Introducing: Active Optical Cables

Precision Optical Technologies

Precision Optical Technologies is pleased to introduce Active Optical Cables, available in custom distances up to 20 meters. Each AOC holds a lifetime warranty with 100% guaranteed compatibility.


 The PRE-QSFP-QSFP-AOCxxm 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP parallel active optical cable is a low power consumption, long reach solution for 40 Gigabit Ethernet Applications. It is a cable for short-range multi-lane data communications. The PRE-QSFP-QSFP-AOCxxM is comprised of 4 data lanes; each lane is capable of operating at approximately 10.3Gb/s.


SFP+ to SFP+

 The PRE-SFP10G-AOCxxM serves 10GbE applications; it is a direct-attach fiber assembly with SFP+ connectors. The AOC is suitable for short distances and can be used as an alternate solution to SFP+ passive and active copper cables.


QSFP to 4 SFP+

The PRE-QSFP-4SFP10G-AOCxxM is a parallel four-channel active optical cable breakout solution that is used for 40G to 4x 10G applications. Each QSFP/SFP+ splitter AOC features one QSFP connector (40Gbps) and four SFP+ connectors (10Gbps).
