The QSFP+ module is designed for use in 40 Gigabit Ethernet links over duplex multimode fiber (MMF). This transceiver is compliant with the QSFP+ MSA and IEEE 802.3ba XLPPI electrical interface. It enables data center operators to upgrade from 10G to 40G without changing fiber infrastructure, thereby saving fiber resources. Digital diagnostics functions are available via an I2C interface, as specified by the QSFP+ MSA, to allow access to real-time operating parameters.
With these features, this easy to install, hot swappable transceiver is suitable to be used in various applications, such as 40G Ethernet and Enterprise Data Center.
