Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder
New Cisco® 40-Gbps bidirectional (BiDi) optical technology lets you bring 40-Gbps speeds to the access layer using the same 10-Gbps cable plant you are using today. It is a huge cost savings, whether you are upgrading your current data center or building a new one. And it means you can start taking advantage of 40-Gbps performance for your business right now without needing special budget approval and without having to wait a year to get the capacity you need.
This Technology Brief is divided into two parts. The first part discusses the evolution of Ethernet, and then focuses on 10 Gigabit Ethernet and related transceiver and cabling technologies. The second part examines BLADE’s RackSwitch product line, including 10 GbE applications within enterprise networks and data centers.
