With the emergence of data convergence trends in network applications, data center cabling is becoming an important infrastructure for industries with large data flow and information flow such as finance, large and medium-sized enterprises, and medical care. It also puts greater demands on fiber closure. And demand, hope that the intelligent cabling system can reduce the cost of the company's hardware facilities while protecting the security of corporate information flow.
In the big data environment, the information network has developed rapidly and mobile digital terminals have promoted data explosion. Related to this, the discarding of copper fiber for data centers is already the mainstream. In this series of changes, the corresponding technology and construction ideas have to change. So, what kind of design and problems do we have to face in our fiber optic cabling?
The development trend of data centers or modules with different functions will be superimposed and increased or decreased. For sudden applications and expansion requirements, the adaptability of our fiber optic cabling systems, especially fiber cabling equipment, needs to be enhanced in order to achieve the shortest possible time. Make modular adjustments within. The simplification of the structure is also conducive to the rapid expansion of the previous article. Currently, the core/aggregation/access three-layer networking solutions used in the design have technical difficulties in network delay, network congestion, and inconvenient expansion. The new thinking will be considered as a core that is easier to manage. The trunk/branch two-layer flat structure can reduce the management workload and optimize the network delay.
Enhanced Ethernet should support multiple types of transport, including FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) and TCP/IP. Enhanced Ethernet will be able to connect servers and storage, IP networks, and other servers together to provide clustered applications service. Compared to the current two traditional network systems: LAN using TCP/IP protocol and SAN storage network using FiberChanel protocol, the two networks are incompatible with each other, and future data center networks are already available in shorter time. The ability to transmit large amounts of data in the environment, enhanced Ethernet ideas will reduce the number of equipment, improve energy efficiency, reduce wiring and maintenance costs.
