An article, entitled, "Fiber cabling keeps up with zettabyte era", by author, Khoo Boo Leong, appeared in the Tuesday, October 10, edition of NetworksAsia.com. The article describes that, "increased migration of applications and workloads to cloud architectures and the surge in number of devices connected to cloud or IP networks are generating unprecedented volume, velocity and variety of data flowing through data centers."
Khoo indicates, "According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index forecast, global IP traffic will nearly triple from 2016 to 2021." He continues: "Last year, the annual global IP traffic surpassed 1 zettabyte (ZB) or one billion terabytes. This will hit 3.3 ZB per year by 2021, of which 82% will be video traffic. Cloud traffic, meanwhile, is expected to rise 3.7-fold, up from 3.9 ZB per year in 2015 to 14.1 ZB per year by 2020. By then, 92% of workloads will be processed by cloud data centers with only 8% processed by traditional data centers."
The article's thesis is that FIBER OPTIC CABLING is the "most efficient way for moving large volumes of data" in data centers, for all services, media and to all end-points. In the article, Khoo details the following pillars of value in Fiber Optic Cabling to meet the challenges of rapid rates of "data traffic growth in the zettabyte era"
--> More data at faster rates
--> Parallel optics
--> Matching fiber
