Copper and Fiber Connectivity in the Data Center

How are high-speed copper and fiber optic interconnect continuing to evolve to support ever-increasing demand for higher bandwidth, signal integrity, longer reach, and increased face plate density while reducing total system power consumption and cost?

  • What applications will continue to drive exponential demand for data center capacity and speed? Are active optical cables a long-term solution or a transitional tool between copper and fiber networks? How do thermal management issues impact I/O connector selection?
  • What new fiber optic connectors have, or are being developed, to support the many new applications for optical links? Who are the manufacturers developing these and what key features do these interfaces incorporate?
  • Have we reached basic technology limits? What is co-packaged optics (CPO) and how does this approach affect power consumption? Panel density?
  • How have the current iterations of pluggable optical transceivers changed the market? What are the advantages of using pluggables?
  • What are some of the electrical and mechanical limitations associated with using copper? How does cable weight and bulk affect things like weight and cost?

Bishop & Associates’ newest research report, Copper and Fiber Connectivity in the Data Center looks at what maybe the first steps of a major evolutionary change in the market for this class of interfaces.
