QSFP-DD (Double Density) Interconnect System and Cable Assemblies

QSFP-DD
QSFP-DD Interconnect System’s 8-lane electrical interface transmits up to 28 Gbps NRZ or 56 Gbps PAM-4, up to 200 or 400 Gbps aggregate, with the same module form factor as QSFP Interconnects, making them backward compatible
QSFP-DD (Double Density) Interconnect System and Cable Assemblies
Telecommunication and data center customers have increasing bandwidth requirements and, therefore, require high-density interconnects. QSFP-DD Interconnect System enables faceplate density equal to the current 2x1 QSFP form factor, but with 8-lane ports. In other words, a total of 256 differential pairs with 32 ports delivers double-lane density within the same form factor.
