400 Gbps Data center driven deployments coming in 2017/2018: Heavy Reading

The falling price of 100-Gbps connections within the data center, growth in I/O bandwidth requirements per rack, and a new generation of component technology should combine to drive 400-Gbps optical communications into the field in the 2017/2018 timeframe, says Heavy Reading. The market research firm states in its newly released “400G Components Come Out of […]

Data Center Form Factors

The transceiver form factor will be different as speeds increase. In Table2, we see that different data transmission schemes in the left most column are supported by various form factors. The form factors, themselves, are spelled out by industry Multi Source Agreements(MSA’s). When reviewing the table, it is apparent that there are different form factors […]

FAQ about 40G Optical Network

Q. What is the 40GbE max supported distances? A. The IEEE 40GBASE-X standard describes the following: 40GBASE-SR4 supports up to 100m on OM3, and 150m on OM4. There is no support for OM2 or OM1 (these are considered legacy). 40GBASE-LR4 supports up to 10km on 9um SM fiber (same fiber used for 10G single mode […]

How to clean MPO Connector and MPO Adaptor

a) Connector Ferrule – Exposed EndFace 1) Dry Cleaning: Using a reel-based cassette cleaner with medium pressure, wipe against the dry cleaning cloth (single swipe per exposure) in one direction. There are special cleaners available, which can be used for the pinned and the unpinned (PC and APC polished) MPO connectors. For APC MPO connectors, […]

Time to migrating to 40G/100G

Data growth. The world revolves around digital data. We now rely on data to conduct business, engage in social activities and manage our lives. There is no sign of slowed growth in the production of, and demand for, more data – as well as faster access to it. According to the 2014 IDC Digital Universe […]

IEEE 802.3 forms study groups for 25, 50 and 100/200 Gbit/sec Ethernet

The Ethernet Alliance recently commended the decision to form three study groups within IEEE 802.3. The groups are exploring the development of standards for 25-Gbit/sec Ethernet over singlemode fiber, 50-Gibt/sec Ethernet over a single lane, and next-generation 100- and 200-Gbit/sec Ethernet. The Ethernet Alliance commented that by forming these groups, IEEE 802.3 is “demonstrating Ethernet’s […]

How to choose the right MPO Cassette

Low Insertion Loss. The lower the insertion loss, the more MPO cassettes that can be used in the channel—and the greater flexibility you have in your DC topology. Compatibility with Low-DMD Fibers. A cassette using low-DMD fiber is already compatible with systems using low-DMD fiber. This allows the ISI penalty to be reallocated to the […]

24 Fiber MPO-LC Module Cassettes

A data center is a facility used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. It generally includes redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g., air conditioning, fire suppression) and various security devices. Large data centers are industrial scale operations using as much electricity as […]

Ultrahigh density MPO/MTP cabling system in Data Center

As the data throughput increases, 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s are more commonplace and now become a trend and hotspot for data-center cabling system, plus the fact that MPO/MTP connector is the up-and-coming standard optical interface for 40G and 100G Ethernet network, so it is predicted that MPO/MTP will eventually replace the standards for fiber optics as […]
