Forecast Bandwidth Needs for the Future
Staging bandwidth demand growth is just smart business. As data consumption increases 1.5 times year over year, the question is not if you will need more capacity, but when. The shrewd businessperson asks, “Why offer capacity until demand is there? Furthermore, why take up half a rack of space for a chassis-based card cage if you can use that rack space now?” XKL products are known for their exceptional reliability, with an average lifespan of nine years. During this long lifespan, a lot of technological changes can happen, so the design must be forward-thinking and well-engineered. The industry is experiencing a huge data explosion, and forecasting the appetite for more data is difficult, as technology is constantly evolving. XKL’s flexible line of products help you keep up with the ever-changing data needs of your networks
100Gbps per second may sound like a great deal of bandwidth capacity; 10Gps probably sounds like quite a bit of data. However, take a moment to consider this scenario: a manufacturing facility with 30-50,000 connected devices with monitoring sensors, all producing data, and all of them needing to send that data to a central location to be processed and analyzed. To achieve such a goal, proper bandwidth must be in place to make sure the sheer amount of connected devices doesn’t result in dropped packets. Data-driven analytics not only requires innovative computing, it also requires the movement of a great deal of data. Having the right structure in place to take advantage of data growth is a cornerstone to successfully managing that growth.
“We are very pleased with XKL’s 10GE equipment. The interface is simple to use, and the systems are reliable and easy to manage, they just work. We monitor the systems 24/7, of course, but problems do not arise, and it can be easy to forget that the XKL equipment is there. Since we are at the heart of Japan’s Internet backbone, it is very important to us that we are always available, not only for our customers but for Japan as well.”
“We are pleased to partner with XKL to establish this connectivity”, says Ron Sterbenz, Senior Vice President for Product & Marketing for Telx. “And are looking forward to working with them as we expand our portfolio of connection services from within a site to between key sites. Providers are continually seeking higher bandwidth and lower latency to both distribute cloud and SaaS based services as well as enterprises who choose to consume them. The demand for 10G/100G continues to grow across our footprint and to thousands of connected buildings by our network partners.”
