White Paper: Reducing Channel Insertion Loss in Next-Gen Single-mode Optical Fiber Power Budgets

Our evolving needs to process more data, save energy and reduce costs are becoming more important every day. As a result, Data Centers around the world are constantly changing. To address these demanding needs, Legrand has developed the Infinium Quantum™ ultra-low loss single mode solution, which is a pre-terminated passive fiber optic end-to-end link. This solution is comprised of a system of patch cords, cassettes and MTP trunk cables, designed for exceptionally low channel insertion loss – yielding an enormous increase in optical headroom. 

With such a vast increase in optical headroom, the rapidly evolving data center of today is provided more flexibility to add devices and length, improved BER, and true future proofing reaching far beyond 400Gbps. Further benefits are realized when the Infinium Quantum Fiber Solution is coupled with reduced power transceivers . This White Paper details how you can reduce channel insertion loss in next-gen single-mode Optical Fiber power budgets with the Infinium Quantum™ System.

WebinarAll You Need to Know About Multimode Fiber and Connectivity

Connections have become increasingly important over the past few months as the world has turned to virtual communication to stay connected with schoolmates, colleagues, family, and friends. In connected world, data creation, storage, and access drive the need for increased network speeds.

This webinar will review the need for increased enterprise data center capacity speeds – from selecting the correct optical fiber and connectivity solutions to installation. It will emphasize the benefits of multimode fiber and connectivity, discussing optical fiber and Corning® CleanAdvantage™ Technology basics. We will also discuss what the future looks like for multimode fiber and links as the network continues to grow.

From the cloud to an intelligent era: Data centres are transforming

Over the past decade, data center services have shifted from predominantly web-centric to cloud-centric. Today, they are shifting once again, this time from the era of cloud computing to the intelligent era. There is a need to filter out and automatically reorganize the information before mining it for useful information. This is where artificial intelligence (AI) comes in. Some 97% of large enterprises around the world intend to use AI by 2025, according to Huawei’s Global Industry Vision (GIV).

Furukawa first with high-density fiber optic cable into 1.25 inch conduit

Furukawa Electric Co has conducted an experiment in its Mie, Japan facility to demonstrate the installation of a 6912-fiber optical cable with an outer diameter of 1.14 inches (29 mm) in a 696 foot (200m) long conduit with three 90 degree curves and an inner diameter of 32mm. The conduit used was a standard product installed in conventional data center campuses. Engineers confirmed a maximum pulling tension of 84 pounds (372N), well below the maximum pulling tension of 600 pounds (2700N) specified for the cable.

Researchers set a new world-record Internet speed

Researchers at University College London claim they’ve obtained a new top internet speed of 178Tbps – a fifth quicker than the prior record and fast enough to download the entire Netflix catalog in under a second. To achieve that, the researchers used different bandwidth ranges than are typically used in commercial optical systems. Traditional fiber infrastructure uses bandwidth of 4.5THz with 9THz becoming more available commercially. In UCL experiments, the scientists used 16.8THz.

Data Center Liquid Cooling Market to Exceed $3 Billion by 2026

As servers become more sophisticated and generate more heat, the data center liquid cooling industry is set to surpass $3 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights. The matter of overheating becomes a major point of concern when it results it power outages and unplanned downtime. This has made efficient, reliable cooling, power, support systems extremely crucial.
