For cloud-scale data centers, their ability to adapt and survive is tested every year as increasing demands for bandwidth, capacity and lower latency fuel migration to faster network speeds. During the past several years, we’ve seen link speeds throughout the data center increase from 25G/100G to 100G/400G. Every leap to a higher speed is followed by a brief plateau before data center managers need to prepare for the next jump. Currently, data centers are looking to make the jump to 400G. A key consideration is which optical technology is best. Here, we break down some of the considerations and options.
