25G Cabling Solutions: SFP28 Transceiver VS. SFP28 Twinax Cable VS. Cat8 Cable

Developed by IEEE 802.3 task force P802.3by, 25G Ethernet is a new standard for Ethernet connectivity in a data center environment. This standard was derived from 100G Ethernet standard, however, its operation works as a single lane connection with 25Gbps that can be run on fibers or coppers. To support 25G Ethernet, there are three […]

Understanding Array Polarity With Parallel Link

The use of pre-terminated fiber assemblies and cassettes is growing, and the deployment of systems with speeds up to and beyond 100G are on the horizon for many users. As a result, the issue of maintaining polarity in parallel fiber-optic links is becoming increasingly important. In the previous posts, we have introduced polarity in point-to-point […]

Efficiently and Conveniently Integrate 10G, 40G, and 100G Equipment With MTP Breakout Patch Panel

Not all that long ago, Ethernet networks that supported 10G speeds were considered amazingly fast, and now 40G is the norm in most data center. As 40G Ethernet becomes a standard in data centers, the challenge of connecting 40G equipment with existing 10G equipment moves front and center. Adding further complexity, it’s clear that organizations […]

Applications of MTP Conversion Harness Cable

As we all know, Base-8, Base-12 and Base-24 are three mainstream MTP backbones widely used for higher speed 40/100G data centers. Many of today’s legacy infrastructures are using a Base-12 MTP backbone design, however, experience shows us that this connector is not very suitable for higher rate switches or servers. And at present, base-8 is […]

Why Should We Choose SMF for Future-Proof Data Center Cabling?

When choosing fiber optic cable, users will always be in a delimma: single-mode or multimode, which one should we choose? Although multimode is cheaper in price, many facts indicate that single-mode cabling is better for future-proof data center cabling. MMF: A Penny Wise but A Pound Foolish Price is always the first factor that customers […]
