Bandwidth Capacity Planning

Changing Data Needs Require Scalability

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.
