"Traffic is expected to grow faster than Moore’s Law, with a 10-fold increase in the next 4 years, a 100-fold increase in the next 8 years” Deutsche Telecom

Independent data shows that bandwidth demand will escalate beyond 10Gigabit in data centres within 5 years so it is vital to plan a cost effective migration strategy when implementing cabling infrastructure.

Introduced by Mike Holmes, UK Marketing Manager, the webinar includes a repeat of the highly successful presentation given by Dr. Alan Flatman, LAN Technologies, from the recent Nexans Technology Network Seminar in London which examines some of the issues driving developments within IEEE.

Martin Rossbach, Director of Product Marketing, Nexans Cabling Solutions  follows by looking at potential options to consider when planning copper and fibre network infrastructures.

The webinar concludes with a Q&A session.
