Global Active Optical Cable Market is classified on the basis ofprotocol, form factor, applications, end users, distribution channeland geography. A cabling technology that receives same electrical inputs as that of a traditional copper cable, but the connectors use optical fibre in between them is known as an active optical cable. It comprises control chip, fiber optic transceivers, multimode optical fiber, and modules. It utilizes electrical-to-optical mode of conversion. There is a significant growth rate of the global active optical cable market owing to its speed and distance performance.
Some of the advantages of active optical cable include its higher bandwidth, lighter weight, low power consumption, reliable transport, low bit error rate, etc. The factors that propel the growth of the global market include increasing demand especially in data centres, rapid urbanization & industrialization, growing investment by government to enhance connectivity and rising demand for higher bandwidth networks. On the other hand, there are also factors that may hamper the growth of the market such as high initial investment.Active Optical Cable Market is classified on the basis ofprotocol as Ethernet, DisplayPort, HDMI,PCI Express (PCIe), InfiniBand, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), Thunderbolt, USB, and others. Active Optical Cable Market is classified on the basis ofform factor as CXP, CX4, CFP,CDFP, QSFP, SFP, and others.
