    The GPIO cable can be used for several reasons; it can power the camera via a gpio power supply, or be used to trigger the camera via an external hardware trigger (such as a function generator). It can also be used to allow the camera to strobe out whenever an image is captured.  The GPIO cable is not necessary for using the camera, as the usb3/ethernet cable can be used to power the camera, as well as transferring images from camera to PC.
