This in depth study addresses questions, such as “Is their enough physical space to install the fibers I need?” “Can I install the topology needed and still provide room for future expansion and ensure adequate fiber protection?”
To address these challenges and questions, it is important to examine and consider both how and why an optical fiber ribbon cabling solution should be deployed for new 40Gbs /100Gbs installations and upgrades of existing 1Gbs/10Gbs infrastructures.
