Spectra7 Demonstrates Active Copper Cables with Cisco, Arista, Juniper, Intel and Other Leading Suppliers

11:30 am ET March 5, 2019 (BusinessWire)

Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. (TSX:SEV) ("Spectra7" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high-performance analog semiconductor products for broadband connectivity markets, announced that it is participating in the Ethernet Alliance OFC 2019 Demo featuring 21 member companies including leading switch and silicon makers Cisco, Arista, Juniper and Intel. Spectra7 technology is well represented in the demo and includes speeds of 25G, 100G and 400G and form factors including SFP, QSFP, QSFP-DD and OSFP. In all, there are 8 interconnects that include Spectra7 chips. The groundbreaking demo, available for viewing from March 5 - 7, 2019 in booth 4749 on the OFC 2019 expo floor, highlights the growing diversity and maturity of Active Copper Cables (ACCs) for the current and next generation of Ethernet.

"We are thrilled to be so well represented in this leading-edge demo of ethernet technology," said Spectra7's CEO Raouf Halim. "With the buildout of 25G and 100G happening now and the start of 400G expected later this year, we believe OFC 2019 is the perfect venue to highlight our new technologies."

GaugeChanger(TM) 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 GaugeChanger(TM) technology will be in Booth #4749

Spectra7 will also be showcasing its GaugeChanger(TM) technology at Booth #5408
