Active Optical Cables (AOCs)

Active optical cables (AOCs) can be defined as an fiber optic patch cord terminated with optical transceivers on both ends. It 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.

The major benefits of Active Optical Cable as below:
• Longer Reach and Higher Bandwidth
• Secure, Reliable Transmission
• Limited EMI/RFI Exposure
• Low Bit-Error Rate (BER) – 10-15
• Smaller Size and Lower Weight Compared to Copper Cables
