A comprehensive and discussion-provoking, panel conversation involving about the following decisions to consider when it comes to the importance of design and installation of fiber optic infrastructures and the equipment they support within a data center environment. • Bulletproof Fiber redundancy - Design your fiber infrastructure to maintain connectivity-always. • In Rack or Above Rack Connectivity, what is right? We discuss the age old question, what is more efficient? • Singlemode vs. Multimode Fiber – discussing the differences and what is the best bang for your buck? • Center Row, or End row, what is your thought behind these two popular DC layouts? - This topic will be to discuss what is best, to cable from the middle of the row or end of the row. Diving into cost efficiency based on material and labor. • Splice or not to Splice? - We will discuss the good and bad of pulling large fiber counts to designated splice points on your DC floor to create a zone connectivity rather than pulling fiber to every rack or every row.
