This business and technical white paper is an exploration of the data center fiber optic networking infrastructure requirements needed to meet current and future demands for data volumes and data rates. It covers how 200Gigabit (Gbps) and 400Gbps Ethernet (GE) fiber optic technologies evolved and how they should advance to 800GE and 1.6TE.
Over the last two years, we have been inundated by requests from wholesale and colocation clients to help develop winning proposals supporting hyperscale tenants. While each proposal we develop is customized to the hyperscale tenant, there are similarities and differences among each request.
The critical facilities industry relies on industry standards to establish the minimum requirements necessary to design, build, and operate critical sites. Some of these standards get adopted by federal, state, and local governments through legislation as enforceable codes.
The next decade will continue to see growth in the number of IP-connected mobile and machine-to-machine devices, which will handle significant amounts of IP traffic. Tomorrow’s consumers will demand better online experiences and faster, smoother Wi-Fi service and application delivery from online providers.
The mission critical industry has been growing rapidly the last few years and is expected to continue strong for the foreseeable future. To what do you attribute that growth and how long might it continue?
Across a wide range of industries and applications, the world’s data needs continue to expand at an unprecedented rate.

On Demand An edge data facility is still a data center. One still and must consider design, construction, and operational habits that result in high levels of system availability, maintainability, and resiliency. The disaggregation that edge poses will distribute compute and storage assets, and the challenge will be placing edge assets into sufficiently robust facilities or enclosures outside of traditional data centers where those local solutions can equally sustain those IT operations and systems.
Mission Critical Magazine’s 2019 January/February issue takes a deep dive into mission critical facility design as well as the challenges of managing capacity, and another installment of our panel discussion on the state of the data center industry with three industry thought leaders.
