9Q series copper cable assemblies

3M™ 9Q series 100G QSFP28 direct attach copper cable assemblies utilise 3M Twin Axial Cable technology to create a highly-flexible, foldable, high-performance solution with bandwidths up to 100 Gbps to connect servers, switches, storage, and other high-speed equipment.

The unique 3M core cable technology allows 3M cable assemblies to be extremely low profile and lightweight while virtually eliminating high-frequency resonance, allowing the cable to fold and bend with minimal to no impact on performance. The cable’s very small bend radius and low profile enable efficient routing in tight spaces. The flat, thin profile allows cables to be stacked to create tighter cable bundles, helping to minimise obstructions to airflow.

3M has presented New 3M™ 100G QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper Cable Assemblies, 9Q Series are passive copper cable assemblies which utilize 3M Twin Axial Cable technology to create a highly-flexible, foldable, high-performance solution.
