10/40Gb Ethernet Transceivers

10Gb Ethernet Transceivers

The adoption of 10Gb Ethernet is growing rapidly. For the majority of cabling runs up to 8.5 meters, clients can use Direct Attach Cable (DAC), especially when connecting servers within the same rack between closely located racks. For longer distances, use short or long range transceivers and optical cables.
