Maximizing Network Efficiency with our High-Performing OSFP Connectors


In this whitepaper, we’ll break down and understand OSFP connectors, their features, benefits, and specifications. Octal Small Form-factor Pluggable (OSFP) is a pluggable form factor developed by the OSFP MSA group, which was launched by Google and led by Arista Networks. OSFP is a groundbreaking form factor that supports eight high-speed electrical channels at 400 Gb/s (8x50G or 4x100G), and it can accommodate up to 32 ports per 1U front panel and 14.4 Tb/s per 1U swap slot. The OSFP optics are being developed to improve signal integrity and thermal performance to support the next generation of 800G optics. Moreover, the OSFP can also work with 100G QSFP optics.
