All items are manufactured using the highest quality components and covered by a Lifetime Warranty.

QSFP28 AOC Benefits

Flexibility & Options

Plug & Play Simplicity

  • Custom lengths up to 100M
  • Dual coding for different systems on each end
  • Breakout capabilities for 100G core to 4x 25G edge
  • Coded in house to ensure compatibility
  • Hot pluggable for easy installation
  • No maintenance or cleaning needed

Cost Advantage

Factory Terminated

  • Less expensive than using separate transceivers & fiber cables
  • Lower power consumption and heat dissipation
  • ISO 9001 certified manufacturing
  • 18 point quality control and testing


Fiber cables have not hit their bandwidth cap yet and are only limited by the hardware


Fiber cables shine over copper achieving distances up to 100M in MMF


Requires minimal maintenance and is highly durable making it less likely to be damaged during operations

Cable Size

Small size and lightweight regardless of speed or distance


Initial upgrades can be higher than copper but maintenance over time makes fiber more cost effective

Customizable Options for Unique Networks

Standard and Non-Standard Lengths: Not all networks are built the same. While most OEMs offer lengths in standardized intervals, these do not always meet the requirements for a neat and clean data center environment. GigaTech stocks all common lengths as well as a number of unique lengths. These can also be built in customized lengths to the inch for the most discerning requirement.

Dual-Coding Options: Connecting two different manufacturer’s systems together can be complicated. Cisco coded AOC will not work properly when connected to an Arista switch. Juniper coded AOC will not be recognized in an HP server. GigaTech can code each AOC connection to allow for mixed OEM environments.

Compatibility and Inhouse Coding

GigaTech Products AOC cables are manufactured and coded to perform identically to the switch manufacturer original optic. We code each item to be compatible with the intended system and latest software release to ensure reliability. Through our ability to code all of our optics in house, GigaTech can create custom coded AOC solutions that OEM manufacturers do not supply.

Compatible Manufacturers

GigaTech Products has been a leading manufacturer of compatible transceivers and cables for over a decade, bringing customers affordable alternatives to Cisco, Juniper, Brocade, Dell, and HP original items. With the ability to custom code transceivers and direct attach network cables, GigaTech can provide compatible alternatives for most lesser-known brands, while ensuring 100% compatibility

Never Sourced. Never Recycled.

All components in GigaTech Product optics are manufactured under the same roof and represent the gold standard for reliability and consistency in performance. This vertical manufacture chain allows GigaTech to avoid unnecessary variances in transceiver casing or laser quality often found with online resellers who source their components from an ever changing vendor list. The transceiver is guaranteed to be built from A-Stock never used components overseen by GigaTech Products,

Rigorous Testing & Standards Compliance

The quality and standards of our hardware is one the base foundations of GigaTech Products. All of our components comply with MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) output standards and, in many cases, excel beyond those certification standards. Every transceiver we produce is tested on active network devices to ensure they comply with OEM equipment and are verified to be plug-and-play and do not require work arounds.
