GigaPOF® is the Practical Optical Fiber
for Data Center Interconnects

Combining flexibility with outstanding performance, GigaPOF offers a practical alternative to traditional copper cables for data center interconnects. Lightweight and small, GigaPOF fibers bend easily through tight workspaces and terminate without the need of special connectors for a simpler, more cost-effective interface than any other optical solution. In addition, the mode coupling of GigaPOF fibers provide relaxed opto-electronic to fiber interface tolerances.

data center application

Physical advantages
Smaller Size: GigaPOF cables are over 80% smaller than copper alternatives, maximizing airflow and decreasing use of real estate.

Lighter Weight: GigaPOF cables are over 80% lighter than copper cables, ensuring lower stress and more reliable connections and mounting.

Tighter Bends: GigaPOF cables offer bend radii that are 10 times tighter than copper cables, saving space in back panels and easing installation bottlenecks.

Low Power
GigaPOF offers significant energy savings: 10Gbps transport links require less than 10% of the power a similar copper-based system requires.


Optoelectric Tolerance
"Just get the light in the fiber" GigaPOF produces mode coupling which offer much more useful launch/detect apertures than glass.

Connector Free Designs
GigaPOF fibers are extruded to outstanding tolerances, allowing the fiber to be used as an alignment ferrule. The result? Connector free designs.
