Much has been written about the many factors driving the requirements for higher speed Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) technology. These factors include high-bandwidth applications and a growing user base, both of which show no signs of slowing down in the foreseeable future; however, what is often not discussed is the investment strategy to implement these new technologies. While the IT group may emphasize the benefits of next generation GbE transmission rates, the business side of the organization is focused in the cost to deploy the solutions.

There are recent developments in optical transceiver technology which allows organizations to migrate to the latest GbE transmission rates while helping to preserve much of their initial investment cost in their cabling infrastructure. What this means to organizations is the ability to deploy next generation GbE technologies cost effectively. CommScope will soon publish a whitepaper with an overview of the technology and how the infrastructure will potentially enable a lower total cost of ownership for enterprises.

Before the whitepaper is published, we can demonstrate our success live and in person. We will be participating at the Datacenter Dynamics event in San Francisco on July 17 in booth 56.

For those attending this event, I would like to personally invite you to stop by our booth where we will be demonstrating next generation 40GbE technology using multimode fiber. This demonstration was created in conjunction with Ixia and Avago Technologies and will highlight how customers deploying CommScope’s SYSTIMAX® InstaPATCH® 360 pre-terminated fiber cabling solution using LazrSPEED® 550 OM4 fiber can protect more than half of their investment.

This event will provide you an excellent opportunity to understand how organizations can cost effectively deploy next generation GbE technologies capable of addressing the exploding demand for bandwidth.
