Belden Expands Data Center Solutions With SFP+ Direct Attached Cables

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has expanded its line of data center solutions with SFP+ Direct Attached Cables designed to provide a cost-effective way to deliver more bandwidth in data centers.

Belden’s SFP+ Direct Attached Cables deliver lower power and latency with higher density. These SFP+ cables are a low cost alternative to traditional fiber and twisted-pair copper cabling in top-of-rack and middle-of-rack data center deployments.

To meet the most stringent signal transmission performance requirements, SFP+ Direct Attached Cables are manufactured with Belden Lightskew series cable that offers intra-pair delay skew as low as 10ps/m, silver-plated conductors, aluminum/Mylar foil and tinned copper braiding and an FT4/CL2-rated PVC jacket.

Thoroughly evaluated and tested by a third-party, the zinc die-cast connectors with easy pull-to-release action are compatible with virtually all SFP+ Direct Attached compliant devices. The Interoperability report from the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab is available by contacting Belden Tech Support.

In addition, because Belden offers SFP+ Direct Attached Cables in one-foot increments, cable management in high-density applications is significantly simplified with less slack and easier reconfigurations.
