Data Center Cable Infrastructure

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Time: 12:00 PM EST / 9:00 AM PST

Overview:
Data Centers vary widely in nature and can be roughly classified as hyperscale, multi-tenant, and private. A critical and common component in the operation of such data centers is the installation and maintenance of the physical cabling infrastructure. A fundamental change taking place is the evolution from cables using classic connectors on copper (RJ-45) or fiber optics (LC) to cables terminated by pluggables such as SFP or QSFP. This represents a new challenge as these cables, called Active Optical Cable (AOC) or Direct Attach Copper (DAC), are not easily validated and tested.

The webinar will cover:

  • the evolution of operational requirements
  • how to reduce costs by validating cables before installation
  • how to apply meaningful methods to ensure cable reliability to safely transfer data within the data center.
