The 10G Passive SFP Twinaxial Direct Attach Cable is designed to support connections1 for 10 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet switches with 10 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet uplink, much more faster than SFP which only supports 2.5 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet. With four cable models including the DEM-CB100S, DEM-CB300S, DEM-CB500S, and DEM-CB700S, this series is suitable for very short distances up to 7 meters (23 feet), and is ideal for highly cost-effective networking connectivity between switches and servers within a rack or in adjacent racks.
- High speeds and lower latency result in faster transmissions than other types of cables
- SFP connectors on cable mean no need for expensive SFP transceivers and fiber cables
- Lower power consumption than other cables like 10GBASE-T or 10GBASE-CX4 means savings on energy usage and costs
