New range of optical transceivers, active optical and direct attach cables available

New range of Optical Transceivers, Active Optical and Direct Attach Cables availableCabcon now offer a wide range of optical transceivers, direct attached copper cables (DAC) and active optical transceivers (AOC) for high speed transmission from 100Mbps up to 40Gbps.

Active optical cables (AOC)

The active optical range of cables are designed to support Ethernet, fibre channel, and Infiniband networking for high-performance computing, storage networks and datacentres.

  • SFP+ AOC for 10G Ethernet applications
  • QSFP+ AOC for 40GB Ethernet, FCoE, QDR/DDR/SDR Infiniband
  • Octopus AOC for high density 10GBE applications

Direct attach cables (DAC)

The direct attach cables (DAC) are designed to support a number of cabling standards to support such applications as 40G ethernet, Inifiniband QDR/FDR, datacentre interconnect, rack to rack interconnect, shelf to shelf interconnect plus a number of other options.

  • QSFP+ DAC copper cables for 40GB ethernet and 56G for infiniband standards
  • SFP+ DAC copper cables for 10GB ethernet
  • XFP DAC Copper cables for 10GB ethernet, OC192/STM-64, G.709, 10GB fibre channel and other industry standards
  • CX4 DAC cables for 10G Ethernet at a maximum distance of 15m
  • MiniSAS DAC cable supports 6Gb up to a maximum distance of 15m

Optical transceivers

SFP or small form-factor pluggable or Mini-GBIC (gigabit interface converter) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. They are available in 850nm, 1310nm and 1550nm wavelengths.

  • SFP
  • SFP+
  • QSFP+
  • XFP
  • CX4
  • Xenpak
  • X2

Optical transceivers can be coded to the desired equipment manufacturer. Please contact us for more information.
