The OptiWorks Active Optical Cable (AOC) for 40G QSFP+ to 4x 10G SFP+ application is commonly known as a“fan-out” assembly which is a hybrid transition from a QSFP+ on one end to four individual SFP+ on the other. The QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ fan-out AOC offers four parallel, bi-directional channels each operating at up to 10.3125 Gbps. Using industry leading VCSEL
technology, an advanced new light-engine design and bend insensitive multimode fiber, this AOC delivers exceptional cost and performance value for 10 and 40GbE applications at distances up to 100 meters.

The 400G active optical cables are the 8-pair parallel active optical cables for storage, data transmission, and high performance computing connectivity. The cable offers 8 independent data transmission channels and 8 data receiving channels via the multimode fibers with each capable up to 50Gb/s operation. An aggregate data rate of 400Gb/s over 100 meters transmission can be achieved by this cable. It is compliant with the QSFP specifications of SFF8436, SFF8432, SFF8472, and IEEE802.3bm.
