The GBIC standard is non-proprietary and is defined by the Small Form Factor committee in document number 8053i.
The first publication of the proposal was in November 1995.
They are commonly used with Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channel applications.

”When selling complex and high-end networking configurations from blue chip manufacturers, it is a key element to our competitiveness that we can equip the switches with PeakOptical transceivers.
Also it gives our customers across the world the advantage of significant cost reductions without compromising the quality. Ultimately it brings a much better ROI, which makes sense in today’s market."Ralf B. Erlandsen
