Updated on Aug 4, 2020 by

Mar. 26th, Shenzhen, FS News – This week, FS has launched a new product in 120G Active Optical Cable (AOC) category. This new AOC with the 120GBASE CXP to 3 × 40G QSFP+ Breakout design is a high performance, low power consumption, long reach interconnect solution supporting 120G Ethernet, Fibre Channel and PCIE.

In 2015, the increasing demand of high speed data transmission guides 100-Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) development into a new stage and height. Actually, 100G had accounted for over half of all bandwidth deployed in carrier networks in 2014. At the same time, the development of 100GbE is getting higher and higher in the request of cost-effective equipment and optical components. Fiber connectivity in higher-speed active equipment is being condensed and simplified with plug-and-play, hot-swap transceiver miniaturization, thus, 100G optical transceivers, or active optical cables etc. have been putting into using and has a vast market.

The global, vertically-integrated business model and expertise in optical design enable FS to rapidly deliver market-leading, high performance fiber optic components and subsystems. We would like to perfect the quantity and quality of 100GbE optical product constantly, and do our best to offer the most cost-effective 100GbE solutions for our customers. Last week, a new product 100GBASE-10SR CXP had been launched in 100G Transceiver category. Following this update, FS has launched the 120GBASE CXP to 3 × 40G QSFP+ breakout AOC this week.

Compared to the traditional 120G CXP AOC, the 120G CXP to 3 × 40G QSFP+ Breakout AOC provides connectivity between devices using CXP port on one end and 40G QSFP+ on the other end so that it can provide the ability for 120G systems to connect to 40G switches or adapter cards. FS offers high-quality 100% compatible 120G CXP to 3 × 40G QSFP+ Breakout AOC with major brands like Cisco, Juniper, Extreme Networks, and so on. The 120G CXP to 3 × 40G QSFP+ breakout AOC on sale now is in 1m(i.e., 3.3ft) length. If you want to order this product in other lengths, please contact FS team directly.
