Cabling Connectivity Options for 40Gbps Infrastructure

Driven by growing bandwidth and network performance demand, data center network infrastructure is witnessing a transformation. The speed of data center now is increasing to 40 Gbps. Thus, new cabling infrastructure and cabling connectivity options are required. Here some commonly used cabling connectivity options for 40Gbps infrastructure will be introduced in this post. Pluggable Modules: ...

Upgrading to 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet

To support the changing and fast-growing bandwidth demands of data centers (DCs), the IEEE ratified standards for supporting 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GE) and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GE), known as IEEE 802.3ba. 40GE and 100 GE belong to a family of network technologies that primarily are used in local area networks. As they are becoming more ...

The 40G QSFP transceiver Comparison

Data center regularly went through great migration from 1G, 10G to 40G, 100G over the past few decade. Since IEEE 802.3ba standard defined the 40G Ethernet on June 17, 2010. The newest widely adopted optical transceivers is the QSFP+ that offers aggregated optical speeds of 40G. There are many variants for QSFP+ small from factor ...
