OM3 and OM4 multimode fibers have been the backbone of data center and enterprise cabling for the past decade. Multimode fiber remains the fiber of choice for today's short reach networks, but is its reign coming to an end? Will single-mode fiber become the low cost solution in data centers and enterprise networks?
This presentation will cover the need for increasing bandwidth in today's enterprise data centers and building networks and will discuss work in the fiber industry to develop a next generation multimode fiber that will support multiple wavelengths while maintaining the low cost advantage of VCSEL based technology.
It will discuss advances in the transceiver industry that can take advantage of a next generation short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) multimode fiber.
Finally, it will cover the latest work in standards organizations to define this next generation fiber.
