Product Review

The Cisco QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M offers a practical solution for short-range, high-speed data transmission with its 2-meter length and breakout design allowing connection to multiple devices. However, its PVC jacket and specific operating temperature range (0 °C to 70 °C) may limit its application in environments with extreme conditions. The detailed specifications, including bend radius and face plate distance, ensure compatibility and ease of installation in confined spaces.


The Cisco QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M is a high-speed, direct-attach cable designed for short-range multi-lane data communication and interconnect applications. It is a part of the Cisco networking hardware portfolio, offering a reliable solution for connecting networking equipment. This cable is specifically engineered to enhance data center architectures, improving flexibility and reducing connection complexities with its breakout cable design. This product features a Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable (QSFP) end, facilitating a connection that branches out into four 10 Gigabit Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) ends. This configuration allows for the efficient distribution of a 40G connection into four separate 10G channels, providing versatility in connectivity options. The QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M maintains a total length of 2 meters, offering ample reach for connecting devices within a rack or across adjacent racks in a data center environment. The cable's physical characteristics are designed with installation and operation in mind. The QSFP end has a diameter of 3.5 mm and a minimum bend radius of 60 mm, ensuring durability and reliability when routing cables in tight spaces. Additionally, the faceplate distance at the QSFP end is 100 mm, allowing for sufficient clearance during installation. Conversely, the SFP ends feature a smaller diameter of 3 mm and a reduced bend radius of 30 mm, catering to the need for flexibility and ease of handling in dense networking environments. The faceplate distance at this end measures 60 mm. The QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M is encased in a PVC jacket, chosen for its durability and resistance to varied environmental conditions. The jacket's orange color provides easy identification among numerous cables, simplifying management and maintenance tasks. Moreover, the cable includes a brown pull tab, aiding in the safe and easy installation or removal of the cable without causing damage to the connectors.
  • Breakout location from the 40G end is strategically placed at 0.66 meters, optimizing cable management and airflow.
  • Operates within a temperature range of 0 °C to 70 °C, ensuring consistent performance under typical data center conditions.
  • Designed for storage in environments with temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 85 °C, offering resilience against extreme conditions.
The Cisco QSFP-4X10G-AOC2M is a testament to Cisco's commitment to providing high-quality networking solutions that meet the demands of modern data centers. By facilitating high-bandwidth connections with a single cable, this product simplifies the network infrastructure, reduces cable clutter, and enhances airflow. Its construction and design features ensure it can withstand the rigors of continuous operation, making it a reliable choice for organizations looking to optimize their data center operations.
