Now available on demand, a webinar that was delivered live on Tuesday, November 28, by Cabling Installation & Maintenance’s sister publication ISE focused on data centers. Delivered by Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s senior product manager for data centers, Greg Pierce, the session is titled “Recent Fiber, Cable and Hardware Updates Affecting Data Center Designs.” BICSI approved the session for one continuing education credit (CEC) toward the renewal of BICSI’s professional credentials including Data Center Design Consultant (DCDC), Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD), Registered Telecommunications Project Manager (RTPM), and Outside Plant Specialist (OSP).
When describing the session’s content, ISE explained, “Ongoing developments in the worlds of optical fibers, the methods of connecting them, the cables that transport them, and the housings that protect and provide appropriate access to them, are constantly evolving to be more efficient and to better meet the ever-demanding needs of data center customers. 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
