Webcast Description:

Today, trailblazing network operators including service providers and hyperscale data centers are pushing transmission speeds up to 400 Gbits/sec. While these few users are facing the headwinds that challenge early adopters, they also are paving a path for future network owner/operators, who will benefit from the standards and technical developments that will enable widespread deployment of greater-than-100G speeds. This webcast seminar examines the roadmap to speeds beyond 100G, discussing the options that currently exist and that are emerging for future adopters. The seminar provides an opportunity for users that are pushing 100G speeds today to learn and plan for their next generations of network upgrades.

Standards and Cabling Beyond 100G:The demand for bandwidth continues to grow and higher network speeds are needed to support this demand. With 10- and 40-Gbit/sec networks common today and 100-Gbit/sec speeds being deployed in large volumes, new short-reach standards and Multi-Source Agreements (MSA) are being introduced to support 200- and 400-Gbit/sec speeds. Use of multiple wavelengths in a multimode fiber, common in singlemode, is now being standardized for the first time in the latest 400-Gbit/sec work. The evolution of optical speeds is also leading to single-wavelength 100-Gbit/sec transmission over multimode fiber, and discussions have begun in the IEEE 802.3 New Ethernet Applications (NEA) ad-hoc group about standardizing the technology. This presentation will examine how, in the midst of this high-speed progression, the low cost and power consumption of a vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL)-based transceiver and multimode fiber solution continue to provide advantages for short reach data center and enterprise networks.

Achieving and Exceeding Loss Budgets of 100-400G StandardsThe biggest challenge for next-generation high-speed optics transmission is the specified loss budget for these optical links. Data center optical cabling plants must be ready. As high-speed standards are deployed in the data center, their specifications of media types (e.g. singlemode and multimode fiber) and transmission schemes (e.g. serial, parallel, WDM) present a challenge to achieve the very low loss link budgets that are specified in standards—as well as build a structured cabling system using spine-and-leaf and 2- or 3-layer topologies. This presentation specifically addresses these challenges in the TIA568.3-D component standard, and the material performances critical to achieve a manageable and working high-speed structured cabling plant.
