TE Connectivity's QSFP-DD cages, connectors and cable assemblies, available now from RS Components, address next-generation data centre demands by increasing density in an existing QSFP form factor to reach speeds up to 400Gbps. These products are created for 28G NRZ and 56G PAM-4 protocols, with a roadmap to 112G PAM-4 for future system upgrades.

The company's products work cost-effectively in 15-18W applications by using proprietary heat sink technology. Its cable assemblies are customisable and fully backward-compatible, offering an easy upgrade path from existing QSFP solutions.

The products meet design needs with custom cage configurations with light pipes and heatsinks and custom cable assemblies.

Typical applications include servers, switches routers, storage devices, hyperscale data centres, and high-performance computing.
