Minimizing Fiber Cable Plant ‘Angst’ in Migrating from 10G thru 400G
Robert Reid, Panduit
About this talk
For high-speed multimode fiber based optical networks operating at 10/40/100Gb/s today and 200-400 Gb/s in the near future, it is more critical than ever for network operators and designers to have an accurate knowledge of performance specifications of the active and passive fiber optic components use to make up the network. During this session, we will cover the importance of fiber, distribution hardware and pathways selection and how these can affect signal integrity for networks operating at high gigabit data rates.
To achieve successful migration to 40 or 100-200-400 Gb, it is important to consider the fiber/transceiver options and cost implications (particularly the cost of managing high volumes of fiber cable on distribution frames and in pathways). We will show the advantages of a high-performance MM fiber coupled with BiDi transceivers as a cost-effective migration option that proves very practical in minimizing fiber distribution element ‘sprawl’ and assuring that cable pathways are manageable.
Participants of the live webinar will earn one BICSI CEC. Viewers of the webinar on demand, will need to take a brief knowledge quiz before receiving their CEC.
