The Next TechTalk Webinar:

> The Journey to 400/800G Has Begun: Which Road Will You Take?

Only a decade ago, the enterprise data center industry was discussing the migration from 10 gigabits per second (Gb/s) to 40/100Gb/s for uplinks and 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s for server connections. Now IEEE standards exist for 400Gb/s over Multimode and Singlemode fiber, and the IEEE Beyond 400Gb/s Ethernet Study group is defining physical layer specifications to support 800Gb/s and potentially 1.6 Terabits per second (Tb/s).

Whilst a migration to 400/800Gb/s may seem farfetched for the enterprise any time soon, trends in Digital Transformation and bandwidth-intensive applications have hyperscale and larger cloud data centers already in the planning and early deployment stages. These trendsetters have inherently propelled technology advancement for the wider industry, making the road to 400/800Gb/s easily travelable and perhaps not as far away as the enterprise might think.

Join Gary Bernstein, Global Data Center Solutions Specialist at Siemon as he examines the implications of 400G/800G on the data center environment. This session will highlight the available technologies, strategic approaches and design impacts on your layer 1 infrastructure and how to approach planning for/and delivering this successfully in the years to come.

Join our exclusive session to explore:

  • The evolving DC landscape & drivers for 400G/800G
  • What impact this will have on Enterprise and Cloud environments
  • Changes in your network architecture to support these speeds
  • The technologies available today and future roadmaps you need to be aware of

  • When: Thursday, October 14, 2021
    10:00 - 13:00 EST | 15:00 - 16:00 GMT | 16:00 - 17:00 CET
