Active Optical Cable (AOC) for 40G QSFP+ to 4x 10G SFP+ application is commonly known as a “fan-out” assembly which is a hybrid transition from a QSFP+ on one end to four individual SFP+ on the other. The QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ fan-out AOC offers four parallel, bi-directional channels each operating at up to 10.3125 Gbps. Using industry leading VCSEL technology, an advanced new light-engine design and bend insensitive multimode fiber, this AOC delivers exceptional cost and performance value for 10 and 40GbE applications at distances up to 100 meters.
