Layer 1: Challenging the limits of fiber optic cabling and connectivity

Data communication speeds are constantly increasing to keep up with the demand in bandwidth. Ethernet speeds of 100 Gb/s are being deployed and 400 Gb/s or more are being considered. As the speeds increase, the reach of multimode fiber gets shorter. One way to mitigate the shrinking distance is to the use the highest bandwidth fiber. What if we tell you that the transceivers can help mitigate as well?

Topics to be discussed include:
- Characteristics of cable, connectivity, and transceivers and how they can maximize network reach and flexibility
- Current trends in Ethernet and Fibre Channel and what is coming in the near future.
