Siemon Interconnect Solutions QSFP+ (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus) Copper Cable assemblies were developed for high-density applications, offering a cost-effective, low-power option for high-speed data center interconnects up to 10 meters. The QSFP+ form factor (Quad SFP+) can replace up to four standard SFP+ connections, providing greater density and reduced system cost. The direct-attach assemblies support emerging 40Gb/s applications and are available in standard lengths up to 5 meters with longer custom lengths available.
