Just as today’s businesses are beginning to grasp 40gbs and 100gbs in speed, rapidly evolving fiber architectures will trend toward 400gps. Integrated silicon photonics drives great change to the network roadmap, with impacts on data center design. New leaf-and-spine architectures solve bottlenecks to denser server virtualization. Simplified fiber optics give rise to new networking technologies. Continued demand for lower cost and higher bandwidth within both fiber uplinks and short-reach leaf switch-server connections are pushing advancements in cabling and transceiver technology that will have further implications on the future of fiber optics in the data center. Learn how enablers like photonics will drive more fiber to the network edge, forcing change in data center cabling in the near future.
