Internet of Things (IoT) fuels the staggering growth of data transmission, making the volume of digital data to expand continuously. Meanwhile, user demand for faster access to all this data is increasing parallelly, therefore further contributing to the seemingly insatiable appetite for bandwidth. With 10G and 40G fiber serving as a commonplace in most data centers today, and it is high time to get your infrastructure prepared for the 100/120G and beyond to integrate higher network speeds. In this article, we’d like to offer module fiber patch panel connectivity as an ideal solution to achieve this goal.
Tendency in Data Centers
When you are about to mix 10G and 40G equipment in your data center, you’d better ensure that the existing network of 10G servers and other devices can be connected to the higher-speed switches you are bringing in. And connectivity with future network standards should also be taken into account. While multiple speeds applications coexist in the same data center is not a fresh topic, the parallel optics cabling used for data transmission speeds of 40G and beyond does present a series of connectivity challenges.
Modular patch panels are comprised of rack-mountable enclosures designed to house a range of modular, removable fiber cassettes. Supporting various fiber network cabling standards, the cassettes are easy to mix, match, add and replace as your connectivity needs grow and change. Modular patch panels present an ideal way to create a standards-based, flexible, and reliable network platform in data centers.
The key to modular patch panels solution is modular fiber cassettes, which are available in multiple variations. The cassettes allow you to interconnect different fiber speeds simply by plugging standard duplex LC cables into one side of the cassette and one or more standard MPO/MTP cables into the other side.
