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 The trend we’re now witnessing is the revamping of the entrance room to eliminate outdated proprietary splice closures, affectionately known as “fridges,” so-called because of their physical resemblance, and replacing them with modern, more efficient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.”
The Food and Drug Administration is considering new approaches for delivering IT infrastructure, and the Department of Homeland Security is inching closer to making good on a long promised data center consolidation plan.
Webinar: Increasing fiber optic port density is a crucial requirement for hyperscale data centers because space is at a premium – yet new traffic creates demands for more fiber ports at a blistering pace. Data center operators often cannot expand floor space in their data centers, so the only answer is to increase port density in the rack.
FS.com and US Conec are collaborating to supply MTP brand cable assembly products for high-density data center applications. Each FS MTP cable uses US Conec’s MTP connectors to ensure stable and highly effective interconnections of MTP cabling infrastructure in data center environments.
Kyoto Semiconductor has developed a high-speed photodiode KP-H KPDEH12L-CC1C to support 400Gbps transmission systems that use PAM4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation 4) inside and between data centers. With the introduction of this InGaAs photodiode, the company is continually supporting the increasing speeds and capacity requirements for transmission systems in 5G networks and beyond. Mass production will start in November, 2020.
