What is a Compatible QTAPCABLE3M?

Compatible QTAPCABLE3M are an equivalent solution for overpriced original QTAPCABLE3M from Chelsio, which primarily serve as a margin product for the manufacturer, filling the pockets of the company at your expense. As today's standard for the transmission of electrical signals in a network, for example in a data center, compatible Chelsio QTAPCABLE3M Direct Attach Cables (DAC) provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks on short distances without having to compromise the arbitrary Chelsio price policy of the large world conglomerates. A Chelsio compatible QTAPCABLE3M offers the same range of functions as an original QTAPCABLE3M and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of Chelsio compatible QTAPCABLE3M and of original QTAPCABLE3M is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. Chelsio compatible QTAPCABLE3M from the brand BlueLAN use only high-quality brand cables (such as Belden, Molex or TE Connectivity) and high-quality ICs (such as Maxim Integrated or Netlogic) and therefore have the same quality or even a better quality as the original QTAPCABLE3M from Chelsio. If you are not yet familiar with compatible Chelsio QTAPCABLE3M, please let us know. You can request a test sample from to try out a compatible Chelsio QTAPCABLE3M product in your system.

Benefits of a Compatible QTAPCABLE3M

QTAPCABLE3M DACs are special industrial products which, as a compatible variant, should only be obtained from a specialist in order to benefit from the following advantages of compatible QTAPCABLE3M.

Low Cost

QTAPCABLE3M DACs from Chelsio cost a lot more in comparison to compatible QTAPCABLE3M. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible QTAPCABLE3M from third-party suppliers. Depending on the number of ports required this can quickly increase the cost of a network. In this case, however, it is important not to purchase any compatible QTAPCABLE3M junk products where the quality suffers during the production or already during the product design process which leads to link errors or complete failures of a connection after a short period of use. But even long-life compatible QTAPCABLE3M with high-quality components like the compatible QTAPCABLE3M of the BlueLAN brand from, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible QTAPCABLE3M no-name products or conventional compatible QTAPCABLE3M brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original QTAPCABLE3M.

Standardized Production

By setting standards and norms for QTAPCABLE3M DACs in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible QTAPCABLE3M can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible QTAPCABLE3M, the correct design of the compatible QTAPCABLE3M and the exact operation of the compatible QTAPCABLE3M. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible QTAPCABLE3M can be just as qualitative as the original QTAPCABLE3M. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible QTAPCABLE3M insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible QTAPCABLE3M meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible QTAPCABLE3M of the brand BlueLAN from meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.

Compatible Programming

Compatible QTAPCABLE3M must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible QTAPCABLE3M can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible QTAPCABLE3M. Incorrect programming can lead to functional restrictions as well as a complete lack of function. It is therefore advisable to look for a trusted supplier for the acquisition of compatible QTAPCABLE3M, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible QTAPCABLE3M.

Long Warranty Periods

Some manufacturers do offer limited warranty periods on original products, usually about one year. Others offer life-long warranty periods. However, this lifetime refers to the time while the product is officially offered. If this is terminated as End of Life (EOL) product, the warranty expires. What this says about the real lifetime of a product is left to your imagination. Compatible QTAPCABLE3M of the brand BlueLAN, on the other hand, have a warranty period of 5 years and an average life expectancy of 10 years with continuous individual support from In the unexpectedly occurring event of a fault of the compatible QTAPCABLE3M you will always receive a corresponding exchange cable for your compatible QTAPCABLE3M within the guarantee period.

Special products

Some cable variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible QTAPCABLE3M can be adapted in such a way that even cable types with other specifications which are not officially supported by the manufacturer can be used to enable special applications or higher ranges. Compatible QTAPCABLE3M of the brand BlueLAN from are 100% compatible, are MSA and RoHS compliant, have an above average lifetime and are available for more than 165 different vendors.

Disadvantages of a Compatible QTAPCABLE3M

Compatible QTAPCABLE3M from offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original QTAPCABLE3M. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible QTAPCABLE3M, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.

Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible QTAPCABLE3M, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible QTAPCABLE3M products that lack precision, show incompatibilities, cause hardware damage or are simply sloppily manufactured and thus endangering security. Since you cannot notice this by just looking at the compatible QTAPCABLE3M product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.

Toxic Substances in QTAPCABLE3M - If the production of compatible QTAPCABLE3M is not observed to comply with valid industrial and environmental standards, this will lead to a risk to life and limb for you and your employees. Lead and other toxins are used in unclean production processes for compatible QTAPCABLE3M, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.

In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible QTAPCABLE3M and endangering our environment, saving on certifications such as ISO9001 or non-compliance with work laws and work standards are other aspects on how to minimize the total price of a compatible QTAPCABLE3M product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible QTAPCABLE3M or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible QTAPCABLE3M for a time.

Is a Compatible QTAPCABLE3M as good as an Original?

Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible QTAPCABLE3M from do not have any disadvantages compared to original QTAPCABLE3M. Nowadays, there are many compatible QTAPCABLE3M that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible QTAPCABLE3M from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible QTAPCABLE3M, inferior compatible QTAPCABLE3M can already lead to this in a short time. Reasons for this are poor processing, failure to comply with standards and norms and, above all, the use of cables and ICs from Asian manufacturers, in the worst case from China, which have not been able, as of now, to match the quality of traditional companies for transmission technology from the US by far. As with any electronic component, this is naturally reflected in the quality of the compatible QTAPCABLE3M product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.

Does a Compatible QTAPCABLE3M Void the Warranty of My Chelsio Hardware?

No. The use of compatible QTAPCABLE3M in Chelsio hardware does not void or compromise the warranty of the hardware. Since networks are becoming increasingly heterogeneous and many products from different manufacturers are used, it is only natural for QTAPCABLE3M not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible QTAPCABLE3M, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a QTAPCABLE3M that does not have its own current source.
