Bandwidth demand continues to grow unabated and is predicted to increase at a compound annual rate of nearly 25 percent over the next five years. The use of virtualization in servers has driven intra-data center traffic to new levels, while the rapid deployment of cloud computing applications is creating demand for higher-speed enterprise networks.
In a new article in BICSI’s ICT Today, John Kamino and Roman Shubochkin of OFS discuss how the optical fiber and cabling industry is supporting this need for higher network speeds by developing a new, next-generation multimode fiber – wideband multimode fiber. Learn more here!
Multimode optical fiber has supported the transmission speeds of the fastest networks for many years, with refinements in the fiber manufacturing process enabling increased bandwidth and throughput capability. OM4 fiber is currently the highest-performing, standardized multimode fiber.
In an upcoming webcast sponsored by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, Tony Irujo of OFS will look ahead to the future of multimode fiber, describing the next generation of fiber technology and, specifically, applications for which it is appropriate.
