Do you remember
what data centers looked like when they ran 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10GbE? It wasn’t that long ago, yet I bet each of us
smiles when we picture that because of how much data centers have changed with the
25/40/100GbE speeds running today.
That change can
be seen in the encoding schemes used in the packets, the multitude of lane
options in the transceivers, the media types in the transceivers and cables, the
various network architectures, the physical layout of the data centers
themselves and the owner-operator model of the data center spaces.
Looking ahead, what
does the 400GbE that we know is coming in 2019-2020 look like? What do you need to be aware of to help plan
for the migration and the impacts
it poses? Trends already evolving with
100GbE will dramatically accelerate with 400GbE. But while there have been numerous “big
picture” perspectives shared on the move to 400GbE, little has been said about
the tools, designs and solutions that will be required to engineer the shift.
CLICK TO TWEET: Mark your calendars for a CommScope webinar series on preparing for 400GbE.
In a new series
of four live webinars, experts from CommScope and select strategic industry partners
will explore critical topics relevant to 400GbE implementation and provide
practical recommendations, tools and solutions for optimizing your network’s
physical layer for 400GbE. Details and
registration can be found here. We hope
you can join us for this special series. In the meantime, what do you hope we
