With the growth of global data volume, parallel optical technology is an important technical for the expansion of current data centers, and the optical transmission rate has continuously evolved from 10Gbps, 40Gbps, 100Gbps to 200Gbps, 400Gbps, and even 600Gbps, 800Gbps. At this year’s OFC conference, a number of Chinese suppliers have successively demonstrated 800G rate optical modules, which means that 800G will enter a new era.
What is parallel optics? Parallel optical technology is a special optical communication technology that transmits and receives signals at both ends of the link. Parallel optical transceiver modules are usually used to achieve high-speed signal transmission at both ends. Parallel optical technology is a cost-effective solution for 4×50G, 8×50Gbps transmission.
If you have ever been to data center, then you must have a deep understanding of the following cabling scenarios.
If an optical circuit can improve such a cabling environment, are you interested?
The optical fiber flex circuit is independently developed by HYC, which provides a solution of efficient routing, high-core number connection, and complete customization. It can be widely used in applications , including multi-core fiber cross transmission, switch equipment, optical backplane interconnection, card-to-card connection, rack-to-rack connection, wavelength selection switch, and high-density fiber management.
A single customized optical fiber flex circuit can replaces the complex bundled jumper connections, which can significantly save equipment space, improve the smoothness of airflow between equipment, and improve the working environment of sensitive components.
The optical circuit can realize the output/input of any connector, as well as direct connection or fusion of the connector; support single-mode/multi-mode and single-core/multi-core fiber. As long as it is designed in advance, it can theoretically support the connection of any number of cores and any polarity link.
HYC’s optical fiber lines use environmentally friendly materials that meet the application of industrial environments, and perform insertion loss, return loss and polarity tests before leaving the factory to ensure that each product can meet the optical characteristic requirements and link polarity requirements designed by the customer. Some forms of products adopt high-efficiency fully automatic production machines, which not only improve production efficiency, but also make the products more compact and beautiful. Machine production can ensure that the direction of each line is accurate and the polarity is correct.
At present, HYC can provide three types of optical circuit, and customers can choose according to the applications, core number, environment, space and other requirements.
Evolution of Optical Transmission Technology in Data Center With the popularization and application of mobile Internet, data center has developed rapidly and become an important infrastructure in the information society. The data center consists of a large number of servers. High speed and large capacity data transmission and exchange are needed between servers. The traditional cable transmission cannot meet the speed requirements. Optical fiber transmission technology has entered the data center since 2010, and has become the mainstream transmission technology.
