Support mixed vendor environments by connecting multiple switches, routers, security appliances, storage appliances and more to your ToR (top-of-rack) switch with flexible optical breakout cables. The 40G QSFP+ connector of the 5m Arista Networks AOC-Q-8L-40G-5M Compatible 40G to 8xLC Active Optical Breakout Cable by Advance is fully tested to ensure 100% compliance with all Arista Networks switches, routers, appliances and devices that support AOC-Q-8L-40G-5M cables.
The cable breaks out into 8x multimode LC connectors, grouped into four duplex pairs which simply plug into any 10G multimode (850nm) SFP+ module, eliminating the need to ensure compatibility with the vendor equipment on the four pairs as this is handled by the SFP+ modules. The simple plug-and-play operation allows four devices to connect to your Arista Networks ToR switch and enable 10G Ethernet communication between each device.
