As a worldwide leader in networking, Cisco is noted for its networking hardware and telecommunication equipment. With the uprising of 40 Gigabit Ethernet network, 40G optics would be large in demand. This article would comprehensively present the Cisco QSFP Datasheet.
As the definition of 40G QSFP modules is known to most of the people, so we would mainly introduce distinctive features of the Cisco 40G QSFP modules. They are interoperable with other IEEE-compliant 40GBASE interfaces where applicable. And the high-speed electrical interface compliant to the IEEE 802.3ba standard. All the Cisco 40G QSFP+ modules were certified and tested for superior performance, quality, and reliability. So the customers could rest assured to plug these hot-swappable input or output device into the 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Nowadays, they have been widely applied to data center, high-performance computing networks, enterprise core and distribution layers, and service provider applications. Basically, there are totally 7 form factors of Cisco 40G QSFP modules. Owing to time and space limitation, we would briefly introduce QSFP-40G-SR4, QSFP-40G-LR4, QSFP-40G-ER4, QSFP-40G-PLRL4, and QSFP-40G-CSR4.
The Cisco 40GBASE-SR4 QSFP modules enable high-bandwidth 40G optical links over 12fiber parallel fiber terminated with MPO/MTP multifiber female connectors. They support link lengths of 100 m and 150 m by using OM3 and OM4 multimode fibers respectively. The Cisco QSFP-40G-SR4 datasheet is shown as below:
The Cisco 40GBASE-LR4 QSFP module supports link lengths of up to 10 km over singlemode fiber with duplex LC connectors. The Cisco QSFP-40G-LR4 datasheet is shown as below:
The Cisco 40GBASE-ER4 QSFP module supports link lengths up to 40 km over singlemode fiber with duplex LC connectors. The Cisco QSFP-40G-ER4 datasheet is shown as below:
The Cisco 40GBASE-ER4 QSFP module supports link lengths up to 1.4 km over singlemode fiber with MPO/MTP connectors. The QSFP-40G-PLRL4 datasheet is shown as below:
The Cisco 40GBASE-ER4 QSFP module supports link lengths up to 400 m over OM4 multimode fiber with MPO/MTP connectors. The Cisco QSFP-40G-CSR4 datasheet is shown as below:
