Our compatible HPE DAC cables – 10Gb to 400Gb DAC & AOC and Breakout solutions offer flexible and reliable options for high-speed interconnections, ensuring seamless connectivity and performance.
Our compatible product line includes HPE DAC Cables, AOC and Breakout cable solutions that are widely used for short-distance connections supporting 10 Gb to 400 Gb data rates. We have carefully analyzed the product datasheets of HP DAC cables, and we have mapped our products to the Part Numbers of HPE OEM versions to make the work easier for network engineers. Our compatible HP DAC cables, AOC Breakout Cables are designed based on our own products, which can be seamlessly integrated with various HPE equipment like HPE FlexFabric, HPE BladeSystem, C-series however if you are looking for cables for your Aruba ProCurve series check our Aruba DAC Cable section.
Our compatible HPE DAC cables are ideal for connecting equipment ports that are within 10 meters of each other, while AOC cables should be considered for longer distances up to 100 meters. HP DAC Cables (Direct Attach Copper) are cost-effective high-speed copper cables that do not use optical lasers while AOC (Active Optical Cable), on the other hand, are high-speed optical cables with built-in optical transceivers for multi-mode optical fiber interconnections. AOC cables have several advantages, including being lighter, reaching longer distances (up to 100 meters compared to DAC’s 10 meters), having a smaller bending radius, and being more resistant to electromagnetic radiation (EMI). AOC cables are also easier to install and have less optical budget loss compared to traditional solutions with separate transceivers and patch cables. Moreover, AOC cables are safer as they have fewer potential failure points due to the absence of optical connectors. Below, we have divided our compatible HP DAC cables into two groups: HP SFP+ direct attach cables and HP 25G to 400G cables, if any questions arise feel free to – Contact Us!
Our HP SFP+ direct attach cables are fully passive high-speed copper cable assemblies with an SFF-8432 MSA standard compatible SFP+ cage at each end of the cable which can be used in HPE FlexNetwork, HPE BladeSystem, C-series and other HPE equipment which utilize 10 Gbps interfaces. Our HP SFP+ direct attach cables are most commonly used for cost-effective close-range interconnections (from 0.5 meters up to 7 meters) within equipment rooms for telecom operators or data centers, interconnecting LAN or SAN applications with speeds up to 10G.
This section covers our HPE compatible 25G SFP28, 40G QSFP+, 100G QSFP28 and 400G QSFP-DD Direct Attach Cables, Active Optical Cables and Breakout Cables for HPE FlexNetwork switches and HPE BladeSystem blade servers. These compatible cables will become handy for high speed, cost-effective close range interconnections within the equipment room, data centers or Top of Rack consolidations.
