The data center evolution: How to overcome its cabling challenges

Data center managers are challenged by larger networks, higher speeds, and greater power consumption. To meet increasing data rates you can increase baud rate (how fast the laser is turned on and off), but at higher data rates, signal-to-noise ratio starts to become an issue. Another option is to increase the number of fibers used, or to increase the number of wavelengths used on each fiber.
