Cloud computing and web services continue to drive the need for greater network bandwidth. In fact, this demand is pushing the data communications rates for both enterprise and data center networks up to 100G and beyond.
Given these higher speeds in mind, premises system designers may believe that single-mode fiber holds a growing advantage over multimode fiber. However, higher Ethernet transmission speeds alone do not automatically make single-mode fiber the right choice.
Network developers must consider a variety of factors such as bandwidth, reach and cost-effectiveness. And, with the introduction of bend-insensitive fiber and Wideband Multimode Fiber, it makes sense to revisit the Issue of multimode versus single-mode fiber.
A new white paper by OFS’ Tony Irujo offers a fresh perspective on making the right fiber choice for your premises network.
