With the deployment of 40G systems in the data center, a lot of confusion occurred like: can the switches support such a high speed Ethernet? Can the optical transceivers be compatible with the switches? Which kind of optical transceiver is more cost-efficient? In order to solve these questions, the first and foremost thing is to know the most appropriate kind of fiber optic patch cable for the 40G QSFP+ transceiver (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable transceiver) in the 40G connections.

As we all know, to accomplish the connections between these switches, fiber optic patch cord is usually linked to fiber optic transceivers which are plugged in Ethernet switches (as shown in the following picture). The quality of these connections has...
