InfiniBand FDR Active Optical Cable for HPC, 16G Fibre Channel subject of Finisar demo

NOVEMBER 16, 2010 -- Finisar Corp. (NASDAQ: FNSR) says it will demonstrate what it touts as the industry's first InfiniBand FDR active optical cable at SuperComputing 2010. The Quadwire FDR cable will transmit 56-Gbps data across four lanes of traffic at 14 Gbps each, Finisar says.

As the speed of supercomputing clusters continues to accelerate, the high-performance computing (HPC) and data center markets demand higher-speed interconnections. The new FDR active optical cables use 14 Gbps VCSEL technology to provide data throughput in the form of a compact, lightweight, and flexible optical cable suitable to support those very high density deployments, Finisar says.
