Protokraft designs and manufactures electronic and electro-optic components and subsystems for use in harsh environment networking equipment applications. The company provides electronic components and subsystems for short and intermediate reach (1 meter to 20 kilometer) harsh environment communication networks, including optical network switches, optical enterprise and storage area networks (SAN' s) and tactical optical access networks.
Network equipment designers receive the benefits of reduced printed circuit board space, reduced cabling requirements and most importantly - enhanced system link budgets.
Protokraft's patented core technology enables robust electronic and optoelectronic components to be packaged directly into cylindrical or rectangular connector shells. These electronic components are optimized for Fast Ethernet, Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, Serial FPDP and 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking applications.
Protokraft electronic and optoelectronic components offer numerous cost, performance and reliability advantages to harsh environment network equipment system designers: Eliminate or reduce the complexity of intra-enclosure cable assemblies and disconnects; Improve high speed signal integrity and EMI performance inside the system chassis; Reduce weight, space, energy consumption and improve system reliability; Reclaim system link budgets from interconnection losses.
