This adapter supports all SFP28 optics and cable reaches, such as SFP28-SR, SFP28-LR, SFP28 Passive Copper Cable and SFP28 Active Optical Cable. I2C read port information comes from SFP28 port module, not QSA Module.
Smooth Speed Migration
HeyOptics QSA adapter Module offers 25 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for QSFP28-only platforms. It allows smooth and cost-effective migration to 100 Gigabit Ethernet by providing an option to use lower-speed.
Convenient and Flexible Use
With QSA adapter, you can flexibly use any SFP28 module or cable to connect to a lower-speed port on the other end of the network with low insertion loss and crosstalk. Plug and play, without any setup.[Note: This module can only reach 10G rate when used on Mellanox equipment, not 25G.]
QSA vs QSFP28 Breakout Cable
Not all the 100G cards and switches can be split into 4 x 25 Gb mode, for example, the Mellanox QSFP28 cards do not support the QSFP28 to SFP28 breakout, but they support QSA. And QSA can be used for longer transmission distances than QSFP28 Breakout Cable.
