Technologies evolve so fast that it’s
sometimes hard for the standards to keep pace with the latest performance and
bandwidth benchmarks. It’s even harder for a data center manager to stay
current with these fast-changing application standards.
CommScope plays a big role in pushing
the limits of speed and capacity, so we thought it would only be fair to share
the latest data center application standards in the new white paper, titled “Data Center Applications Standards Reference
Guide for Networking and Storage.”
It’s a useful roadmap that puts all
the relevant standards in one place – for copper and fiber networks running
applications from Ethernet to Fiber Channel to InfiniBand. A lot of these
standards have been updated recently so this white paper is a worthwhile read
for anyone responsible for delivering speed and capacity across applications in
the data center and across the network infrastructure.
These applications on the roadmap come
with different requirements for the cabling infrastructure. The new EN
50600-2-4 telecommunications cabling standard delivers approaches to make your
data center cabling infrastructure ready for the future.

It’s important to know the latest
standards—and know what the future likely holds. I will be talking about these
applications and other important topics in an upcoming webinar series. The
first one focuses on applications specifically, but you may be interested in
the other topics as well. If you’d like to know more, I encourage you to
