Data Center TOPICS


The broad advantages of structured cabling over point to point cabling (such as that used on top of rack configurations in a data center) are seen as: improved energy efficiency increased switch port utilization quicker system adaption greater scalability easier network expansion less maintenance and administration less expensive switches overall lower cost of ownership.   […]

Products for utilizing structured fiber cabling infrastructure

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 […]

Inspect and Clean High Density MPO/MTP Connector

Before you install the MTP/MPO connectors in the data center, it is essential that all the fiber end-faces and the ferrule are really clean. especially when you thinking about lining up 12, 16, 24 or 32 pieces of 9um fibers in one or two rows, it requires tremendous precision. Any dirts in the mix on […]

Polaritetens betydelse för MPO/MTP

MPO/MTP är en flexibel, hållbar samt skalbar teknisk lösning med hög densitet, och är samtidigt en av de mest relevanta teknikerna för att migrera system över till 40 & 100G Ethernet. En av stötestenarna som en nätverksdesigner behöver tänka på, är hur man försäkrar sig i att rätt polaritet på sändande/mottagande fibrer uppnås från start […]

De ontwikkeling van nieuwe IEEE 802.3 Ethernet-standaarden

25GBASE-SR Door de ontwikkeling van 100GBASE-SR4 in 2015 werd het noodzakelijk een nieuwe standaard te ontwikkelen voor een lagere snelheid in de vorm van 25GBASE-SR. Deze is in 2016 formeel vastgelegd als IEEE 802.3by Ontwikkeld voor het aggregeren van vier 25G server-poorten naar één 100G switch-poort De transceiver gebruikt de bekende SFP+ form factor met […]

Testing and structured cabling standards: Harmonization?

By SEYMOUR GOLDSTEIN, Fluke Networks — If you ever attended a Standards meeting you might have heard the word “harmonization” mentioned frequently. The idea of harmonization, somewhat of a holy grail, is to have standards from different organizations agree. For example, imagine if the TIA, IEC, and ISO/IEC organizations used the same test standard. Actually, […]

CS Connector – The Next Generation of Data Centre Connectivity by Senko

Senko’s new CS connector is specifically designed for Data Centre 400G optimization. Intended to complement the form factor of the next generation of (OSFP/ QSFP-DD) transceiver modules, the CS connector meets the requirement for 2x100G/200G CWDM4 transceivers requiring two pairs of TX/RX. Customer benefits include: 36 % reduction in size. Pitch is reduced to 3.8mm […]

What are the reasons a data center might consider installing OM5?

“OM5 offers a longer cabling reach than OM4.” The difference is minimal. For all the current and future multimode IEEE applications including 40GBASE-SR4, 100GBASE-SR4, 200GBASE-SR4, and 400GBASE-SR16, the maximum allowable reach is the same for OM5 as OM4 cabling. Based on application testing recently done with 40G-SWDM4 transceivers, it has been proven that OM4 could […]
