This webinar will address the unique considerations of edge deployments in nontraditional locations and how to make the most of limited floor space including: How increased demand for power is driving the need to support larger, heavier equipment with new rack designs—and the benefits of intelligent power management down to the rack level and innovative cable management and pathway strategies that can support mission-critical data carried through fiber-optic cable.
The biggest challenge in selecting the right fiber type is to carry out a comprehensive analysis of current and future requirements. . For most data center operators, aspects such as high bandwidth, low or adjusted latencies and various aspects of power management play a decisive role in their decision. Of course, the costs for optical transceivers as well as system and installation costs must also be kept in mind. As data transfer speeds and technologies continue to evolve, structured cabling should always support network infrastructures with data rates beyond the current data rates.
Trailblazing network operators including service providers and hyperscale data centers are pushing transmission speeds up to 400 Gbits/sec. While these few users are facing the headwinds that challenge early adopters, they also are paving a path for future network owner/operators, who will benefit from the standards and technical developments that will enable widespread deployment of greater-than-100G speeds. This webcast seminar examines the roadmap to speeds beyond 100G, discussing the options that currently exist and that are emerging for future adopters. The seminar provides an opportunity for users that are pushing 100G speeds today to learn and plan for their next generations of network upgrades.
Panduit received three Cabling Innovation Awards from Cabling Installation & Maintenance. Receiving the platinum award is Panduit’s PoE Extenders that extend Power over Ethernet (and data) beyond the 100-meter channel. Receiving Gold Awards were Lucas Oil Stadium, which uses OmniStream™, Atlona’s AV over IP solution and the Codisa Data Center.
Today’s data center cabling infrastructure must be designed to offer a competitive advantage and a lower cost of ownership immediately. As a result, the evolution path to higher speeds such as 40G and 100G data rates, as well as next-generation applications such as cloud computing and virtualization, must be ensured early in the data center cabling infrastructure design and planning process.

The Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin completed a 5,000 square foot data center project. The installation included From the data center’s core cabinets out of the MDF, there are 96 strands of SM fiber and 24 strands of 50um OM4 MM fiber. There is also 200 pair of copper connections back to the MDF. From the MDF, an equal amount of fiber connects out to the owner’s network. There are 3,504 strands of 50um OM4 fiber, for over 7,000 terminations. This fiber connects 46 individual server cabinets, as well as fiber distribution cabinets. All of this fiber is the Systimax instaPATCH pre-terminated cabling solution, connected to high density LC cassettes. There is also 144 Cat 6 copper cables that interconnect each POD back to the core.
USConec and Rosenberger are collaborating in the deployment of USConec’s MDC 3X density solution for hyperscale data centers and other applications. Offering 3X the density of duplex LC connectors, the MDC duplex connector offers simple insertion/extraction using a built-in push/pull boot, and field-polarity configurability. This ensures the MDC platform meets today’s challenges of high-density fiber management in data center environments.
At the Fall BICSI Conference, Rosenberger will introduce its Lyra Intelligent Micro Data Center platform ‘in a box’ for IoT edge and 5G MEC applications, as well as its FTH-9 Plus Wave ODF cabinet for Seismic Zone 4 “Ring of Fire”-sensitive data center installations. The LYRA IMDC provides power, cooling, UPS, cable management and cloud remote-monitoring. It can be installed in less than 3 hours with 40% space-savings versus traditional data center installations. Applications include small data centers, office areas and edge deployments.
The structured cabling market recorded a CAGR of over 6% during the period, 2013 to 2017. The structured cabling industry has been underpinned by the continual expansion in the data centers, the increasing mobile internet subscriptions, and the constantly changing business infrastructure. Value of the structured cabling market was estimated at nearly US$ 16 billion in 2018, and is forecast to record a CAGR of approximately 8% through 2028.
Parallel optics technology has become the transmission option of choice in many data centres as it is able to support 10G, 40G, and 100G transmission. For parallel optics to work effectively, it requires the right choice of cable and connector. It is no doubt that fiber optic cable is the main choice for data center cabling as it can provide numerous advantages over twisted-pair copper in a data center environment that allow network designers to benefit from new data center architectures.
