Advances in optical interface technology boost performance levels to help meet increasing data rates and signal bandwidths. New specifications define how to deploy these optical links within open industry standards, affording improved interoperability and supporting future upgrades. Offering many advantages over traditional copper connections, optical links will boost data rates, improve signal integrity and security, and greatly extend distance between system components.

Q&A with Pentek

Q: How do I get help when I have a technical problem with a Pentek product?

A: Pentek offers FREE support to all our customers. The best way to contact support is to email support@pentek.com with some background information about your application and a description of the problem.

Q: I just received an email from YourPentek informing me that the software we are using has been upgraded. Do I need to upgrade? How do I get an upgrade?

A: There are many reasons we choose to upgrade the software. It could be to add functionality for a new board, to add support for an upgraded operating system, or to fix a bug in the software.

Typically, if you have a working application, it is probably not necessary to upgrade the software unless you need to accommodate a change in your system. If you are unsure, please contact our support staff at support@pentek.com and ask them to guide you.
