Stacked Belly-to-Belly Cages Support Single PCB

Boasting significant cost reductions, TE Connectivity’s zQSFP+ Stacked Belly-to-Belly Cages support a single printed circuit board (PCB) architecture in each line card, versus two PCBs. Designed for high-density switches with 48 or 64 silicon port designs, the cages address the requirements for higher density switch designs, including Open Compute Project (OCP) reference designs. By supporting a single PCB architecture in each line card, these products reduce design and manufacturing costs. Like the rest of TE's zQSFP+ portfolio, these cages support up to 28G NRZ and 56G PAM-4 data rates to achieve faster speeds in these high-density switches. TE's zQSFP+ stacked belly-to-belly cages are dual-sourced with Molex and are drop-in replacements.
