As transmission speeds necessary to handle the growing daily network traffic of the data center increase, the migration from existing systems to 40G/100G requires a new optical fiber paradigm. For the first time, parallel optics is required to deliver the necessary speeds in the network. To use existing installed infrastructure efficiently and maintain the necessary fiber alignment, optical fiber cables constructed of fiber ribbons and associated connectivity provide a most efficient and cost effective solution to meet the needs of this network protocol.
Building a custom data center does not have to be a start-from-scratch project. Discover how this tested optical fiber ribbon paradigm can quickly, easily, and cost effectively customize your existing infrastructure — allowing you to install an infrastructure that simultaneously supports 10G today and 40G-100G and beyond tomorrow.
