200G QSFP28-DD Breakout AOC is a QSFP56 VCSEL-based (Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser), cost effective 200Gb/s to 2 x 100Gb/s active optical splitter cable (AOC) designed for use in 200G/2x100G Ethernet and InfiniBand EDR applications. It is compliant with QSFP28 and QSFP-DD MSA specifications. It provides connectivity between system units with a 200Gb/s QSFP-DD connector on one side and two separate 100Gb/s QSFP28 connectors on the other side, such as link between a switch and two servers. The cable connects data signals of 8x25G NRZ from one single QSFP-DD end to two QSFP28 ends, which operates 4 x25G NRZ signals each. AscentOptics’ high quality active fiber cable solutions provide power-efficient connectivity for data center interconnects. They enable higher port bandwidth, density and configurability at a low cost, and reduced power requirement in the data centers, HPC (High-Performance Computing) and storage networks.
