Cost Effective High-Bandwidth

10GbE SFP+ Copper Connection

The EA1 series 10G SFP+ DAC is a copper cable designed with SFP+ connectors on both ends and is less expensive than a 10G optical transceiver that support connections of up to 10Gbps data transmission rate. Servers and network equipment can be directly connected to ToR (Top-of-Rack) switches, which also directly saves on costs.


High Performance and Reliability

Compatible with SFP+ MSA

The SFP+ 10G DAC cable is compliant with the current SFF-8431, SFF-8432 and SFP+ MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) specifications and is compatible with EDIMAX and other brand products with standard SFP+/SFP ports, offering you an array of options with top performance and reliability.


Wide Compatibility

Backward Compatible to SFP (1Gbps)

The EA1 Series is backward compatible with the SFP (1Gbps). Offering shorter-distance, high-density connections between networking equipments such as network switch, server, Network Attached Storage (NAS), storage area network, NIC (PCI-E adapter), data center or high-performance computing.


Easy Plug-and-Play

Hot-Pluggable SFP+ Supported

Equipped with plug-and-play Hot-Pluggable or said Hot-Swappable SFP+ connectors on both ends. No configuration required, in addition, there is no need to shut down or put the data on hold when support inserting or pulling out the transceivers to avoid network down-time.
