and so on.
