TE Connectivity has launched a line of 56-Gbps QSFP56 and SFP56 cable assemblies. The cable assemblies aggregate data rates of 100 and 200 Gbps for data center, test and measurement, and wireless infrastructure applications.

The QSFP56 and SFP56 cable assemblies comply with Ethernet 802.3cd and support 56G PAM4 applications, says TE. Designed to minimize insertion loss and cross talk, the cable assemblies are backward compatible with QSFP and SFP connectors and cages to ease network upgrades, TE adds. TE offers such QSFP28 and SFP28 connectors and cages.

"Our new SFP56 and QSFP56 cable assembly portfolio draws upon TE's vast expertise in high-performance connectivity solutions to enable 100- and 200-gigabit speeds for next-generation communications equipment. Our broad product line helps ensure that TE is a one-stop source for connectivity products" said Jacob Paul, product manager in TE Connectivity's data and devices business unit.
