Our compatible Extreme Networks – 10G to 100G PDAC, ADAC, AOC and Breakout options offer flexible and reliable ways for high-speed interconnections, ensuring seamless connectivity and performance

Extreme Networks 10G-100G Cable & Breakout Compatibles

Our compatible Extreme Networks DAC (PDAC/ADAC) cables are ideal for connecting equipment ports that are within 10 meters of each other, while AOC cables should be considered for longer distances. Extreme Networks Cables (Direct Attach Copper) are cost-effective high-speed copper cables that do not use optical lasers while AOC (Active Optical Cable), on the other hand, are high-speed optical cables with built-in optical transceivers for multi-mode optical fiber interconnections. AOC cables have several advantages, including being lighter, reaching longer distances (up to 100 meters compared to DAC’s 10 meters), having a smaller bending radius, and being more resistant to electromagnetic radiation (EMI). AOC cables are also easier to install and have less optical budget loss compared to traditional solutions with separate transceivers and patch cables. Moreover, AOC cables are safer as they have fewer potential failure points due to the absence of optical connectors. We’d love to hear from you – Contact Us!
