NVIDIA MFP7E10-Nxxx Optical Multimode Fiber Cable Product Specifications

Introduction

The NVIDIA MFP7E10-Nxxx MPO-12/APC-to-MPO12/APC (8 fibers) passive optical single mode cable, is designed for linking InfiniBand and Ethernet multimode twin-port OSFP and single-port OSFP and QSFP112 transceivers together.

The Multiple Push On, 12 fiber, Angled Polished Connectors (MPO-12/APC) uses 8 active fibers to transmit light, and 4 inactive fibers as strength members. The APC end has a 8-degree polished angle to deflect internal optical back reflections from entering the transceiver and distorting the signal quality.

Twin-port OSFP 800Gb/s transceivers support two 4-channel fibers which are linked to other twin-port OSFP, single port OSFP or QSFP112 400Gb/s transceivers.

The fibers are “crossover”, Type-B cables that enable directly attaching two transceivers together and aligning the transmit laser fiber on pin 1 to “crosses over” and align with pin 12 of the opposite fiber end transceiver photodetector.

Typical usecase is linking twin port OSFP switches to each other, and to ConnectX-7® network adapters and/or BlueField-3® Data Processing Units (DPUs) in compute and storage servers.

Rigorous cable production testing ensures best out-of-the-box installation experience, performance, and durability. Mellanox optical solutions provide short, medium, and long reach scalability for all topologies, utilizing innovative optical technologies to enable high signal integrity and reliability.
