Siemon’s SFP+ direct attached passive copper cables have been tested by the University of New Hampshire’s Interoperability Lab (UNH IOL) and passed their 10Gigabit Ethernet interoperability testing with several vendors’ devices including Brocade, Dell, Cisco, Mellanox, Arista, Arastra and F5. 

The report includes seven different SFP+ devices and five Siemon cable lengths from one to seven metres long. Five different link tests were performed employing various combinations of powering up the devices under test. 

“All cables passed interoperability testing,” the company said in a release. “In addition, a Packet Error Ratio Estimation test was run to determine if any packets are lost and there were no errors.”

Siemon’s Interconnect product line includes SFP+, QSFP+, miniSAS, QSFP+ to SFP+ Breakout, and miniSAS Fan-out passive copper cables for use in point to point applications advanced data centres.
