Is the new Datwyler data centre cabling system also suitable for future higher-speed
applications such as 40/100G Ethernet and 120G InfiniBand®? In order to
provide a qualified answer to this question Datwyler arranged for the system
to be tested under stringent conditions.
Datwyler’s Data Centre Solution passed the 100G test with flying
colours – despite doubling the link length. Up to ten connectors
per link are possible with this solution, thanks to the use of premium
quality cables and components and the high-precision
connector configuration. There was 100% compliance with the
maximum bit error rate of 10-12, and insertion loss was significantly
below the 1.9 dB maximum on all fibres. The skew limits
for 100GbE and 120GIB were easily met, even at double the link
length. This means that even in the 100G test Datwyler’s Data
Centre Solution sets standards for fibre optic cabling systems in
data centres. With its comfortable reserves on the limits of the
applicable standards, it provides headroom for emerging applications
and maximum investment protection.
