New Low-Loss DAC Cables Enables Reduced FEC and Low Switch Latency for Server Links

Offering improved shielding, it significantly reduces the 25G signal losses in the cable. This delivers several key benefits: Swapping the Forward Error Correction (FEC) RS-FEC algorithm in the switch to a low-latency FireCode (BASE-R) FEC saving approximately 30% latency or manually turning off FEC entirely saving upward of 100- 120ns latency in each direction. Use […]
