The future VCSEL-LOMMF landscape in data centers - June 27th, 2013 | TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium

As data rates continue to spiral upwards, those planning new data centers seek to deploy the most cost-effective solutions. Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) coupled with laser-optimized multimode fiber have provided the lowest cost and lowest power optical solutions through 10GE & 16GFC and are continuing this trend at 32GFC, 40GE, & 100GE, while alternate technologies continue to emerge. Meanwhile future data rates of 128GFC & 400GE are under study. The 40GE and 100GE solutions use parallel fiber transmission, which changes the port appearance at patch panels and electronic faceplates. But choosing the right polarity method enables graceful upgrades and simple circuit administration.


TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium's insight:

Don't miss our upcoming webinar by Mabud Choudhury of CommScope on June 27th 2013. Participants will earn one BICSI ITS credit.


This webinar will cover:

 

  • Why VCSELs and MMF lead to lower cost solutions
  • Past and future usage trends for Multimode and Single-mode fiber
  • Tabulation of data rates vs. MMF laned and form factors from 10G up
  • Parallel cabling
  • 40G or 4x 10G adoption models
  • A look into the future of 400GE
  • Polarity methods

The Need for Encircled Flux: Real or Imaginary? | TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium

The Need for Encircled Flux: Real or Imaginary? | TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium | Webinars | Scoop.it
This presentation will look at the impact of multimode fiber launch conditions and how Encircled Flux requirements can be practically met in the field.
TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium's insight:

This popular Webinar, The Need for Encircled Flux, Real or Imaginary? presented by Adrian Young of Fluke Networks is available to watch on demand at TIA's BrightTalk Channel.


As multimode fiber loss budgets become tighter, installers must take a second look at their fiber strategies. This normally means improving connector losses to meet ever tightening loss budgets (limits).  

 

There is however another important aspect that has come to light. The launch condition of their multimode sources can mean the difference between a PASS and a FAIL. The launch condition used to be qualified as the Coupled Power Ratio. That is a standard that no longer works and has been replaced with Encircled Flux.  

 

This presentation will look at the impact of multimode fiber launch conditions and how Encircled Flux requirements can be practically met in the field.  

 

Attendees will earn one (1) BICSI Continuing Education Credit for participating in the Webinar.
