The Battle Continues – Single-Mode Fibre Versus Multi-Mode Fibre 

As data centre operators cope with the ever increasing bandwidth demands from 1 GbE to 10 GbE and beyond, careful considerations must be taken with regard to the choice between multi-mode fibre and single-mode fibre infrastructure and connectivity. Historically, the tradeoffs have focused on higher capital costs for single-mode fibre systems versus multi-mode fibre systems relative to the data rate and distance requirements. Today, with the costs for single-mode fibre electronics approaching parity to multi-mode fibre electronics, the argument becomes more persuasive towards single-mode fibre. 

However, the migration to single-mode systems highlights other concerns that were not as prevalent in multi-mode systems. 

This presentation reviews some of the advantages and limitations of multi-mode fibre systems, and cases where single-mode fibre systems presents itself as a viable economical and robust solution.

Bandwidth Migration Path Options for Data Centers and Telecommunication Service Providers 

Both Cloud Service Providers and Telecommunication Service Providers face insatiable bandwidth demands from different perspectives, and as a result have different options to consider. 

Cloud Service Providers are increasingly looking to MSA (Multi-Source Agreements) roadmaps as a viable option to stay ahead of the demand curve in the data centre environment, whereas Telecommunication Service Providers tend to use proven standards based approaches to their solutions. 

Both migration strategies provide a glimpse into technologies that are being deployed, or about to be released on a large scale by a small group of users, and that will very quickly flow down to the traditional Enterprise Data Centre operator. 

This presentation will review some of the promising migration paths from WDM (wave division multiplexing), to PDM (polarization division multiplexing), to significant improvements in optical fibre technologies that will meet the data rate requirements expected of Cloud Service Providers and Telecommunication Service Providers.
