Cables are low power plug and play AOC replacements for port-to-port and rack-to-rack connectivity.
HiWire LP SPAN AECs are used to SPAN between racks for Distributed Disaggregated Chassis (DDC) and TOR to Leaf interconnect applications.
- LP (Low Power) up to 50% less power than optics
- Up to 5m length (7m on request)
- Up to 2.5x longer life than optics
- Up to 100x better MTBF than optics
Credo’s HiWire™ Low Power SPAN Active Electrical Cable (LP SPAN AEC) is a reliable, plug & play replacement of Active Optical Cable (AOC) for high-speed interconnects (up to 400Gbps). Intended for rack-to-rack connectivity, these cables support up to 7m reach, consume 75% less power than optics, cost up to 50% less than optics, and offer a 10-year service life.
Credo’s CAC4XXXX1D1D-Cx-HW HiWire LP SPAN AEC is designed for telecom and data center use.
