Research details developments in the active optical cable (AOCs) market-global industry forecast from 2014 to 2024

Industrial Market Research

An active optical cable, abbreviated as AOC, is a wiring technology which uses optical fiber between connectors for improving cable’s performance.


 AOC uses electrical-to-optical conversion at the end of cables to improve its speed and distance performance without compromising on its compatibility with the standard electrical interfaces.

The ability of AOC to substitute or used as an alternative to copper cables has led to the rise in demand for AOCs. The growth is further attributed by various benefits offered by AOCs such as low power consumption and small bend radius that results in easy installation and lighter weight.
