The demand for greater bandwidth is soaring, and the network must keep peace. 100G DACs, AOCs and QSFP28 optics are essential components to fulfill 100G deployment. Let’s see how they get involved in 100G Ethernet network.


DAC and AOC: Link Length 1-30 m

DAC and AOC are used for server to switch, storage to switch and switch to switch connection. DACs are for in-the-rack connectivity for link length less than 5 m, whereas AOCs can stretch the reach up to 30 m.


DACs and AOCs in FS are available with various lengths and compatible with the major brands like Cisco, HPE and Arista. Each end of the cable can be made with different compatible brands.


100GBASE-SR4/PSM4: Link Length 30-500 m

To connect equipment over 30 m where both DACs and AOCs fail to reach, 100GBASE-SR4 and PSM4 optic modules are ready to assist. SR4 can reach up to 100 m with 12-fiber MTP cable, while PSM4 extends the reach to 500 m

100g-sr4-psm4 & mtp-cable

100GBASE-CWDM4/ LR4/ER4: 2-40km

100GBASE CWDM4 is designed for link no more than 2 km, and LR4 is suggested for connections range from 2 km-10 km. The 100G-ER4 makes a great leap and further extends the reach up to 40 km.

100g-cwdm4-lr4-er4 & lc duplex cable

Data center regularly undertakes great migration to even higher-speed network, thus 100G is  gaining acceptance in data centers with legacy 40G infrastructure. MTP conversion cable offers flexible and efficient migration path to 100G.

Data centers are quickly increasing in scale, and it’s high time to get 100G deployment rolling!
