With everything moving to be on-line and remote, the demands being placed on our data centers are larger than ever. This is true for all types and sizes of data centers, from the largest Hyperscale, to Private, and even Edge. Come and learn about the latest advancements in Single and Multimode fiber and how they are being used in data centers with one of the world’s leading fiber manufacturers and a leading test equipment manufacturer. This presentation will look at the latest applications and the requirements for fiber to support them. After that, we will look at testing these fibers. How do we calculate a loss budget for the applications we are currently supporting and planning to support? How can we increase our confidence in the test results? At the end of this presentation you will understand how improvements in fiber construction allow communications at multiple wavelengths are helping to reach speeds in excess of 400G as well as what testing will assure that the fiber has been properly installed.
