40GbE Parallel QSFP+ vs Duplex QSFP+ in 40G MMF Cabling

There two ways to deploy 40GbE multimode fiber (MMF) infrastructure. One is using the parallel transceivers with 12-fiber MTP cables. And the other one is to use the duplex transceivers with LC duplex cables (view transceiver options for 40GbE over … Continue reading
