In this presentation we will cover developments in these product areas and how these will be affecting data centers for years to come.”

Attendees will learn the following.

  • Developments in fiber and subsequent cabling designs that are impacting data center and enterprise network designs and efficiency
  • Developments in fiber connectors that are providing for higher densities in panels and cabinets
  • Developments in hardware that are taking advantage of these technological evolutions to reduce costs and space requirements
