Panduit’s Signature Core™ Fiber Optic Cabling System white paper investigates the benefits of deploying Panduit’s Signature Core™ Fiber Optic Cabling System in Data Centers, Enterprise, and Factory Automation.
The performance and reliability of networks within the Data Center are vital to the operation of today’s Enterprise. As the performance requirements of these networks have advanced to keep up with the data and virtualization explosion, the specifications on the constituent components have also become more demanding. For high-speed optical networks using laser-optimized multimode fiber (MMF) operating at 10 Gb/s today and 40 and 100 Gb/s in the near future, it is more critical than ever for network operators and designers to have an accurate knowledge of the performance specifications of the active and passive fiber optic components used to make up the network.
Traditionally, much of the focus on the performance of passive fiber optic components has been on the overall optical power loss or attenuation of the fiber cable and connectors. Although loss is a critical parameter for the fiber cable and connectivity, signal impairment related to the fiber bandwidth is also critically important for networks operating at gigabit data rates and above. Traditional techniques of minimizing signal impairments by minimizing the total dispersion have been built upon simplified system models that do not…>>Read More
