The Cisco QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M is a Cisco Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable (QSFP) active optical cable (AOC) that provides a high-speed, low-power connectivity solution for data center and high-performance computing environments. It is designed to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) applications. The QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M cable consists of four 10GbE channels, each operating at a data rate of 10 Gbps, resulting in a total aggregated bandwidth of 40 Gbps. It uses multimode fiber optic cables and is terminated with QSFP connectors on both ends. This AOC cable offers a cost-effective and flexible solution for short-range data transmission within racks or between adjacent racks in a data center. It eliminates the need for separate transceivers and fiber patch cables, simplifying installation and reducing cable management complexity. Overall, the Cisco QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M provides high-speed, reliable, and efficient connectivity for data center networking applications.
