4 Gb/s cable assemblies integrate Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) passive and active transceivers into a high-performance cable assembly designed to meet and support high-speed data rates up to 4.25 Gb/s. Active assemblies permit cable lengths up to 15.0m (49.21'). Passive assemblies meet eye-pattern specifications up to 3.0m (9.84').
The SFP system follows the function of standard Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) products, with reduced size and increased data-transfer rates. The SFP 4 Gb/s cables, along with all Molex SFP products, are multi-sourced, industry-standard products, featuring a common design interface for use with multiple data transfer protocols, including FibreChannel, Gigabit Ethernet and InfiniBand*.
