ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, will be hosting a webinar covering Migration Strategies to 40G & 100G Over Multimode Fiber on May 24, 2012 from 2:00-3:00pm EDT, presented by Paul Kish, Director of Systems & Standards at Belden.
This presentation will provide an overview of the cabling requirements for networks operating on 40GBASE-SR4 and 100GBASE-SR10. Attendees will receive guidance on an effective migration strategy to 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet over multimode fiber; optical fiber loss testing for accurate measurements; and the need for low-loss connectors to meet tight insertion loss budgets for 40G and 100G Ethernet links.
- Understand the need for 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit applications in a Data Center
- Learn about the relative economics of 10 Gigabit versus 40 Gigabit & 100 Gigabit over Optical Fiber
- Understand the cabling requirements for 40GBASE-SR4 and 100GBASE-SR10
- Discover effective migration strategies from 10 Gigabit to 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit Ethernet over multimode fiber
- Recognize the additional challenges of optical fiber loss testing for accurate measurements and the need for low- loss connectors to meet tight insertion loss budgets for 40G and 100G Ethernet links.
There is a need for increased network bandwidth to meet the global IP traffic demand, which is growing at a rate of 30% per year. In order to meet this demand, an effective migration strategy is required to transition from 10Gb Ethernet to 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet 100GbE over multimode fiber for switch-to-server and storage area network connections in data centers, and for core switching and routing connections in the backbone.
