High-speed Data Centers and Networks require cutting edge I/O cables. Hitachi Cable America (HCA) offers Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables that utilize OmniBit® parallel pair-based cable technology supporting the fastest data rates across the spectrum of distances in data centers, with unparalleled signal integrity, low latency, low insertion loss and superior EMI protection. Hitachi’s high speed copper and fiber optic cable assemblies comply with the latest communication protocols.
The Apresia line of premium performance Active Optical Cables (AOC) supports high-speed needs, with the added benefit of low power consumption and extended distances. Data center managers can maximize energy efficiency while supporting current and next-generation applications and protocols at distances suitable for the largest mega-scale facilities.
Hitachi DAC assemblies deliver today’s 25Gbit/s per channel as well as tomorrow’s 50Gbit/s per channel requirements. Configurations include: QSFP28/56 and SFP28/56 in the same Direct Attach Copper cable assemblies. Other configurations such as QSFP-DD and OSFP are available for sampling. Solutions for technical standards such as SFF-8436, IEEE 802.3ba & IEEE 802.3cd at speeds up to 56Gbps per channel are in qualification testing now.
Come and visit us in November 13th-16th at the Colorado Convention Center during the SuperComputing 2017 tradeshow in the Ethernet Alliance booth, Booth #842. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
