Transceivers capable of supporting 400 Gigabit Ethernet for the data center environment are being deployed. Meanwhile, coherent transmission in the form of 400ZR/ZR+ will soon reach the field, with 600-Gbps and 800-Gbps capabilities following suit and the IEEE embarking on new standards efforts. This webcast will review the state of 400G+ technology for both data center and service provider applications and the requirements such technology should meet.
Perimeter Security with IP Camera Surveillance Takes Advantage of Optical LAN’s Superior Reach, Bandwidth, Security and Costs
Optical LAN technology proves advantageous for building/operating perimeter security when dealing with large areas and extended distances.
According to Frost & Sullivan’s Future of Connected Living report, the device-to-person ratio will exceed 20 to 1 by 2030, as the world enters the era of hyperconnectivity and catapults organizations’ digital transformation. The number of connected devices globally is projected to increase from 30.4 billion in 2020 to 200 billion in 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.7%. The research forecasts the convergence of connected cities, homes, and workplaces will result in ubiquitous connectivity and the emergence of new product applications, business models, technologies, platforms, and services.
The Broadband Forum’s TR-419: Fiber Access Extension over Existing Copper Infrastructure report shows how fiber-based access can be provided to customers by utilizing existing copper infrastructure as opposed to the installation of fiber to end-users’ premises, which may not be economically or physically viable. FTTep (Fiber to the extension point) lets service providers deploy fiber-grade services by leveraging the last meters of copper to extend the fiber network without lowering quality when compared to complete FTTH (Fiber to the home) networks.
Leviton’s new LC Unibody fiber connector will enable data center operators and enterprise network managers to better perform in higher density, extended reach environments, with an increasing number of physical connections.
The organizers of OFC 2021 (June 6-11) announced yesterday that the conference will be fully virtual. The technical conference content will be available live and on demand. Trending new topics include the potential impact of quantum communications and machine learning on network operations and how optics may support machine learning and neuromorphic computing.
Innovation and technology has never been more important to the Commercial Real Estate Industry as it recovers from the impact of Covid. This webinar will explore technologies such as: 4G and 5G, IoT, Fiber Optics, CBRS, and other innovations enabling safer and smarter buildings.
Demand for greater capacity for scaling and optimized connectivity for privacy and speed is driving the need for dark fiber.
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) carries great potential to help network operators stay ahead of growing demands for bandwidth. As we continue to split the light into more and more wavelengths, the potential capacity of just a single fiber strand grows dramatically.
High-frequency silicon chips with an ultra-thin polymer cable can build a data transfer system ten times faster than a USB. The new system design is more compact and cost-efficient than traditional copper wire and draws far less power. The new transfer link could dramatically cut energy use at power-hungry data centers. With speeds of 105 gigabits per second, it also could address the bandwidth challenges as we see this megatrend toward more and more data continues.
