MPO connectors are ready for prime time

As the industry deploys 40-Gbit/sec optical networks and moves ahead to 100-Gbit/sec data rates, service providers and data center managers may question whether the multi-fiber push-on (MPO) connector can perform reliably at those speeds. They saw the first-generation MPO as a “weak link” in optical networking, primarily because of its higher optical loss, lack of […]

Fast field terminate MPO connectors

Currently Data center required everywhere for big data. Many manufacturer all start to demonstrate the tools and procedures by which installation technicians can field-terminate MPO-style fiber connectors. MPO fusion-spliced, field-terminated connectors feature just six components. With a factory prepolished ferrule, their field-termination process eliminates polishing, adhesives and crimping in the field, minimizing the potential for […]

Cabling and Test Considerations for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GigE) Local Area Networks

Introduction Current communication data rates in local networks range from 10/100 megabits per second (Mbps) in Ethernet to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) in fiber distributed data interface (FDDI) and Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). However, the increasing demand for internet protocol (IP)-based services including voice, video, and data requires higher speeds and greater bandwidth, leading to […]

What should i choose for data center. Copper or Fiber, Active or Passive?

Cabling is an increasingly important topic in the data center. This focus is growing with the proliferation of 10 Gb/s and 40 Gb/s cables in volume today, with 100 Gb/s cables already starting deployments, and with both intra-rack and inter-rack applications. Passive cabling provides a direct electrical connection between corresponding cable ends. Active cables provide […]
