Our Compatible Juniper DAC cables and Juniper Breakout Cable solutions will provide flexibility for bulletproof high-speed data center interconnections.

Juniper DAC, AOC & Breakout cables

Our line of Juniper DAC cables, Juniper Breakout Cable and Juniper AOC cable compatible solutions are commonly used for 10G to 100G short-distance connections, generally in data centers or network equipment rooms of corporations and ISPs. Using the Juniper Hardware Compatibility Tool, we mapped our products to the Model Names and Part Numbers of Juniper OEM versions to simplify the daily life of network engineers.

Our Juniper DAC Cables and Juniper Breakout Cable compatibles are based on our own products, which we can adapt for effective operation on all common Juniper network platforms EX, QFX, SRX, and others. Due to the fact that DAC is a high-speed copper cable assembly that does not involve optical lasers, DAC cables have gained appeal because of their inexpensive cost. Additionally, our DAC cable Juniper compatibles feature reduced power usage and straightforward installation. The products displayed in this summary are based on Juniper DAC cable lengths, although we are able to produce cables of any length to fulfill the demands of our customers. DAC Cable Juniper compatibles are recommended for connecting equipment ports up to 10 meters apart; for greater distances, AOC should be considered.

Juniper AOC cables have Active Optical Cable which is a high-speed optical cable assembly with attached pre-terminated optical transceivers to a multi-mode optical fiber. This approach offers a number of benefits to the user. AOCs are significantly lighter than Twinax DAC cables, and they can reach distances up to 100 meters (DACs can reach distances up to 10 meters). They also have a modest bending radius of 3 millimeters, and they have a strong tolerance to electromagnetic radiation (EMI).

When compared to a traditional solution that consists of optical transceivers and a patch cable, the latter solution is easier to install and has less optical budget loss because there is no attenuation introduced by the connectors. As a result, longer distance connections are possible. Because there are no optical connectors, using AOC cables is inherently safer because there are fewer potential failure points. In our portfolio of Juniper AOC cable compatibles, you’ll find alternatives to 10G, 25G, 40G, and 100G AOC cables for both direct and breakout cable Juniper compatibles. The following product selection is organized according to Juniper SKUs and cable lengths; however, it is important to note that we are able to manufacture custom length for Juniper AOC and DAC cables based on the requirements of our customers.

Juniper DAC 10G SFP+

Our 10G Juniper DAC cables (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. Our Juniper DAC cables compatible product line covers data rates ranging from 1.0625 to 10.52 Gbps and applications such as 10G Ethernet, GE Ethernet, 1/2/4/8/10G Fiber Channel, and can be used for mobile network fronthaul CPRI & OBSAI protocol options. Our 10G Juniper DAC cables are most commonly used for cost-effective close-range interconnections within equipment rooms for telecom operators or data centers, interconnecting LAN or SAN applications with speeds up to 10G.

Juniper DAC 25G SFP28

Our 25G Juniper DAC cables are fully passive high-speed Copper cable assemblies, providing 2.5 times higher bandwidth while employing the same form factor of 10G SFP+. Juniper DAC cables are compliant with SFF-8432 MSA standard and IEEE 802.3by technology which allows for the increased speeds, thus providing a cost-effective transition to higher density and better performance, compared to 10G. Our 25G Juniper DAC cables product alternatives are designed for 25G Ethernet applications, but the backward compatibility allows it to also support 10G Ethernet, resulting in a supported data rate of 10.31 – 28.05 Gbps. Our 25G Juniper DAC cables are available in lengths from 1 to 5 meters. Most popular applications of our 25G Juniper DAC compatible products are cost-effective close range interconnections within the equipment room for telecom operators or data centers, Top of Rack consolidations and wireless backhaul.

Juniper DAC & AOC 40G QSFP+

Our Juniper DAC cables provide a cost-effective way of establishing 40Gbps (40G Ethernet) interconnections, and this mature technology is still favored by many network architects. The 40G QSFP+ DACs feature four independent 10Gbps lanes in each direction to support a combined data transfer rate of 40Gbps. Our Juniper 40G DAC QSFP to QSFP copper direct-attach cable assembly compatibles are available in lengths ranging from 0.5 meters to 5 meters for passive units and 7 meters and 10 meters for active units, which contain electronic components in the connectors that boost the cable’s performance.

Shown compatible Juniper AOC Cables are direct-attached Active Optical Cables with 40G QSFP optical transceivers embedded at both ends. Our Juniper 40G AOC Cables feature 4 parallel lanes, each operating at 850nm using VCSEL lasers on the transmitter and receiver side—PIN Photodiodes. Juniper AOC cables range in length from 1m to 30m, however our 40GBase AOC can be custom built for up to 100m over OM3 Multimode fiber (MMF). These AOC cables can operate at a 41.25 Gbps data rate (40G Ethernet) and enable optimal system airflow for your applications.

Juniper DAC & AOC 100G QSFP28

Many 100G network architects favor Juniper DAC cables due to their high speed, low power consumption, and ability to make rack-to-rack connections over short distances. Since 100G data rates are now the mainstream, this is not surprising. Compliant with the 100G Ethernet (100GBASE-CR4) standard, our DAC cables for Juniper feature four independently operating 25 Gbps lanes. This series is available in lengths between 1 and 5 meters.

Meanwhile Juniper AOC Cables are an excellent option for use in situations in which it is necessary to make interconnections at limited distances that are high speed, robust, and low in power consumption. These situations typically involve rack-to-rack interconnections within the same equipment room. In the early stages, Juniper AOC Cables were available in lengths ranging from one meter all the way up to thirty meters. On the other hand, should the need arise for a longer interconnection, we are able to make customized solutions for distances of up to one hundred meters for Juniper AOC Cables.

Juniper Breakout Cable

Direct attach copper Juniper 40G breakout cables are suitable for short distance interconnections between high speed 40 Gbps ports and lower-speed 10Gbps ports, where Juniper 100G breakout cables gives network builders the opportunity to link network devices that operate between high-speed 100 Gbps ports and lower-speed 25 Gbps ports. Both options provide network architects the option to connect network devices operating at different speeds. Breakout cables are useful for making low-cost connections across relatively short distances, such as between racks that are located close together. Our Juniper 40G breakout cables and Juniper 100G breakout cables are offered as passive units in lengths ranging from 1 to 5 meters. They come equipped with 100G QSFP28 SFF-8665 compliant and 4x25G SFP28 SFF-8432 compliant modules at either end of the cable.

Active optical Juniper breakout cables are ideally suited for use in situations requiring cost-effective connectivity between high-speed 40G and 10G ports or 100G ports and lower-speed 25G ports. The fact that there are 4 lanes, each of which can operate at 10.3125 Gbps (10G Ethernet) or 25.78 Gbps (25G Ethernet), and an aggregated bandwidth of 41.25 Gbps (40G Ethernet) or 103.125 Gbps (100G Ethernet) gives network architects the opportunity to connect network devices that run at different speeds. Compatible AOC breakout cables for Juniper equipment come in lengths ranging from one meter all the way up to ten meters in total, however we can make custom solutions with compatible AOC breakout cables for Juniper up to 100 meters.
