Not all networks are monogamous in their hardware brands and sometimes each of these systems requires different coding in their DAC to be recognized properly by the host device. GigaTech codes each DAC in house, allowing such solutions as:

  • Hassle-free connections between different OEM hardware brands
  • Reduction of overall equipment cost
  • Consolidation of hardware connection
  • Terminated & tested at factory ensuring 100% compatibility and consistent transmission performance

Customer has a 40G backbone using Cisco Nexus as their core switch connecting to the Arista 7250.

– Cisco N9K-M12PQ, which takes the QSFP-H40G-CUxM
– Arista 7250QX-64, which takes the CAB-Q-Q-xM


Cisco and Arista would have required the end user purchase separate QSFP+ optics and a fiber cable to connect.
1) Cisco QSFP-40G-SR4 – List Price $2995
2) Arista QSFP-40G-SR4 – List Price $1495
3) MTP to MTP 1M Fiber Cable- Approximately $200
Total Cost: $4690

This client was very specific and needed custom lengths so that the cables fit perfectly in the cable management without excess slack or looping. We were able to provide not only custom coded cables, but lengths that Cisco and Arista do not offer.

2) HP 455883-B21- List Price $799
3) LC-LC 3M Fiber Cable- Approximately $20
