Network integrated wiring is gradually popularized. As a high-bandwidth and high-security data transmission medium, optical fiber cable are widely used in various large and medium-sized network. However, due to the high cost of optical fiber cable solution, in some cases, copper core high-speed cable still play an important role. For example, 10G SFP+ DAC high-speed cable are a cost-effective solution for short-distance transmission applications in 10G data centers. Unitekfiber will introduce the advantages and wiring applications of this high-speed fiber cable.
The advantages of 10G SFP+ DAC cable:
10G SFP+DAC is a copper cable designed with SFP+ connectors at both ends. The wiring flexibility of 10G SFP+DAC is higher, the transmission distance can reach 15 meters, and the operation difficulty is lower in the actual construction process; 10G SFP+DAC wiring save connection equipment, do not need to use optical patch panels, servers and network equipment can be directly connected to TOR switch, which indirectly saves investment cost.
The 10G SFP+ DAC provided by Unitekfiber usually supports a link length of 15m and has the advantages of low power consumption and low latency, so it becomes an ideal choice for connecting servers and switch. While the 10G SFP+ AOC supports links up to 100m Length, and is a low-cost solution to replace the optical module, so it is usually used for the connection between switches.
The 10G SFP+ DAC high-speed cable and switch connection solution:
The 10G SFP+ DAC high-speed cables are widely used in the interconnection between 10G fiber optic network cards, the interconnection between 10G TOR switches and servers, and the stacking of 10G Ethernet switches.
The 10G SFP+ DAC high-speed cable and 10G optical module or TOR switch wiring solution:
In the currently popular spine-and-leaf topology, TOR switches are leaf switches, which are connected to spine switches. In a 10G network, 10G servers are connected to 10G switches through 10G SFP+ DAC and Cat6a/Cat7 with 10G optical module, and 10G switches are connected to 40G backbone switches as leaf switches.
10G SFP+ DAC is characterized by low loss, high efficiency, energy saving and low cost, and can meet the increasing wiring requirements of transmission rate, scalability and reliability. If you want to realize the connection between the server and the switch within 10m, it is recommended to choose 10G SFP+ DAC.
