Does your fiber optic network require higher bandwidth?
Does your network have bandwidth requirements? Is your cabling infrastructure composed of multimode fibers? This article provides a flowchart to determine if the innovative AROONA solution can help resolve your issue.
In the article, “is your network cabling infrastructure limiting your productivity?”, we focus on the increasing demand for higher bandwidth and the issue of bandwidth limitation inherent to multimode fibers deployed in local networks. The main preconceived idea is that the optical cabling infrastructure has a finite performance envelope that cannot be increased without physically changing the cable carrying the information. This is no longer true: now you don’t have to rewire!
Wiring operations are binding. In fact, depending on your cabling infrastructure, deploying new fibers can be complex and expensive. An audit of your existing infrastructure may reveal a tedious deployment, damaged cable passages and/or ducts, which could require civil engineering. Even without these constraints, the cost of deploying a new cable can be very high - not to mention the inconvenience and considerable impact it would have on your business.
It is true that multimode fibers are affected by modal dispersion, which limits the throughput carried over a given distance. However, there is now a technology that can overcome these limitations. It is therefore possible to conserve a multimode infrastructure while simultaneously meeting the ever-increasing demand for higher throughput on a local network.
Does your fiber optic network require higher bandwidth? Are there any potential constraints related to fiber deployment, such as project duration, inconvenience or cost? Take a few minutes and ask yourself the few questions in the flowchart below and you will find that most of your answers will point you towards the innovative, alternative AROONA solution.
