Data centers around the globe are migrating to fiber. And it’s no wonder. The move to cloud services, massive virtualization and the explosive growth in data have transformed the business role of data centers.
The result? Dramatically growing bandwidth needs in the interconnect, even within the four walls of the data center. Increasingly reliable infrastructure requirements delivering low latency and packet loss. A need for the best quality of service and experience possible. In short, the drive for innovation and technology to keep up with these changes.
Data centers are moving from copper to fiber and 10G to 40/100G where LC and MPO connectors dominate. Can IT teams and contractors keep up?
Fiber certification is more important than ever. Test equipment and training must support first-time-right results.
It’s a fast-paced world, and no one waits for downtime. Fiber assemblies such as OM3, OM4 and OS1 are becoming more flexible, yet complex and more challenging.
Data center teams need a troubleshooting game plan–not just the right equipment but easily accessed data from certification and acceptance reports.
With the vanguard of the data center world moving to 40G and 100G, transceivers are driving change. Look for easy-to-use solutions to validate the performance of CFP 2/4 and QSFP/QSFP+/28 technologies.
Seek out the ability to assure sourcing predictability and smoothly manage transceiver moves, adds and changes.

This case study examines how one global, data-center company surmounted the daunting task of scaling up to 100G and how EXFO’s solutions, including the high-speed tester, iOLM and fiber inspection probes, helped it achieve its objective while reducing its network outage times by 64%.
Video, cloud computing and other bandwidth-intensive applications are forcing operators to rapidly increase core/metro network capacity. At the same time, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) are driven to make their own customers more agile in the way they do business. At the forefront of innovation, NEMs continuously enhance their offerings without compromising quality. They need best-in-class test equipment to support them in their transformations.
EXFO brings test orchestration and 3D analytics to converged networks testing for 100G and beyond, addressing the needs of NEMs for design, verification and manufacturing.
