Webinar: Fiber-Optic Infrastructure in the Data Center

To meet exploding network bandwidth demand, 50 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s signaling lanes in server (and fiber to machine) and switch links, have emerged requiring higher speed standards. Ethernet and Fibre Channel have both either recently published (for 50 Gb/s per lane) or are developing (for 100 Gb/s per lane) new low cost, short reach standards that will utilize these lane rates, for both serial and parallel solutions. This presentation will provide an update on those standards efforts, along with the underlying market, industry, and technology trends.

Webinar: Data Center Infrastructure – The Update & New Considerations

New applications, the enormous demands placed on the internet in the age of COVID 19, and moving from the enterprise space to the hyper-local edge installation all demand a rethinking of what the data center should look like. While the core components remain the same, this webinar will address how we must rethink how we specify and install enclosures, power, climate control and related accessories.

Webinar: 400G/800G Data Center Network Demands

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.

Keeping up with the evolving data center: part 1 – emerging technologies and related challenges – DCD

Traffic between data centers (DCI traffic) is growing faster than the other categories of traffic. This rapid growth is fueled by the increase in content distribution networks, the proliferation of cloud services and the need to move data between clouds and to the edge. There’s an ever-growing volume of data that must be replicated across different data centers which puts pressure on DCI networks to be flexible, resilient and adapt quickly to changing bandwidth demands.

Structured cabling in the data center can help enterprise business thrive coming out of the pandemic

Hyperscale and large cloud data centers tend to be early adopters that shape the industry, with their practices ultimately becoming the standard for data center design and deployment. Current connectivity trends within these spaces are supporting the need to quickly and cost-effectively ramp up capacity in response to emerging technologies and the demand for high-speed, low-latency performance in the evolving digital economy and COVID-19 world.

What and where to use 25G SFP28 Optical Transceivers and Cables?

SFP28 stands for Small Form-Factor Pluggable 28. It is the third generation of the SFP interconnect systems designed for 25G performance per the IEEE 802.3by specification (25GBASE-CR). It has the same common form factor as the SFP+, and supports 25Gbps electrical interfaces per channel, making it a cost-effective way to connect within racks and across adjascent racks. It has the characteristics of low power consumption, small volume and high speed, which is beneficial to increase capacity of data center, improve port density and reduce power consumption.
