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.
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
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.
The data center interconnect space continues to be among the most vibrant within the optical communications landscape. This webcast will provide an overview of the current state of the data center interconnect application and cover emerging technologies that could address different application segments.
Cisco will join such competitors as Ciena, Juniper Networks, and Infinera by branching out into the optical transceiver business by acquiring Acacia Communications for $70.00 per share in cash, or approximately $2.6 billion on a fully diluted basis, net of cash and marketable securities. The deal is expected to close in the second half of Cisco’s fiscal 2020.
Data centers are affected by many things. Climate can influence the choice of location, but there are usually many additional factors such as the state of the local economy, proximity to consumers, […]
Ideally, enterprises would like to upgrade their data centers to 40G/100G Ethernet without changing their existing duplex multimode fiber infrastructure being used for 10G Ethernet. Also, many would like to maintain the […]
Understanding fiber polarity and how to connect a system with absolute certainty is key to a successful installation. The tricky part, however, is that there is no “right” way to approach fiber […]
Molex will showcase end-to-end MPN Structured Cabling solutions at the 2018 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition. Digitization, analytics and edge computing deliver unprecedented value, yet require solutions that are agile and cost-effective. […]
While you might hear your CFO grumbling about staying under budget from a dollar perspective, staying under your loss budget from a fiber perspective has a much bigger impact on your network […]
