In the latest episode CABLExpressTV, the network cabling and wiring infrastructure supplier's senior product manager, Josh Taylor, and his counterpart Brittany Szulis, discuss key considerations for cabling when contemplating the use of 40G LC duplex transceivers that transmit over multimode fiber-optic cables.

Pertinently, a recent white paper from CABLExpress disscusses the challenges involved in "Taking Your Network to 40/100G Ethernet."

"With the ratification of new industry standards and increased demands on data center throughput, 40/100G Ethernet will be an integral component of the next generation data center," states the paper's executive summary. "In fact, it is already an emerging influence on how organizations plan, build and operate their existing data center architecture." The summary continues, "The market proves this: manufacturers are already responding to the increased demand for Ethernet hardware, including cabling products, switches and transceivers."

The paper addresses such key questions for structured wiring professionals as: Why is this shift to 40 and 100G Ethernet happening? What are the factors a cabling company needs to consider when planning cabling infrastructure? What are the best practices for fiber-optic cable installation technicians migrating data centers to 40 and 100G Ethernet? What are the next steps for data centers implementing this cable technology?
