Summary

Hyperscales are the standard bearers for innovation, efficiency, and performance among all data centers and other compute-intensive environments. Understanding the hyperscale’s needs and how those needs can best be met, equips networking and cabling professionals with knowledge that can inform decision-making about any data center environment. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance and delivered by experts from Chatsworth Products and CommScope, delivers in-depth information on cabling-system administration as well as capacity planning for the world’s most-demanding network environments.

Presentation 1 - Ken Hall (Commscope):  Cabling for Hyper-fast Speeds and Hyper-flexibility in a Hyperscale Data Center
Nowhere is the saying “Time is money” more true than in the hyperscale data center, where much of the data transmitted has revenue attached and other compute functions carry business-critical implications. The physical-layer supporting infrastructure that enables this fault-intolerant data transmission must be robust, to meet the extreme throughput demands, and flexible, to offer seamless upgrades, adaptations, and changes when the need arises. This presentation, delivered by CommScope’s data center solutions architect Ken Hall, describes the ideal fiber-optic cabling infrastructure for hyperscale data center networks. Addressing topics including architectures, connectivity options, and cable-management considerations, the presentation provides practical information for the design and implementation of an extremely high-performance cabling systems.

Presentation 2 - Tom Carbral (Chatsworth Products): Mastering Logistical Capacity Planning for Data Centers
The rapidly evolving digital landscape, marked by the proliferation of data-driven technologies such as generative AI, Machine Learning, IoT, and edge computing, is propelling a significant shift in the demand for hyperscale capacity, anticipated to triple within the next four years. This expansion underscores the urgent need for strategic data center capacity planning to accommodate the escalating requirements, where a considerable portion of the capacity augmentation is expected to be achieved through the retrofitting of existing data centers. Chatsworth Products’ product application specialist Tom Cabral will deliver this presentation, which takes a close look into the critical challenges that accompany this hyperscale expansion—including the need to support increased power densities, enable fast and large-scale deployments, and deliver on ambitious sustainability initiatives.
