later this year, we believe OFC 2019 is the perfect venue to highlight
our new technologies.”
GaugeChangerTM is an innovative and disruptive technology
that allows copper to extend much longer lengths without the cost and
power penalty of optics. It works equally well at 25 Gbps NRZ and 50
Gbps PAM-4 enabling new connector standards of 100, 200 and 400 Gbps.
The Ethernet Alliance interoperability demonstrations showcasing
Spectra7’s GaugeChangerTM technology will be in Booth #4749
Spectra7 will also be showcasing its GaugeChangerTM
technology at Booth #5408
