The economics of port breakout

Port-breakout deployments have become a popular networking tool and are driving the large industry demand for parallel optics transceivers. Today, port breakout is commonly used to operate 40G/100G parallel optics transceivers as four 10G/25G links. Breaking out parallel ports is beneficial for multiple applications, such as building large scale spine-and-leaf networks and enabling today’s high-density 10/25G networks. The latter task is the focus of this article.

Corning unveils SMF-28 Ultra 200 fibre

Corning has announced its newest singlemode optical fibre, Corning SMF-28 Ultra 200 fibre, which it claims is the industry’s first 200-micron fibre with a 9.2 micron nominal mode-field diameter (MFD).  SMF-28 Ultra 200 fibre enables the design of smaller, lighter, fully backwards-compatible, high-fibre, high-density cables.
