CPAC-2-40F-C and splitting QSFP+ to 4 SFP+

Hi

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway Appliance 6900
has 2 Network I/O Module slots and the comparison chart says two CPAC-2-40F-C modules,
with 2 QSFP+ each, can be installed in the appliance.

We need appliance with at least 10 SFP+ ports.

Is there a way to split QSFP+ to 4x SFP+?
Does NOS support splitting?
Is there a QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ DAC cable?

Or what solution we can use?
Besides choosing 16200 as it has 4 Network I/O Module slots?

Yes, we sell CPAC-TR-40SR-QSFP-BiDi for that purpose.

P/N CPAC-TR-40SR-QSFP-BiDi sounds like "standard" QSFP+ 40GBase-SR BiDirectional transceiver with Duplex LC connector.

I need to know whether CPAC-2-40F-C module is capable of splitting one 40 Gbps interface to four 10 Gbps interfaces  and whether a cable like
CPAC-TR-40SPLIT-QSFP-SR
CPAC-TR-40SPLIT-QSFP-3M
CPAC-TR-40SPLIT-QSFP-6M
is available and can be bought and compatible with this module.

It seems the break-out cable can be used for CPAP-SSM160 module only.

I checked and you are correct, CPAC-TR-40SR-QSFP-BiDi cannot be used to split the 40GB port into 4x10GB.
The SKUs you mention are not compatible with the 6900 and I am unaware of an alternative other than a different appliance.
