CommScope_Think Fiber_data center_enterprise_2018There is no doubt that fiber optics is the future of network evolution. With data center workloads expected to grow rapidly by next year, the time for IT managers to think about fiber is now.

CLICK TO TWEET: See why Stephen Kowal says it's time for enterprises to start thinking more about fiber optics.

Faster fiber deployments mean faster time to market, and the right fiber strategy can have a positive effect on both capital expenditure and operating expense. Building out a fiber infrastructure doesn’t have to mean layering on more complexity. Done right, it can deliver the ultimate in simplicity—simplicity in management, planning and execution across the network.

On June 7, 2018, we held a Facebook Live to discuss this very topic. I interviewed Stephen Kowal, senior vice president, Enterprise Sales, CommScope, and asked him for more reasons why it is time for enterprises to start thinking more about fiber optics.
