The biggest challenge in selecting the right fiber type is to carry out a comprehensive analysis of current and future requirements. For most data center operators, aspects such as high bandwidth, low or adjusted latencies and various aspects of power management play a decisive role in their decision. Of course, the costs for optical transceivers as well as system and installation costs must also be kept in mind. As data transfer speeds and technologies continue to evolve, structured cabling should always support network infrastructures with data rates beyond the current data rates.
