40G QSFP+ to 4x 10G SFP+ Transponder


  • The FRM220-40G-1Q4S is a 40G QSFP+ to 4 x 10G SFP+ transponder that provides media conversion and distance extension for 40G over 4 x 10G links.
  • Meets the growing need for more bandwidth for data centres and enterprises.
  • The emergence of high-end servers and Ethernet switches with 40G Ethernet interfaces increases the need for media conversion (multi-mode to single-mode) and link range extension.
  • FRM220-40G-1Q4S is a two slot wide hot-swappable card with one QSFP+ slot for QSFP+ 40G transceiver and four SFP+ slots for SFP+ 10G transceivers.
  • The installation and setup is simple plug and play.
  • Can be inserted into any FRM220-CH20 chassis
  • HTTP / SNMP management via FRM220 Chassis with NMC
  • Multiple functions in one module: 40G converter/repeater and quad 10G optical multiplexer
  • 40G link interface --Ethernet/IEEE: 802.3ba 40GE-LR4
  • 40G multi-link (fibre) interfaces --Ethernet/IEEE: 802.3ba XLAUI and OIF: CEI-11G
