Shaxon copper 10 Gigabit Ethernet cable comes in either an active or passive Twinax cable assembly and connects directly into an SFP+ housing. Generally, Twinax cables shorter than 7 meters are passive and those longer than 7 meters are active. This type of connection is able to transmit at 10 gigabits/second full duplex speed over 5 meter distances. SFP+ offers 15 to 25 times lower transceiver latency than current 10GBASE-T Cat 6/Cat 6a/Cat 7 cabling systems: 0.1 ?s for Twinax with SFP+ versus 1.5 to 2.5 ?s for current 10GBASE-T specification. The power draw of Twinax with SFP+ is around 0.1 watts, which is also much better than 4?8 watts for 10GBASE-T.
