40G 3R Transponder


40G 3R Transponder
  • FRM220-40G-2Q is a 40G QSFP+ to 40G QSFP+ 3R transponder that provides media conversion and distance extension for 40G Ethernet links.
  • Meets the growing need for more bandwidth for data centres and enterprises.
  • 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 (single-mode to single-mode) extension.
  • Hot-swappable with two QSFP+ sockets for 40G QSFP+ transceivers.
  • Installation and setup is simple plug and play.
  • Can be inserted into any FRM220-CH20, CH08, CH04 chassis or CH02M, CH02/SMT standalone chassis
  • Device management via FRM220 chassis with NMC
  • 40G link interface --Ethernet/IEEE: 802.3ba 40GE-SR4/LR4/ER4
  • 40G multi-link (fiber) interfaces --Ethernet/IEEE: 802.3ba XLAUI and OIF: CEI-11G
