Understanding Fiber Optic Loss Budgets

Support Your Infrastructure

Support Your Infrastructure

Today’s hardware requires faster computing speeds, and that has produced a number of challenges for data center managers. Many data center managers are left  wondering how to build a structured cabling system that supports not only current speeds, but also increased data rates.

While it is possible to design a fiber optic structured cabling infrastructure to support a life cycle of 10 to 15 years, there are several factors to consider throughout the process.


Our free white paper, Fiber Optic Loss Budgets, covers:

  • The fiber optic link loss budget formula
  • Factors for attenuation
  • Connector loss and supportable distances
  • Structured cabling and the TIA-942 standard
  • How to future-proof your cabling
  • Estimating link loss budgets
