High-speed fibre technology facilitates terabit speeds

CommScope has announced new high-speed fibre technology it says will facilitate the migration to terabit speeds required by increased demand for greater computing power.

Data centre demands have soared thanks to the broad uptake of cloud computing, streaming services and AI applications, with industry responding by building new data centres and investing in ways to dramatically increase capacity. CommScope says the new Propel platform will provide reliable connectivity and a robust network infrastructure that aligns with rapidly emerging data centre applications, enabling faster, more efficient access to data.

“Over the past few years, we have witnessed extraordinary technical advances and a rise in computing devices that connect to the real world. Data centres are key assets in the data-driven economy and it’s critical that the industry pay attention to energy usage and space requirements as we move toward terabit speeds,” said John Schmidt, senior vice president, CommScope’s building and data center business.

Next evolution of data centre connectivity

Propel facilitates network modernisation and introduces 16-fibre cabling to support 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps, as well as emerging 1.6 Tbps speeds. This enables leading-edge network architectures to deliver greater capacity to end devices with increased efficiency.
