Data centers around the globe are migrating to fiber. The move to cloud services, massive virtualization and explosive growth in data have transformed the business role of data centers. This presentation will cover the following topics in detail: • The trends and evolution of the data-center market. • The main physical-layer infrastructures that can be leveraged to build next-generation data centers. • Why connector insertion and return losses are increasingly important for migration to 100G+ interfaces. • The most relevant test and monitoring steps from construction to turn-up and troubleshooting, for 100G+ interfaces such as CFP4 and QSFP28, and network performance tests in the intra- and interconnect. • Service assurance possibilities offered to the DC industry, including infrastructure monitoring, cloud monitoring and subscriber analytics.
