For many years HUBER+SUHNER has brought together key technologies for the more and more required practical optical implementation on circuit boards. Up to date there is no industry standard available. Therefore HUBER+SUHNER has decided to join COBO, a consortium for on-board optics. This offers the company to bring in more than 15 years of experience in development of board connectivity technology and to actively cooperate with leading market players like Broadcom, Cisco, Juniper, Microsoft Arista and Mellanox to develop standards as well as innovative and future-proof solutions for the future of big data.
