Direct Attach Copper and Active Optical Cables

What if you could increase bandwidth while reducing cable density, weight and power consumption?

HPE 40 QSFP+ Direct Attach Cables (AOCs) provide 40 Gb high speed connections to meet the exponential data growth in data centers and cloud-based services. Compared to traditional copper cables, the 40Gb QSFP+ AOCs are much lighter and lower power. With reaches of 7, 10 and 15 meters, HPE 40G QSFP+ AOCs are ideal cable solutions for high–density data center and high performance computing applications.

The breakout HPE 40Gb QSFP+ AOCs also allow aggregation of separate 10 Gb connections, providing smooth and flexible transition from 10 Gb to 40 Gb.


HPE 40G QSFP+ Active Optical Cables offers a cost-effective alternative to using transceivers for 40 Gb or 4x 10Gb connections.

Low power consumption and lower weight compared to direct attach copper cables.

Small bend radius and diameter to allow more air flow and save more space.
