Siemon’s Active Optical Cables are the smart choice in high-speed cabling, offering a thin, lightweight, multimode fiber cable in simple plug-and-play assemblies. These AOCs are available in a variety of speeds and form factors as well as extended lengths up to 100m, far beyond the capabilities of transceivers and DACs – all at about half the cost.
Advantages of Active Optical Cable:
- Lower cost – AOCs are typically priced at about half the cost of transceivers.
- Longer reach – Siemon’s AOCs are available in lengths from 0.5 meter to 100 meters, well beyond the capacity of DACs and transceivers.
- Lower power consumption – By using less power, your operational costs will be dramatically lower.
- Better airflow – The thinner diameter cable promotes better airflow in the data center as well as having an increased bend radius for easy maneuverability and maintenance.
