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 ...

10 Gigabit Ethernet Cabling

Born in the 1970s, Ethernet technology has continually evolved in order to meet the never-ending requirement for faster rates of data transmission. Data carrying techniques have also evolved quickly to meet the demand for faster application speeds. As such, copper and fiber transmission standards have progressed, providing greater bandwidth for transporting data over Ethernet architectures ...
