Siemon Introduces New Low Power QSFP+ 40Gb/s Active Optical Cabling for High Performance Data Center Applications: Innovative combination of silicon photonics transceiver technology and single mode fiber offers low power, high-speed interconnects that deliver high performance connectivity, increased reliability and extended transmission distances
Siemon, a leading global manufacturer of IT cabling infrastructure systems today introduced its new line of four lane QSFP+ 40Gb/s active optical cabling assemblies, designed to support interconnect applications such as high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking and network storage systems. These high-speed interconnects are a part of Siemon’s Moray™ Active Optical Cabling (AOC) product family and expand Siemon’s extensive portfolio of copper and fiber data center cabling solutions.
The Moray QSFP+ active optical cable assemblies incorporate the lowest power transceiver in the market that typically requires 780mw by utilizing Silicon CMOS Photonics technology, which features an integrated opto-electronic chip with a directly attached fiber and a micro-packaged laser. This “Fiber-to-the-Chip” technology enables Siemon’s Moray active optical cabling to break the cost barriers while decreasing the number of components in the AOC and improving its reliability when
