AOC Breakout

Active optical cables (AOC) can be configured to support connectivity between different port types. A QSFP-DD to OSFP AOC allow for two different port types to be connected. AOC breakout cables can also be used to connect ports with different channel counts. A QSFP-DD to dual QSFP56 breakout AOC can be used to connect a single 2x200G port to two different 200G ports.
