Choosing the correct fiber connectivity options for your 40G, 100G, and 400G deployments is a real struggle. So many options… do I need Method A, Method B, or so help me – Method C polarity? Should my trunks be male or female PanMPO? What in the world is a FAP? What are the part numbers that I need to order correctly?
Luckily, Panduit, in collaboration with Cisco, has put together a series of ordering guides that makes this process much easier. We have created three separate guides that assist you with the ordering of 40G, 100G, or 400G deployments. You just follow the three easy steps, and you will have the correct part numbers that you need for your whole fiber connectivity deployment.
Step 1: Choose the correct Cisco transceiver for your application
This example is taken from the 40G Fiber Optic Transceiver Cable Order Guide.
Step 2: Identify the enclosure systems(s) that meet your application needs.
Step 3: Select the components to build out your end-to-end fiber connectivity channel.
This example is taken from the 40G Fiber Optic Transceiver Cable Order Guide and will work with the QSFP-40G-SR4, QSFP-40G-SR4-S and QSFP-40G-CSR4 transceivers.
Panduit has taken a very complicated process and made it much easier. It’s as easy as 1… 2… 3! Below are links to the Panduit/Cisco 40G, 100G, and 400G Fiber Optic Tranceiver Cable Order Guides for you to download and order the correct fiber connectivity options for your deployment.
