Direct Attach Cables (DAC) and Active Optical Cables (AOC) are ideal in delivering and enabling ultra-fast and reliable networking architectures for short range situations such as within cabinets or datacentres. Due to their short range and fixed cable / transceiver design they offer high durability, provide low latency and deliver low power consumption. With extensive experience, a large range of stock, Pro Optix are the go to business for fibre optical solutions.
Direct Attach Copper (DAC) offers a cost-effective and simple alternative to 10G, 25G and 100G fibre on short distances and is widely applied in the storage area network, data centres and high-performance computing connectivity.
The low power consumption and low latency proves the solution to be cost-effective. Available to order as passive and active, DAC can be ordered in any distance required within the technical limitations.
When you need an option that is suitable for longer distances than DAC can support, Active Optical Cables (AOC) is the perfect solution.
With many of the same benefits as DAC, such as low weight and low power consumption, AOC also offers durability in terms of bendable cable radius and superior simplicity in comparison to using a transceiver and fibre patch.
