Low-Profile Copper Cable Fits Tight Situations
Addressing the needs of dense, higher-port-count switch installations using 10 GbE, FCoE, or 8 Gigabit Fiber Channel, a low-profile SFP+ direct-attach copper cable assembly from W.L. Gore and Associates is half the cross-sectional area of OM3 fiber optic cable and one-third the size of 62.5/125 optical cable, with a significantly reduced bend radius. Suitable for use at lengths from 0.5 to 3 meters, a 2.10-mm diameter version is used at distances up to 2 meters and a 2.80-mm cable serves at lengths of 3 meters.
