40G & 100G AOC

Active optical cables (AOC) use electrical-to-optical conversion to improve speed and distance performance without sacrificing compatibility with standard electrical interfaces.

OptoSpan offers a complete line of active optic cables designed for any interface. With higher bandwidth and a reach up to 100 meters, OptoSpan AOC offer better performance than regular copper cables at a fraction of the cost of other providers. All cables are built with a lighter weight design, EMI immunity, lower interconnection and power consumption and with optical/electrical connection according to QSFP+ and SFP+ Multi-Source Agreements.
