SIS Cable Interoperability Test Reports

Siemon's SFP+ Direct Attached Copper Cable Assemblies Pass Interoperability Testing with Multiple 10Gigabit Ethernet Equipment Manufacturers

Siemon's SFP+ direct attached passive copper cables have been tested by the University of New Hampshire's Interoperability Lab (UNH IOL) and passed their 10Gigabit Ethernet interoperability testing with several vendors' devices including: Brocade, Dell, Cisco, Mellanox, Arista, Arastra and F5.

The report includes seven different SFP+ devices and five Siemon cable lengths from one to seven meters long. Five different link tests were performed employing various combinations of powering up the devices under test. All cables passed interoperability testing. In addition, a Packet Error Ratio Estimation test was run to determine if any packets are lost and there were no errors.

This interoperability testing is part of Siemon's on-going program to certify our cables are suitable for use across a broad range of high speed networking equipment including some equipment that may require use of proprietary and higher cost assemblies.

Siemon's QSFP+ Direct Attached Copper Cable Assemblies Pass Interoperability Testing with Multiple 40Gigabit Ethernet Equipment Manufacturers

Siemon's QSFP+ direct attached passive copper cables have been tested by the University of New Hampshire's Interoperability Lab (UNH IOL) and passed their 40Gigabit Ethernet interoperability testing with Broadcom and Extreme Networks 40G switches.

This interoperability testing is part of Siemon's on-going program to certify our cables are suitable for use across a broad range of high speed networking equipment. This testing also demonstrates that it is acceptable to use Siemon assemblies as an alternative to proprietary, higher cost assemblies required by some equipment manufacturers.

The report includes three different QSFP+ 40G Ethernet devices: the Broadcom BCM56840, the Extreme Networks Summit X670 and the Extreme Networks BlackDiamond 8800 series switches. The testing includes five Siemon QSFP+ cable lengths from one to six meters long.

Five different link tests were performed employing various combinations of powering up the devices under test. All cables passed interoperability testing. In addition, a Packet Error Ratio Estimation test was run to determine if any packets are lost and there were no errors.
