Since the ratification of IEEE 802.3ba, the transition to 40/100G Ethernet speeds is no longer a question of if, but when. We're going to go over the five things you need to know in order to prepare for 40/100G speeds in your data center.

In this webinar, you will learn how to best prepare for 40/100G speeds, including answering the following questions:

  • What is the connector of choice when it comes to 40/100G transmission media?

  • What is the total link distance and what is the loss budget?

  • What is skew," and do I need to worry about it?

  • What bandwidth glass should I be using?

  • What about optical trunk light path? Do parallel optics need a different light path than that of duplex transmissions?
