Citrix Direct Attached Copper - Network cable - Product Details
A direct attach cable (DAC) assembly is a high performance integrated duplex data link for bi-directional communication. The cable is compliant with the IPF MSA (SFF-8432) for mechanical form factor and SFP+ MSA for direct attach cables. The cable, which can be up to 5 meters long, is data-rate agnostic. Supporting speeds in excess of 10 Gbps, it is a cost-effective alternative to optical links (SFP+ transceivers and fiber optic cables.) The transceiver with DAC is hot-swappable. You can insert and remove the transceiver with the attached cable without shutting down the appliance.
