Digital systems are notorious for bottlenecks. It’s no good having a blazing, overclocked PC and an internet connection like a firehose if the USB cable between them is like a straw. It’s even worse when the distance between PC and modem is more than a few feet away, so the cable can’t reach. With the aim of eliminating these bottlenecks, Corning Cable Systems LLC is unveiling its Optical Cable by Corning at CES in Las Vegas. These cables replace copper wires with fiber optics to produce cables up to 100 meters (328 ft) long, that are much more durable and achieve speeds of 10 gigabits per second, which is enough to load a full-length HD video in 30 seconds.

 

The USB 3.0 Optical and Thunderbolt Optical Cables by Corning look like standard USB cables with a couple of fat plugs. The plugs are actually optical engines that convert the digital signal into laser light. This passes down the cable where it is converted back into an electronic signal at the other end.

 

What makes this possible is that instead of copper wires, the cables use glass optical fibers. This allows them to be 50 percent thinner with a diameter of 3 mm (0.12 in) and 80 percent lighter than standard cables, yet, according to Corning, they are stronger and can be bent, squeezed and tangled without damage or losing function. The cables have a low signal-noise design, are dual channel and bi-directional, and up to six Thunderbolt cables can be daisy chained. They are also hot swappable.
