As internet traffic, connected devices, and cloud-based services proliferate, there is a corresponding increase in the deployment of optical fiber. This article highlights the key market segments and technology enablers driving demand and then discusses the ways that optical fiber technology is being deployed to meet the demands for higher bandwidth, low latency networks.
This white paper from CommScope covers how to create an integrated suite of connectivity solutions; without adding layers of complexity; understand where and how key technologies such as PoE, IoT, Wireless, etc. fit.; how to flatten complexity with shared infrastructure; how to wire for the future, not just the present; the ins and outs of adding wireless connectivity.
The introduction of 400 Gbits/sec and now 800 Gbits/sec has created greater efficiencies to provide low-latency network access with significantly increased bandwidth, critical for hyperscale and cloud-scale organizations. The resulting new transceiver and connector options along with fiber constructions help to deliver data where you need it, when you need it, cost-effectively. These changes have architectural and on-site implications that involve network, cable infrastructure, installation and testing. This panel presentation and discussion will address these technology trends from different perspectives across the data center ecosystem.

For cloud-scale data centers, their ability to adapt and survive is tested every year as increasing demands for bandwidth, capacity and lower latency fuel migration to faster network speeds. During the past several years, we’ve seen link speeds throughout the data center increase from 25G/100G to 100G/400G. Every leap to a higher speed is followed by a brief plateau before data center managers need to prepare for the next jump.
Currently, data centers are looking to make the jump to 400G. A key consideration is which optical technology is best. Here, we break down some of the considerations and options.
PoE standardization and its implications on cabling and efficient power delivery is creating a timely opportunity to power the growing number of IoT devices being added to the cabling infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively. In CommScope’s white paper you’ll learn why PoE adoption is increasing, the applications driving it, how the key technical standards work with it, what the key considerations for cabling selection are and how to create solutions that are more efficient.
Technology can help restore confidence in returning to large venues by monitoring visitor temperatures and movements. Solutions to COVID-19 monitoring and compliance require an ecosystem of technology manufacturers, working together to develop solutions for venues of all types. There are four key technologies that provide solutions: Network Connectivity, Location & Analytic Systems, Sensors and Software applications.
CommScope’s Jim Young explains how data centers are responding to the challenges of densification and campus architecture as we move toward 400G.
Adapting to new advancements in fiber optics – like rollable ribbon – does not have to be complicated. In this blog, Mike Cooper explains how deploying rollable ribbon can be an effective method of saving space. In data centers where fiber optic cables are starting to fill pathways, deploying rollable ribbon can be an effective method of saving space. It is also flexible, like a distribution cable, making it more durable and less susceptible to breaks. Moreover, rollable ribbon splices just like matrix – 12 fibers at a time.
