Cloud Data Center, Enterprise, High Speed Interconnects

The Avago AFBR-7QERxxZ is a Four-Channel, Pluggable, Parallel, Fiber-Optic QSFP+ Active Optical Cable (AOC) solution for 40 Gigabit Ethernet Applications. The AFBR-7QERxxZ is a high performance cable for short-range multi-lane data communication and interconnect applications. It integrates four data lanes in each direction with 40 Gbps aggregate bandwidth. Each lane can operate at 10.3125 Gbps. These cables also support 4x10G InfiniBand QDR applications and are backward compatible to the 4x5G IB DDR and 4x2.5G IB single IB SDR applications.

The AFBR-7QERxxZ operates over multimode fiber systems using a nominal wavelength of 850 nm. The electrical interface uses a 38 contact edge type connector. The AOC incorporates Avago Technologies' proven integrated circuit and VCSEL technology to provide reliable long life, high performance, and consistent service.
