Webinar: Connectivity for the Edge Computing Era

Edge computing is a new evolution of the processing and storage distribution trend that brings high-bandwidth and low latency access to applications closer to users and devices than ever before. As edge computing redefines the future of data centers, it must also redefine the future of network connectivity. This webinar will address which use cases will drive edge computing in the near-term, identify the primary connectivity requirements, including data rates and latency, identify the role for software automation, predict to what extent edge computing will drive 400 Gbit/s, and more.

Taking centre stage

The data centre has created demand for an infrastructure that provides greater bandwidth and higher data rates, but how has this impacted the market for optical components? Many big cloud operators have chosen to use single mode as the dominant fibre type in the data centre, so that’s creating a lot of pressure on the transceiver manufacturers

Mixed Mindfulness

When it comes to a cabling infrastructure, not all media and applications are always the same. So for each and every link, it’s important to be aware of what you’re testing—from both a media type and application standpoint. Often customers will determine that they only need Category 5e or Category 6 for some applications and Category 6A for others, or they may realize the need to upgrade some but not all links.
