ANAHEIM, Calif., March 19, 2013 -- Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd., a leading global provider in advanced optical solutions, today introduced its next-generation of active optical cables (AOCs) at OFC/NFOEC which is taking place 17-21 March 2013, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA, USA.
Extremely fast bandwidth growth and demand for rich media put tremendous pressure on storage and computing resources. Available with QSFP+ and CXP form factors, Sumitomo Electric AOC Connects cables are high-performance active optical cables with maximum aggregate bandwidth of 120 Gb/s.
Providing benefits over copper cables designed for InfiniBand QSFP SDR/DDR/QDR/FDR/EDR and 40/100 Gb/s Ethernet applications, AOC Connects cables support distances up to 100 meters while reducing the weight, density, and power consumption over traditional copper alternatives. Sumitomo Electric's next generation AOC technology will have an important impact on the industry.
