Our four-channel, hot pluggable, parallel, QSFP28 to 4 x 25G SFP28 Breakout Active Optical Cable (AOC) solution, is intended for 100Gbps to 4x 25Gbps breakout applications. This AOC cable integrates four data lanes in each direction with 25 Gbps aggregate bandwidth. Each lane can operate at 10.3125 Gbps. These cables are also able to support 4 x 10G InfiniBand QDR applications and are backwards compatible to the 4 x 5G IB DDR and 4 x 2.5G IB single IB SDR applications.

Part Codes & Available Lengths

Part Number Distance

Replace the first XXX = with any length from 001 to 100m @ 850nm. OM3 Max length = 70m, OM4 = 100m.

Our AOC QSFP28 breakout cables are available in standard lengths of 1m, 3m, 5m, 10m, 15m, 20m, 30m, 50m, 70 and 100m and can be custom made to length if required.

MSA Compliant

All our Active Optical Cables (AOC) cables are built to MSA (Multi Source Agreement) standards and are extensively tested to ensure 100% compatibility with a huge range of leading switch and device manufacturers. Our QSFP28 AOC breakout cables are fully compliant with MSA SFF 8665, 8402 and 8432.

Lifetime Performance Warranty

We are very confident in the performance and reliability of our AOC cables that we offer a lifetime performance warranty. This is combined with our outstanding service and support levels to ensure complete peace of mind.

Our programming & 3rd party brand compatibility

All our Active Optical Cables (AOC) cables are coded with the correct EEPROM (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory) to match your manufacturers codes. Not all manufacturers require a code, only the ones that try to tie you into buying their optics at inflated prices. Complete Connect have a professional team who are able to engineer code and new firmware releases from manufacturers to ensure we offer up to date compatibility with all major OEM, switch, router and storage device vendors.
