400 Gb/s switch options have only entered the market recently, and many expect to see 400 Gb/s to see real adoption this year, with data center market analyst Dell'Oro expecting shipments to reach 15 million ports by 2023. 400 Gb/s brings not only much faster speeds but greater network density, so it's easy to see why it's taking off.
With so many transceiver options for 100, 200, and 400 Gb/s in both single-mode and multimode, it is important to plan for a cabling design that can handle multiple tech refreshes. Leviton’s single-mode and multimode cabling systems not only meet current bandwidth requirements, but also provide the flexibility needed to meet future network demands, including 100G, 400G, and beyond. These systems include high density patching, solutions for fast deployment, and customizable trunks and cable assemblies that give data center managers the exact solution they need, delivered fast.
The Opt-X™ Unity Fiber Migration System is a single, simple connectivity solution that reduces cost and saves time by reusing the fiber backbone. This makes it easy to migrate from 10 to 40, 100, 200 and 400 Gb/s networks while increasing the frequency of tech refreshes, reducing labor and minimizing network downtime. The system components are available in multimode and single-mode systems (OM3/OM4/OS2), and feature industry-leading 24-fiber MTP® connectors.
