SFP+ 10G Cisco Compatible Direct Attach Copper Passive and Active Cables


Cisco Compatible SFP+ cables from Siemon were developed specifically as a cost-effective and lower-power alternative to optical modules for short reach links in high-speed interconnect applications such as high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking including top-of-rack switching and network storage markets. The assemblies support data transfer rates up to 10+Gb/s per lane, meeting or exceeding current standards specifications.

Cisco Compatible SFP+ active and passive copper cable assemblies are programmed specifically to work with Cisco equipment. When these cables are plugged into Cisco equipment they will not trigger the warning message that a non-Cisco transceiver has been detected. These cables do not violate Cisco's warranty.

These SFP+ fully-shielded assemblies combine twin-axial shielded cable configuration with robust die cast housings for enhanced support of high frequency data rates. These SFP+ assemblies are impedance matched to ensure interoperability and minimize EMI leakage through their fully-shielded design.

The active cables use signal processing within the connector back shells to extend the length that copper cables can reach beyond the limits of passive copper solutions.

  • Enhanced EMI shielding for low emissions
