Learn about computing and advanced testing solutions from VIAVI
VIAVI Solutions partners with major players deploying robust data center interconnects (DCI) in cloud-based, hyperscale environments to reduce testing time, optimize optical networks, reduce latency and ensure 100% reliability that supports SLAs.
Data Center Interconnect
With hyperscale data centers furtively meeting the insatiable demand for memory, bandwidth, compute capabilities, storage and speed, Data Center Interconnect (DCI) has garnered increased recognition as a critical, gating element of the overall network topology.
Transport pathways between data centers are subject to rapid expansion and reconfiguration. In this adaptive environment, the value of DCI throughput testing, network monitoring, remote fiber monitoring, and automated MPO connector testing are indisputable.
VIAVI has established a commitment to performance and flexibility by delivering an advanced test portfolio that extends from the lab to the field. By partnering with private and public cloud providers, internet service providers, and other hyperscale proprietors, VIAVI has stayed ahead of the challenging manufacturing, commissioning, data center certification, latency testing, and monitoring requirements that ensure flawless reliability and SLA support.
With nearly 100 years of communications technology testing experience, VIAVI is uniquely qualified to work with standards bodies and operators alike to bridge the gap between interoperability and ongoing innovation.
What is Data Center Interconnect?
It refers to the technology used to link together two or more individual data centers to pool resources, balance workloads, replicate data, or implement disaster recovery plans – and provide data closer to the edge. Fiber optic DCIs are deployed over short, medium, or long distances, typically ranging from 5km to 150km. A wide array of optical transport technologies is utilized to maximize bandwidth and minimize latency as cloud computing and the IoT continue to drive new levels of scale and complexity.
The demand for storage and speed has led to a increase of new locations around the world, including many in the hyperscale category with thousands of interconnects between them. With 256 QAM modulation, 400G can now be achieved on a single wavelength. This innovation provides a much-needed capacity boost, while fault detection, throughput, latency, and stress testing remain essential during installation.
VIAVI supports the data center interconnect market from end-to-end by providing powerful, innovative data center solutions for the construction, commissioning, expansion, and monitoring of DCIs. This holistic approach encompasses robust performance verification over the DCI as well as the comprehensive testing of the essential equipment populating the hyperscale ecosystem.
