Speeds, feeds and customer needs - what will data center networks look like in 2030?
An explosion of data generation, 800G-1T development, and the shift towards E/W traffic flow dictate that the networks in our data centers need to provide for high bandwidth, high density and low latency - the holy trinity for next-gen applications. As trends in switching change and fiber proliferates, are operators thinking far enough ahead to ensure lightning speeds are maintained?
This panel will provide insights into how the wider ecosystem and data center models are evolving, the behaviours of key network players, the standards and regulations, and where the development dollars are going. Tune in to find out what leading edge optics, hierarchies, and protocols will enable the connectivity backbone to support the ongoing transformation in the data center.
