What is a HiWire Active Electrical Cable (AEC)?

High performance,
affordable cost

Integrating 100G and 400G ToR switches using AEC up to 7m delivers performance at a fraction of the cost of AOCs. Integrated Forward Error Correction (FEC) and in-cable retiming guarantees a fully equalized signal at an ultra-low bit error rate.

Speed shifting made easy

Connect PAM4 ports to NRZ gear directly with HiWire AECs. Mode shifting, speed shifting and a full range of breakout configurations makes connecting 100G or 400G  ToRs simple.

The future is fast

Designed on a robust technology, HiWire AEC products support today’s faster 100G and 400G port speeds and have a clear roadmap for scalability to 800G and beyond.
