The relentless increase in the amount of information being transferred and stored has prompted the development and use of extremely high-speed data-transmission technologies. Today’s most-demanding networks are deploying 40- and 100-Gbit/sec transmission speeds, setting the stage for wider adoption of these speeds in the future. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, takes a close look at the 40- and 100-Gbit/sec networks being deployed today, including specific emphasis on the cabling systems supporting these high data rates. It also examines other transmission-speed options currently available or under development.
With several different forms and fashions of 40-Gbit/sec transmission available to users, the baseline for a fiber-optic cabling system’s support of this speed is ensured through the testing of installed cabling systems. This presentation explains the testing processes and procedures that confirm a fiber-optic system’s capability to handle 40-Gbit/sec data transmission.
