What are Optical Cables by Corning?
Optical Cables by Corning are active optical cable (AOC). AOC is a cabling technology that accepts the same electrical inputs
as a traditional copper cable, but uses optical fiber “between the connectors.” AOC uses electrical-to-optical conversion
on the cable ends to improve speed and distance performance of the cable without sacrificing compatibility with standard electrical interfaces.
Why Choose Optical Cables over Copper?
With state-of-the-art copper connectivity at its limits and new consumer applications driving consumer bandwidth
demands to 10+ Gb/s, consumers are demanding innovative footprints and smaller cables.
Compared to equivalent copper cables, Optical Cables by Corning are:
