# Product Description

Our Compatible Mellanox MC220731V-003 Active Optical Cable is based on our 56G-AOC-QSFP-1 product, which has the same parameters and is manufactured in accordance with the same industry standards as its OEM counterpart. This 1 meter 56G Active Optical Cable is equipped with MSA standard QSFP+ compatible transceiver assembly at each end of cable and uses Multi-Mode Fiber (MMF) Optical Cable in between the assembly unit. This cable is designed for operation in standard temperature networking environments ranging from 0°-70°C. The cable chipset supports data rates ranging from 48-56.1 Gbps and such applications as 4x SAS 3.0 (48Gbps), 4 x InfiniBand FDR (54.54Gbps), 4 x 16G Fiber Channel (56.1Gbps). It is important to note that the mentioned application support will vary depending on the port where the cable will be used, and it supported applications as well as cable speed configuration during ordering process, but we can ensure that our cable will support at least the same functionality as its OEM counterpart. This is a multi-purpose cable that can be used in a variety of different places in today’s networking. As a result, cost effective, high speed and close range interconnections within equipment room of telecom operators, data centers or enterprise networks are the most popular applications for this product.

Our compatible Mellanox MC220731V-003 cable is CE/RoHS certified, it meets product safety standards, and is compliant with QSFP Multi Source Agreement (MSA) SFF-8436 industry standard. To ensure smooth operation, we have completed compatibility tests for this cable with the most recent platforms of Mellanox networking equipment, allowing us to encode cable EEPROM memory to be compatible with and work seamlessly in Mellanox platforms. We are committed to quality, therefore before delivering our products, we conduct stringent quality inspections that include optical parameter measurements, connector cleanliness tests, and EEPROM memory data validation tests. If you have any questions, please Contact us. We will gladly learn about your needs and recommend the best compatible products from our portfolio.
