The importance of the physical layer
Why layer one fiber optic cabling is critical

Specifying Fiber Infrastructure as a Critical Network Component

cabling standards whitepaperLayer one cabling is now a critical network component

Historically, network designers considered active hardware such as switches, servers, and storage devices to be the most critical network components. Consequently, the fiber optic cabling (physical layer) design portion of the network was an afterthought. This is a mistake designers can no longer afford to make.

 

 

Our free white paper, Specifying Fiber Infrastructure as a Critical Network Component, illustrates:

  • Industry standards and specs for fiber optic cable manufacturing
  • The importance of low optical fiber loss
  • Definitions of thermal and humidity cycling and other critical testing procedures
  • Essential factors to look for in an MPO connector
