The data center market is about to go through a significant upgrade cycle in technology that has implications for how data center buildout designs evolve. Several new technologies are all going to hit the market at the same time. The industry is moving towards 7nm technology across most of the semiconductor space. At the same time, chiplets are moving front and center as an important building block. 112Gbit/s SerDes, custom-built artificial intelligence (AI) chips, and the adoption of PCI Gen4 are about to be adopted ...

It’s no surprise to see disaggregated optical networks being widely adopted by data center providers.  It’s an approach that fulfils their needs perfectly. Disaggregation triggers innovation, increases flexibility to mix and match best-of-breed networking components, avoids implementation lock-in and integrates into open source and commercial orchestration. What’s more, it accommodates the different lifecycles of various networking components. Line terminals, for example, usually follow a much shorter innovation cycle than optical line systems ...

In recent years, SDN and NFV have matured from technologies with potential into mandatory requirements for agile, fast and cost-efficient production of communication services. We’re now seeing widespread deployment with communication service providers (CSPs) implementing ambitious digitization projects. Many CSPs are combining this with a transition towards full automation and even autonomous operations, while also minimizing the amount of proprietary hardware. Standard hardware components in combination with network operating systems and software appliances will form the networks of the future ...
