Looks like you’re right. Too many 7xxx model numbers. Either way, same result. The MAC layer in the switch treats it like a QSFP port would be. From: Tim Jackson [mailto:jackson@gmail.com] Sent: Monday, February 5, 2018 9:11 PM To: Ryan, Spencer Cc: Hunter Fuller

You don’t use 40G modules at all. Just 4 x 10G SFP+. The Broadcom trident chip is configured at the MAC layer for 40G, so it’s identical to a real 40G port inside. Some more reading: https://www.arista.com/assets/data/pdf/Whitepapers/AgilePorts_over_DWDM_Final.pdf Spencer Ryan | Senior

I suspect that implies that you can just take a 40Gbase-SR4 module and break it out into individual "10G" multi-mode pairs for DWDM use. Has anyone tried this? I'm also very interested in using that strategy. On Mon, Feb 5, 2018 at 1:36 PM Ryan, Spencer wrote: > Indeed. Arista

Many switches based on BCM Trident ASIC allow you to configure 4 consecutive SFP+ ports as 40G link (not LACP, but using real hardware 40G framing). In such case, you can plug 4 DWDM SFP+ modules directly into the switch, without the need for any reformer. M. On Mon, 5 Feb 2018 20:03:33

Re: 40G reforming

Whether a 40G port can be broken into 4x10G is dependent on the router/switch hardware and the optic you use. Good news is that most 40G ports are capable of being broken out into 4x10G, since a 40G port is usually operating as 4x10G internally anyway to the ASIC. The QSFP you'll need would be a

hey, I want to take advantage of the fact that 40G is transported as four individual streams. Each of the four streams are to be converted from 850 nm to a 1550 DWDM channel (one channel per stream). And the reverse at the other end of the link. You probably want something similar to:

RE: 40G reforming

40G is either 4 x 10G over a single pair, or broken out into 8 fibers in the short or parallel versions. Almost all Ethernet platforms support running most or all of their 40G ports as 1 x 40 or 4 x 10. When using the breakout cables though your options are usually more limited. A 1U switch

I may need to clarify that I do not want to break the port into 4x10G as such. To the switch this will be an ordinary 40G link to another switch far away. I want to take advantage of the fact that 40G is transported as four individual streams. Each of the four streams are to be converted from 850

Hello Is it possible to reform a 40G signal as individual 10G links? The idea is to use a 40G QSFP multimode MTP module such as https://www.fs.com/products/44058.html. Then connect it using a MTP breakout cable such as https://www.fs.com/products/68049.html to get four dual fiber connectors.
