PLAYA VISTA, Calif.--()--Due to the high demand for Cisco data center solutions worldwide, Belkin today announced the addition of Cisco compliant SFP+ and QSFP+ cables to its product portfolio. The addition of the Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP+) and Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable (QSFP+) cables provides an affordable cabling option for data center managers.
“With budget constraints currently affecting nearly every organization, Belkin can provide data center and IT managers with a cost effective alternative that not only meets the Cisco standards required, but comes with Belkin’s quality assurance and tech support.”
Belkin’s SFP+ and QSFP+ cables are designed for compatibility with Cisco network switches, routers and storage devices utilized in data center cabling infrastructure. Available in a 10-gigabit speed application for the SFP+ and 40-gigabit for the QSFP+, the cables use cutting edge technology to provide a cost effective, high-speed solution. Offering a complete integration with Cisco data center solutions, Belkin’s SFP+ and QSFP+ cables are built and tested to the same level of reliability, compatibility and performance as those sold by Cisco at a fraction of the cost.
Unlike fiber and copper cables, SFP+ and QSFP+ cables use a digital transceiver to drive data throughput – acting as an interface between a networking device and its interconnecting cable. Featuring easy plug and play capabilities, Belkin’s SFP+ and QSFP+ cables require no field termination and time-consuming testing. Being hot pluggable, the cables are easy to install and low maintenance, ideal for use in large data centers, such as those used by hospitals, universities and the government.
“Cisco customers are increasingly switching to SFP+ and QSFP+ cables for faster data throughput and a smaller footprint over analog copper,” said Luis Artiz, director of product management for Belkin. “With budget constraints currently affecting nearly every organization, Belkin can provide data center and IT managers with a cost effective alternative that not only meets the Cisco standards required, but comes with Belkin’s quality assurance and tech support.”
Belkin’s SFP+ and QSFP+ cables are currently available worldwide though Belkin’s network of distributors and value added resellers. All SFP+ and QSFP+ cables come with a Belkin warranty (up to five years) and 24-hour tech support. For more information on Belkin’s cables, visit http://www.belkin.com/cables.
