The SO-QSFP-SR4 is a 40GBASE-SR4 compliant QSFP+ (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus) transceiver for 40 Gbps applications where the transport is made using four channels at 10 Gbps. It is intended for use in intra-connect applications in data centers between switches| routers| storage equipment etc. The transceiver can also be used for 10GbE-LAN interconnect applications| providing a higher density as compared to four individual 10G connections using e.g. SFP+ transceivers.
The SO-QSFP-SR4 provides transport over an MPO/MTP 12 or 8 ribbon fiber cable up to 150 m when using an OM4-grade MultiMode (MM) fiber.
