Copper Cabling for 40G Data Center

A heated debate over whether fiber will take place of copper in the near future has caught people’s attention lately. Five to seven years ago, fiber was considerably more expensive than copper and, as such, was used sparingly. As fiber price has dropped dramatically and our bandwidth needs have grown, data centers have started to ...

40 Gigabit Ethernet – Brief Technology Introduction

With the continued requirement for expansion and scalability in the data center, deployment of an optical connectivity solution must allow the infrastructure to meet these requirements for current and future data rates. 40 Gigabit cabling solutions just permit the physical expansion of the data center with respect to additional servers, switches or storage devices, as ...

40 Gigabit Ethernet Technology Overview

In the past several decades, Ethernet has evolved to meet the growing demands of packet-switched networks. Due to its proven low cost, known reliability, and simplicity, the majority of today’s Internet traffic starts or ends on an Ethernet connection. 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) that enables the transfer of Ethernet frames at speeds of up to ...
