According to a new report by Dell’Oro Group, an analyst of the telecommunications, networks, and data center industries, more than $95 billion will be spent on campus switches over the next five years — whereas multi-gigabit switches (2.5/5/10 Gbps) are expected to comprise only about 10 percent of port shipments by 2026.
TIA has released the Edge Data Center Addendum to the ANSI/TIA-942-B data center infrastructure standard which defines requirements for newer “edge” or “micro” data centers, which often come in prefabricated enclosures that are significantly smaller than the more traditional sprawling warehouses. The TIA-942-B-1 addendum is a significant step for the globally deployed standard because, as 5G services expand, new applications are emerging and the exponential growth of connected IoT devices are requiring more of the “intelligence” to be closer to the application end user and their devices. The more local processing of data helps applications to meet their latency and performance requirements as well as reduce the volume of raw data uploaded into the cloud.
Senko Advanced Components has acquired CudoForm, a company that designs and manufactures high-precision micro-optic components with applications in data communications, consumer photonics, and biosafety. CudoForm’s CEO says the combined organization will ‘provide novel solutions that meet the demanding requirements of this tight-spaced packaging and difficult-to-integrate photonics ecosystem.

The new IEEE Std 802.3bs-2017 standard for 400G and 200G Ethernet continues the rapid development of Ethernet to accommodate the increasing bandwidth demands of cloud data centers. The current 400G specifications cover only fiber optic media, pushing the limits of optical lane speeds and the number of parallel fibers in a link.
