This webinar is the first of a series around transmission technologies and testing for next-gen data centers.

The webinar explores emerging technologies and trends for intra data center (IDC) networks, and related challenges. Indeed, with the exponential increase in customer consumption and the need for speed, the use of interconnectivity and cloud-based applications to handle more bandwidth is ubiquitous in the data center infrastructure. Data centers must find new high speed solutions for IDC networks to grow accordingly. This also includes disruptive solutions like edge computing.

Understanding emerging trends like server and switch data rate migration—plus challenges associated with new fiber deployments and automation—will be key to achieving the performance, efficiency, and scalability required in the data center network ecosystem.

Key takeaways:

  • Emerging technologies and trends for today’s data center
  • How cloud and edge are becoming key elements in this ecosystem
  • Innovative solutions for testing optical fiber from construction to service turn-up
  • Industry best practices on fiber optic installation and service turn-up
  • Overcoming challenges in the validation of pluggables and cables
  • Remote control and automation tools that improve network perspective and visibility
