Every inch is also precious within a data center. IT space is in short supply. Therefore, every data center operator strives to accommodate as much performance as possible in as little space as possible. Every additional height unit (HU) that a top-of-rack switch, for example, takes up is missing from the servers below it, thus reducing the maximum computing power of a rack. High density concepts that make better use of the available space are profitable here.
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.
Rosenberger OSI will offer the Miniature Duplex Connector (MDC) as part of the company’s PreCONNECT fiber cabling systems which will increase the density of its fiber cable offerings. The MDC push-pull duplex connector is based on 1.25-mm all-ceramic ferrule technology. It is a Very Small Form Factor (VSFF) fiber connector that can be used as a media dependent interface (MDI) or optical interface for SFP-DD and QSFP-DD optical transceivers.
Rosenberger has achieved excellent return loss values with APC 8° angled polish of multimode MTP®/MPO connectors. The APC 8° angled polish is used from the outset for singlemode MTP®/MPO ferrule endfaces to achieve reliable return loss. In contrast to this, only the PC 0° straight polish was previously used for multimode MTP®/MPO ferrule endfaces. Due to their PC 0° straight polish design, multimode MTP®/MPO connectors were previously particularly susceptible to performance problems caused by dirt particles, which in the past often led to unreliable return loss values.
Most ICT industry workers hear and use buzzwords such as 5G, IoT, IIoT, Edge, Cloud, Smart, Latency, Industry 4.0 and others. The problem occurs when the definition of one buzzword is driven by undefined definitions of others. This is the case when trying to define an Edge Data Center (EDC) — a definition that still eludes the industry.
The introduction of ever higher speeds makes it clear that the use of parallelization technologies is becoming increasingly important. This is due to the fact that the serial “lane speed” in multimode receivers is currently max. 50 Gigabit/s, but at the same time 100, 200 or 400 Gigabit/s are required.
The unique design of this cable rack from Rosenberger means there are no disturbing rack columns when laying cables, because the four vertical cable managers are also the supporting columns.
Rosenberger OSI and FiberCon are working together to develop an MTP®/MPO version of FiberCon’s CrossCon® system to further optimize data center operations.
Rosenberger OSI completed a fiber installation for German utility TenneT, upgrading TenneT’s control room with workstations and training workplaces linked via OM4 multimode fiber. The control room upgrade effort, dubbed “KVM Matrix,” enhances TenneT’s ability to use these control centers to monitor the operating status of its networks and their interaction with its data center.
OSR’s EVOLVER centralized computing system, combined with Rosenberger´s high-performance connectors, cables and harnesses, now optimally addresses the requirement for processing rapidly growing volumes of data from vehicle systems.
