Active Optical Cables

laserwire 10G SFP Finisar active optical cable

 

 

Laserwire™ is a family of next generation cables for low cost, high speed serial connectivity. laserwire 10Gb/s Finisar active optical cableLaserwire is an active optical cable which allows for the transmission of data while reducing the weight, density, and power consumption of comparable interconnects. Laserwire is vertically integrated, utilizing Finisar’s internally designed ASIC and VCSEL technology. Laserwire cables can be used to connect a range of different systems and equipment via Finisar’s adapter portfolio. Adapters are available for use in SFP+, XFP, and QSFP+ enabling a true plug and play for data center environments.

Key Advantages of Laserwire™:

  • Lowest weight for high port count architectures
  • Small bend radius for easy installations
  • Low power consumption enabling a greener datacenter
  • Small Laserwire Jack enables compact host board designs
  • Low cost solution for datacenters
  • Integrated status LED for monitoring purposes
  • First ‘Plug and Play’ solution for serial 10gbps interconnects
