What is the campus network?

What is the campus network?

A campus network is proprietary set of LANs or interconnected LANs that serve an organization.  Typically, it encompasses a set of buildings near one another but can also include multiple site locations over wide areas. These buildings and site a connected by a fiber optic network known as the campus backbone.

The campus backbone connects multiple buildings or sites together to create your local area network.  Environmental and installation challenges require a robust cabling infrastructure to provide a network that is reliable, meets growing bandwidth demands and is quickly deployed.

Considerations in Outside Fiber Optic Cable Design

Considerations in Outside Fiber Optic Cable Design

The major cable families of loose tube, ribbon, and micro loose tube cables provide options throughout your network that, when used strategically, can offer low attenuation, scalability, and increase deployment velocity. As fiber drives deeper into the network and bandwidth demands continue to increase, examining all your cable options will help you create a network that is future ready and resilient.

Creating Building to Building Connections

With forethought and planning, structured cabling infrastructure will be an enabling technology, not a limiting factor, in campus connectivity.

Fiber Design for 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Campus Backbone Applications

Systems Engineers at Corning are routinely asked two questions.  How do I determine the type of fiber needed for my campus backbone?  How do I determine the number of fibers need for my campus backbone?

Find out the answrs by reading this whitepaper.

Campus Network Considerations

Campus Network Considerations

  • Scalability/future deployments - Networks are growing more complex and bandwidth demands are increasing.  There are multiple ways to scale your network for the future either through upgrading to higher transmission speeds or adding more fiber.
  • Installation speed/deployment velocity - Saving time through better cable access and splicing methods can substantially impact installation time across a network deployment.
  • Restoration velocity - Once unplanned network downtime occurs, your top priority is restoring service to the cable, and doing it as quickly as possible in order to minimize the impact on customers.
  • Availability limitations - Fiber designs for high-performance applications may not be available in all cable designs because they may not perform well in some configurations.
