Connect one 100GbE QSFP28 to Two 50GbE QSFP28 Transceivers
Splitting one 100G port to Multiple Ports
There are several different options when connecting QSFP28 100GbE transceivers to other ports. These include: –
100G to 100G | 100G to Two 50G | 100G to Four 25G
All these require MTP cables which are supplied by Complete Connect within our M400 Series

Splitting one 100G port to Two 50G Ports
A 100G port can be connected to two 50G ports using an MTP conversion cable.
100G SR4 QSFP28 transceivers transmit over both multimode and singlemode as 4 x 25GbE channels. These channels use 8 fibre cores (4 fibre pairs) and require MTP (MPO type) connectors.
The 8 fibres connected to the 100G transceiver, which include 4 Tx signals and 4 Rx signals can be directed as pairs to up to four other transceivers.
In the case of connecting to two 50G transceivers then 4 fibres go to each 50G transceiver.
Complete Connect’s M400 Series Multimode 100G to 50G (x2) Fibre Conversion Cable.
The 4 channels from the 100G transceiver have to be directed in a specific way to the two 50G transceivers.
Our M400 Series Conversion cable ensures the correct polartity is maintained for both direct connect cables and when additional cables (such as trunk cables and patch cables) are added into the network.
