This technical paper provides an overview of the most dominant networking and storage applications in modern data centers. Additionally, it functions as an application reference book for network cabling designers in data centers by offering information about the different structured cabling infrastructures capable of running these applications.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
