The emergence of the QSFP form factor has brought economies of scale to 100G upgrades, putting 100G within the cost reach of both small and hyper-scale data center operators. With a small profile and reduced power consumption, the QSFP form factor is the choice of switch manufacturers for 100G platforms. Despite the economies of scale at the switch level, the urgency to upgrade can inevitably lead to unforeseen compatibility and budget issues.
Zayo’s new 100G wavelength route will connect Montreal to Albany, NY. The new fiber route allows customers to more directly connect from Montreal to New York City, Ashburn, New Jersey, Philly and other major cities in the northeast U.S. The new route is expected to be in service by January 2020.
This article explores some practical problems and difficulties in the application of high-speed transceiver in the data center. For example, the 40G / 100G high-speed transceiver has not developed a revolutionary new photoelectric conversion technology, but by upgrading the manufacturing process, the original 10G transceiver technology to expand. In essence, for the 10G transceiver, by increasing the number of transceiver fiber to enhance the bandwidth.
As organizations increase the amount of data processing they do each day, some are starting to require hyperscale data centers. With the use of fiber optics and growing Ethernet standards, admins can make 100G data centers a reality. Leaf-spine topologies, Ethernet and optics research are driving the next generation of data center networking infrastructure. Stay ahead of the curve with these technologies.
If you’re like most people in the data center market, you’re in the planning stages of converting to 100G links, or you’ve already started the installation process. Either way (and whether you like it or not), that means it’s time to start thinking about 400G.But what’s the best path forward to 100 and 400G? What cabling choices should you make today so you can cost effectively migrate in the future? Nexans can help you make those decision with our Own the Link Calculator web tool, recently updated for 400G.
While once cost prohibitive, 100G network upgrades are now a viable option to improve network performance. The emergence of the QSFP form factor has brought economies of scale to 100G upgrades, putting 100G within the cost reach of both small and hyper-scale data center operators. With a small profile and reduced power consumption, the QSFP form factor is the choice of switch manufacturers for 100G platforms.
Oclaro, Inc., a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced its OFC 2017 product line-up of components and modules designed to drive the rapid industry transition to 100G, 200G […]
