Driving Your Short-Reach Interconnects

Often used for short-reach, Direct Attach, Active Copper and Active Optical Cables (sometimes called DAC, ACC and AOC respectively) are an indispensable part of any network.

Terminated with transceiver-style connectors, they are designed to be used in the same ports as a typical SFP+ or QSFP transceiver, with no need for adaptors or converters.

Direct Attach Cable

Direct Attach Cables transmit information passively between the two connected ports.

Available in various lengths :-

0.5m, 1.0m,2.0m, 3.0m, 4.0m, 5.0m, 6.0m 7.0m

Similar to a Direct Attach Cable, Active Copper Cables draw power from the switch in order to extend the reach of the signal, as well as allow the use of a thinner gauge cable. Standard lengths up to 7m, custom lengths also available.
