Cisco Meraki Compatible MA-CBL-40G-3M Datasheet

Cisco Meraki Compatible MA-CBL-40G-3M cable is based on our product 40G-PDAC-QSFP. When You will order it will be encoded with Cisco code and it will be labeled with part number: 40G-PDAC-QSFP-CI, where CI means Cisco Compatible. Above You can download datasheet of our 40G-PDAC-QSFP product.

# Product Description

  MA-CBL-40G-3M is Cisco Meraki Compatible 40G Passive Twinax Cable, operating over 3 meter passive copper cable. 40G Passive twinax cable is equipped with Cisco Meraki compatible QSFP+ transceiver assembly at each end of cable. Because passive Twinax cables do not support any electrical transmission signal boosting during regeneration, the length of a MA-CBL-40G-3M 40G Passive Twinax cable is restricted to 3 meters, which is sufficient to support 40G connections within the same or adjacent equipment racks. 40G Passive Twinax cable supports 4 separate fully duplex copper data lanes, which support 2.125-41.2 Gbps multi-rate communication and such applications as 40G Ethernet (41.25Gbps), 10G Ethernet (10.31Gbps). The most popular applications of 40G Passive Twinax Cables are cost effective close range interconnections within equipment room of telecom operators or data centers, interconnecting LAN or SAN applications with speeds up to 40G. This cable is designed to be compatible with Cisco Meraki switches MS210, MS225, MS250, MS350, MS410 and MS425.

  MA-CBL-40G-3M Passive Twinax Cable is CE/RoHS certified and it is Compliant with the product safety standards. MA-CBL-40G-3M is fully compliant to QSFP Multi Source Agreement SFF-8436. Cisco compatible MA-CBL-40G-3M passive twinax cables are CE/RoHS certified and meets product safety requirements. We run compatibility tests on the Cisco compatible MA-CBL-40G-3M passive twinax cables using the newest Cisco networking platforms, allowing us to encode the transceiver’s EEPROM memory to be fully compatible and work seamlessly with Cisco systems. MA-CBL-40G-3M passive twinax cables, on the other hand, comply with the Multi Source Agreement and the SFF-8436 industry standard. Because our priority is to provide excellent service, we do thorough quality inspections on all of our products before to delivery. As a result, we perform optical parameter measurements, connector cleanness testing, and EEPROM memory data validation tests on QSFP transceivers.
