This converter module converts a 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP port into a 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ port. It gives customers the flexibility to use the 40 Gigabit QSFP interface port of a switch with QSFP modules or SFP+ modules.
This flexibility is useful when a specific type of interface is not available as a QSFP module or when customers want to use the same form factor for interfaces across multiple platforms deployed in their network.
Use SFP+ in QSFP port
Compatible with a long list of switches with QSFP interfaces.
