A QSFP is a combination of transmitter and receiver for the transfer of optical signals. The QSFP uses an electronic to optical converter to translate the signals within the QSFP . For the transmission, the QSFP uses LEDs or lasers. The reception of the QSFP signals takes place via a PIN or an APD detector. QSFP can be used in various hardware systems, e.g. in switches, servers, HBA's, etc. QSFP usually have an LC duplex or MPO/MTP connector. Furthermore, QSFP are hot pluggable and thus can be used or removed during operation.

BlueOptics QSFP also offer Digital Diagnostic Monitoring, which allows you to monitor various values of the QSFP , such as the temperature, while being in live mode.
Duplex QSFP have a duplex or MPO/MTP connectors. Behind one connector is the receiver, behind the other one is a transmitter. Both transmitters operate with the same wavelength. For this reason, two connections are required so that the signals do not interfere.
The most common applications used with QSFP are:

  • Ethernet
  • Fibre Channel
  • Infiniband
QSFP reach distances of up to 80KM on single-mode optical fiber. CBO also offers special solutions to reach larger distances with QSFP .

BlueOptics QSFP use the same components as QSFP from the original manufacturers. BlueOptics QSFP preferably use components from the respective market-leading manufacturers in the USA such as Avago, Oclaro and Lumentum lasers and Maxim Integrated, Netlogic, Mindspeed or Analog Devices ICs. While QSFP are usually sold at a very high price, CBO can offer QSFP at a significantly lower cost due to own production without sacrificing quality. As a result, BlueOptics QSFP achieve a lifetime of up to 10 years.

NoName and 3rd Party OEM QSFP mostly use cheap components of Asian companies, in the worst case cheap replicas from China. These QSFP have a function at the very first moment, but they cannot achieve the longevity of market leading manufacturers of QSFP products.
BlueOptics QSFP only use components from marked leading manufacturers from the USA and are delivered with a warranty period of 5 years. During this time, you will receive free support for your QSFP and of course you can always talk to the CBO team.
