BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Breakout Cable (AOC) from CBO with four-channel 100Gb/s QSFP28 to 2x50G/s QSFP28 transceiver connection for distances of up to 100 meters over multi-mode fiber optic cable. All BlueOptics BO282903L3M high-performance Active Optical Breakout Cables have a flame resistant LSZH fiber sheathing (halogen free, low smoke emission in case of fire).
Wide Range of Applications
Unlike Direct Attach twinax cable solutions (DAC) the hot-pluggable Active Optical Breakout Cables are more flexible and have less weight. The QSFP28 connectors have a built-in I/O and O/E converter that converts the electrical signal into an optical signal. This signal is converted into an electrical signal again with output at the other end of the Active Optical Breakout Cable. The QSFP28 transceiver connectors of each BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Breakout Cable are manufactured according to MSA standards taking the SFF-8665, SFF-8679, SFF-8636 and IEEE 802.3bm specifications into account. Active Optical Breakout Cables also have a better performance and a smaller bend radius as well as a smaller diameter opposing to Direct Attach twinax cable solutions.
Data Transmission at the Speed of Light
Increase your bandwidth and lower the latency. BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Cables transmit and receive signals via one optical fiber and have a QSFP28 Connector to 2xQSFP28 connector. The connection takes place via a BlueOptics fiber cable onto supporting hardware with QSFP28 port.
Error Analysis with Digital Diagnostics
Facilitate troubleshooting, maintenance and monitoring in your network through the Digital Diagnostics Monitoring (DDM) / Digital Optical Monitoring (DOM) interface. Using the digital diagnosis function, compliant with MSA SFF-8472, BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Cables provide real time information like Supply Voltage, Laser Bias Current, Laser Average Output Power, Laser Received Input Power and Temperature.
Less maintenance due to a long lifetime. BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Cables only use components of leading manufacturers for Lasers (i.a. Lumentum, Avago, Mitsubishi, Sumitomo) and Integrated Circuits (i.a. Maxim Integrated, Netlogic, Mindspeed, Analog Devices). BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Cables are designed for an above-average operating time of approximately 3.000.000 MTBF hours.
Each BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Cable is covered by a 5-year function warranty by CBO.
For the lifetime of the product you receive technical support via email and telephone.
The CBO preliminary exchange encompasses free shipping of replacement cables on the next working day.
Full MSA Compliance
BlueOptics BO282903L3M high availability Active Optical Cables meet the Multi Source Agreement (MSA) standard SFF-8436. With MSA Standards various manufacturers determine standardizations of the transceiver to ensure the interoperability. Here the QSFP28 interface is defined electrically, mechanically and functionally.
BlueOptics BO282903L3M high availability Active Optical Cables meet or exceed industrial standards, such as CE and RoHS as well as the regulations of the FCC. Through continuous monitoring before, during and after the production process, according to ISO9001, CBO reaches a steady quality of each BlueOptics BO282903L3M Active Optical Cable.
By using BlueOptics high availability active optical cables, networks can be prepared for increasing demands. Regardless whether an increased data volume, higher transmission rates, greater scalability, higher performance and/or a higher reliability is desired. With BlueOptics active optical cables you can improve your connections and reduce your CAPEX for pluggable optics up to 90%.
