Active Optical Cables

Quadwire® 4x10G (40G) Ethernet and Infiniband QDR QSFP Active Optical Cable with Connectivity Diagnostics®


The 40G Quadwire® AOC is a 40 Gb/s parallel active optical cable for storage, data, and high-performance computing interconnectivity. The Quadwire® AOC transmits error-free parallel 4x10 Gb/s data over multimode fiber (MMF) ribbon cables. Based on II-VI's vertically integrated VCSEL array technology and designed with QSFP MSA-compliant high-density connectors, this cable is compact, lightweight, and low power. The Quadwire® AOC is ideally suited for datacenter reaches up to 100m for InfiniBand QDR, 40G Ethernet, and other datacom and high-performance computing applications.

The FCCx410QD3Cxx features the Connectivity Diagnostics® suite of tools, which helps data center technicians quickly and intuitively find specific modules in a sea of sockets using a visual indicator. LynkFind™ allows an operator to light up the pull-tab of the module at the far-end of a link by pressing the pull-tab of the near-end module. LynkGuardian™ lights up the modules at both ends of a link when either module experiences a fault. Together, these patented tools bring the intelligence normally available through data center monitoring software to a simple and intuitive visual indicator. The benefits to the data center operator enable faster installation and maintenance, easier troubleshooting, and simplified operations.
