Vendor compatible cables to support up to 100Gbps Ethernet
Availalbe from stock, Sterling 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 100Gbps.The cables are often used for data centre short reach interconnects. They are terminated with transceiver-style ends to be used in the same ports where optical transceivers can be utiised. Protocol independent, they can support a variety of data rates including Ethernet, Infiniband and Fiber channel.
The active optical range of cables are designed to support Ethernet, fibre channel, and Infiniband networking for high-performance computing, storage networks and datacentres.
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.
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.
