On today’s Heavy Networking, sponsored by InterOptic, we explore how to extend the life of your legacy cabling infrastructure in the data center as you grow to 100G Ethernet, and the options available when you need to upgrade.
As organizations move down the path toward 100G, the higher data rates mean that old cabling might not be good enough.
It’s a fair chance that newer Ethernet speeds are not compatible with your existing cable, and now cabling costs become a factor in the selection of pluggable modules.
InterOptic works with customers on these issues and helps them select the right pluggable modules.
