How will SWDM and OM5 affecting your data center upgrade?

Currently, most of the data center are using OM3 and OM4 Multimode fiber to deploying 10G Ethernet. When we are updating from 40G and 100G, mostly we are using cost-effective QSFP-SR4 and QSFP28-SR4 Multimode transceivers with a multi-fiber interface. In the cabling infrastructure of the data center, abundant of duplex fiber and multi-fiber patch cord, […]

Do you know the typical component types needed for optical cabling infrastructure in data center

As networking equipment becomes denser and port counts in the data center increase to hundreds and thousands of ports, managing cables connected to these devices become a difficult challenge. Traditionally, connecting cables directly to individual ports on low port-count equipment was considered manageable. Applying the same principles to high port-count equipment made the task more […]

Five Tips for Choosing QSFP28 Fiber Optic Transceivers

The QSFP28 standard is designed to carry 100 Gigabit Ethernet, EDR InfiniBand. or 32G Fibre Channel. This transceiver type is also used with direct-attach breakout cables to adapt a single 100GbE port to four independent 25 gigabit ethernet ports (QSFP28-to-4x-SFP28). Sometimes this transceiver type is also referred to as “QSFP100” or “100G QSFP” for sake […]

Data Center Cabling System Considerations

The TIA TR-42.1.1 group was tasked with the development of the “Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Internet Data Centers.” “The scope of the working group included topology and performance for copper and fiber cabling, and other aspects of the IT infrastructure that will enable these facilities to rapidly deploy new technologies. Although the standard was published prior […]

Optical cabling for 40G and 100G Data Center Network

Recommended cabling infrastructure deployments in the data center are based on guidance found in TIA-942 Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers. Using a distributed star topology in a structured cabling implementation provides the most flexible and manageable infrastructure. Many data center deployments today use the reduced topology described in TIA-942 where the horizontal distribution areas (HDAs) are […]

Tips on Selecting Cabling Components for Data Center

Narrowing down and selecting the right combination of cabling components can quickly become overwhelming, especially when you consider the hundreds of comparable components available on the market. Each component has its own advantages and disadvantages, cost variations, and compatibility levels. This is your best chance to get the right equipment purchased and deployed and to […]

Important Criteria for Choosing a Datacenter OTDR

With the technological evolution occurring in data centers, test requirements dramatically changed for the fiber networks that connect mission-critical servers, networking and storage devices. Selecting the proper OTDR to test your network not only strengthens its reliability, but also improves how quickly and efficiently the job is done, as well as documenting the quality of […]

Evolution of MPO Connectors

The MPO was created to provide highly reliable connections in high density fiber applications, primarily in interoffice data network environments. The connector was revolutionary and performed as advertised in its early years, and helped advance optical connectorization in subsequent decades. The data communications industry uses MPO connectors to connect fiber backbone in premises applications, mainframe […]
