Network Design

Plan to Ensure a Strong Network

Network design is more than simply deciding on a topology: designers need to understand how fiber-optic systems work, their capabilities, and codes and regulations, as well as the customer’s needs for data transmission, distance, scalability, and logistics. One of the most important aspects of a solid design is the optical power budget. This is the ratio of minimum output signal power to the minimum acceptable receiving power to ensure a clean signal. This is closely related to the loss budget, which is the estimated loss in signal strength due to factors such as splices, attenuation, distance to be traveled, connections, dependability of the power supply, and environmental factors.

The power budget must be robust enough to accommodate the loss budget, with enough signal strength to produce dependable data  transmission. If one of these budget estimates is inaccurate, it can be very costly, both in terms of money and network strength.

At XKL, we have a comprehensive understanding of how fiber-optic networking happens, and what it takes to build a robust fiber-optic networking system. Let us help you design the network that best meets your needs.

Networking without Complexity

Enterprise networks are complex and are becoming more so with every new technology advance and approach. To build a strong structure, networks must adhere to key principles. At XKL led by Len Bosack, we have a simple philosophy: don’t add complexity where it is not absolutely needed.
