The amount of data that we send to each other has exponentially increased over time. This has led to an overload of traffic on data centre networks. To keep up with the rapid increase in data output, businesses must adapt and upgrade to faster networks.
Files like HD videos, 5G applications and large cloud storages are the main contributors to this surge in data. This has placed pressure on industry giants such as Verizon Media, as they look to change the data processing game.
As the need to be able to transport data is forever increasing, firms will need to look to the future and invest for tomorrow.
When Should You Upgrade?
The current standard for businesses connectivity is 100G. However, companies should be looking to tomorrow instead of today. As we all know that technology will keep on progressing, just as day turns to night.
So, the answer for this issue is to upgrade to 400G, which may be just around the corner. The only issue is, it’s not quite available yet.
Do you currently upgrade to the industry standard of 100G and upgrade to the new standard when it becomes available, creating two separate investments?
It seems that Verizon has found a solution to this issue using Smartoptics’ DCP-M system.
Upgrading Made Easy
Using Smartoptics DCP-M system, upgrading from 100G to 400G has become more streamlined, creating an easier process. The open line system from Smartoptics can help make the switch without having to put up a major investment.
The cost-effective solution to this data issue will help businesses that require heavy amounts of data usage make the switch when the technology becomes available. Not settling for one or the other. Companies can quite simply add terabits of data capacity whenever consumer demand requires it.
Smartoptics aims to make its products “future proof” (Smartoptics CMO Per Burman), saving businesses large amounts of capital. The idea behind their simple open line system was so that a company could easily replace the current receiver with a newer one. Effectively, changing the requirements needed when upgrading network systems.
100G or 400G connectivity? Why not both?
A business network system that can allow for easy and cost-effective upgrades is worth its weight in gold.
The traditional decision for businesses used to be either current industry standards (100G), which would require updating in the future, or waiting for technology that has not been invented (400G).
This can allow for businesses to see a strong return on investment in networking as “you can now have your cake and eat it too.” (Smartoptics CMO Per Burman)
