gbics Active Optical Cables (AOC) are suitable for short distances and offer a flexible way to connect within racks and across racks. Active optical cables are much thinner and lighter than copper cables, which makes cable management easier. AOCs enable efficient system airflow, which is critical in high-density racks. gbics currently offers active optical cables in lengths of 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10 metres as standard and can manufacture bespoke lengths up to 100 metres on request.
An added advantage of using gbics AOCs is our ability to code for multi-vendor solutions, allowing you to connect from one vendor’s switch to another vendor's switch or NIC. Available vendors can be chosen from the relevant drop down boxes. If you cannot see the vendor you require please call the sales team on 01285 886444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org as we may still be able to code for you.
