Data-centers transformations part-2: The Interconnect Story

Anabel Alarcon

Transport and Datacom Product Specialist, EXFO

Anabel Alarcon brings to EXFO ten years of experience on networking troubleshooting for IP, MPLS and mobile backhaul technologies, her background allowed her to be part of the support team on the most important network manufacturers on the market. Supporting different services provider’s networks across Latin America, participating on product introduction and infrastructure implementation, also becoming account dedicated engineer for the most important service provider in Mexico.

With the exponential increase in customers’ need for speed, the use of interconnectivity and cloud-based applications to handle more bandwidth is ubiquitous in data center infrastructure. Data centers must find new solutions for 100G networks and beyond and the Data Center Interconnect (DCI) must grow accordingly.

This session will discuss the best practices to keep in mind when planning the turn-up or upgrade of DCI links, especially for 100G/400G migrations.  Topics of discussion will include the full network lifecycle, from commissioning to turn-up and even troubleshooting. The session will provide you with all the latest 100G+ optical and transport testing information, including:

  • How to demystify the different types of optical interfaces, including CFP4, QSFP28, QSFP+ and other pluggable transceivers and how to best troubleshoot issues or failures
  •  Ethernet testing fundamentals, including latency measurement and analysis
  • OTN testing
  • 400G trends
