The Future of Data Center Cabling

Thursday, September 17, 2015

In 2015, the number of servers with 10GbE connections will outpace the number of servers shipped with 1GbE connections. This impact is felt throughout the network resulting in higher data rate switch connections of 40/100GbE. The focus of this webinar explores the various transceiver technologies which are competing in these data rates of 40, 100, 200, and 400GbE. Many of these new technologies are requiring some additional considerations in the structured cabling (breakout applications, parallel transmission, and even a new multi-mode fiber type).

This webinar by Corning discusses the value of deploying a Base-8 cabling infrastructure in order to support the complete roadmap, including a glimpse at Corning’s EDGE8™ solution.
