About this Event

Field of Dreams: Greenfield Data Centers


This course will cover current and forecasted markets for transceiver data rates in network design along with the cost components. How big is my data center? To which data rate do I plan to migrate? What data rate do I need now? These and other relevant questions will be answered during this course.

This presentation was originally delivered as part of the December 2021 BICSI vICT Forum.
