    Breakout vs Single Cables

    alexxdavid

      Hi,

       

      If ports and power is not an issue, is it better or any advantage to use breakout cables (1 x 40GB to 4 x 10GB) or is it preferred to use single cables? Will one be better latency wise? This is to connect to 4 Nutanix Nodes

               Fiber breakout cable is extremely versatile and suitable for use in riser and plenum indoor applications. You can use it in backbone and horizontal runs.

                Each fiber is individually reinforced, so you can divide a breakout cable into individual fiber lines, which enables quick connector termination and eliminates the need for patch panels.

                Fiber breakout cable can be more economical because it requires much less labor to terminate. You may want to choose a cable that has more fibers than you actually need in case of breakage during termination or for future expansion.

                Fiber breakout cable offers advantages over standard patch cords because it eliminates the need for a fiber-optic ducting system.

            Fiber breakout cables are typically used for indoor applications, between an optical distribution frame and an electronic equipment rack, or between two electronic equipment racks. These cables are particularly effective when equipment racks are distributed over a large area (for example several floors in a large building). The end of the breakout cable behaves like a standard single pigtail. The outer jacket of the cable can be stripped.
