Quellan, a provider of analog signal integrity devices, has announced its ability to transform data center cable interconnects from passive, non-active devices to intelligent "roadways" for use in today's mega data centers.
In collaboration with W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore), a leading cable supplier, Quellan will insert ultra-small, low power analog semiconductors inside interconnects used by GORE EYE-OPENER Cable to achieve improvements in reach, power consumption, latency, and airflow. This series of improvements yields lower operating expenses and capital expenditures for expanding data centers.
Quellan announced its Active Cable Q:ACTIVE Semiconductor Technology on Monday at the High Performance on Wall Street Conference using GORE EYE-OPENER Cable to install a new found intelligence between mega data center clusters.
"Our Data Center partners have expressed the need for increased airflow, lower power, low latency and greater cluster reach in their mega data centers," said Tony Stelliga, Chairman and CEO of Quellan, Inc. "We are delighted to deliver a solution with the industry's leading high performance cable vendor, Gore."
