The demands being placed on our data centers are larger than ever. This is true for all types and sizes of data centers, from the largest Hyperscale, to Private, and even Edge. This webinar will address advancements in Single and Multimode fiber and how they are being used in data centers. This presentation will look at the latest applications and the requirements for fiber to support them. After that, we will look at testing these fibers, calculating a loss budget for current and future applications, and how you can increase confidence in the test results. At the end of this presentation, you will understand how improvements in fiber construction allow communications at multiple wavelengths are helping to reach speeds in excess of 400G as well as what testing will assure that the fiber has been properly installed.
The six installment in Bob Hult’s Technology Trends series examines the rise of data centers and the shift to cloud and edge computing.
This article address multimode technology trends behind multimode fiber. It explains how cloud and enterprise data centers continue to drive strong demand for multimode solutions, even as transmission speeds increase and SMF transceivers move into the 500-m data space.
Are expanded beam connector systems an alternative to the MTP®/MPO connector? Check out Rosenberger’s White Paper to learn about the requirements placed on multifiber connectors and what is needed to ensure uninterrupted, high data transmission rates.
This webinar gives data center managers some key cabling strategies to manage multiple waves of 5G — helping ensure next-generation coverage for billions of devices. Topics include the three phases of 5G deployment, data processing at the edge to reduce latency, and centralized data centers to support the workloads generated by 5G.
By far the most arduous challenge regarding optical fiber connectivity in the data center is managing the immense amount of fiber, whether it is in the demarcation point of the entrance room or within the facility itself. What used to be a few dozen or hundreds of fibers is now a few thousand. The trend we’re now witnessing is the revamping of the entrance room to eliminate outdated proprietary splice closures, affectionately known as “fridges,” so-called because of their physical resemblance, and replacing them with modern, more efficient and user-friendly high-density fiber management systems.
When it comes to high speed communication links within data centers or other business networks, demand for 10G Ethernet (10GbE) continues to grow. With plenty of options in existence, including 10G SFP+ direct attach copper cables (DAC), individual SFP+ optical transceivers and 10G copper modules, how is a network operator to choose? In this blog, we give you the top three reasons why 10G copper transceivers could provide the performance upgrade you need in a cost-effective manner.
On August 11 and 12 Cabling Installation & Maintenance will host a series of 8 online seminars addressing emerging applications as well as cabling and wireless infrastructure strategies for networks. The online conference, Emerging Applications in Data Center and Enterprise Networks, will include 4 seminars each day. The seminars on Tuesday, August 11 will focus on data center networks and those on Wednesday, August 12 will focus on enterprise networks.
Watch this webinar from Senko’s Tiger Ninomiya on demand and learn about the evolution of fiber optic connectors in data centers.
As power densities of racks rapidly increase due to limited space, cooling efficiency is top of mind for companies in the industry. Cooling systems are very energy intensive, using as much (or more) energy as the computers they are created for, and they are expected to run continuously with the same effectiveness. Cooling strategies can be optimized by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation, which enables engineers to virtually test different data center designs, gain insights into airflow patterns, and discover “hot spots.”
