Buyer's Premium 5%. roles and responsibilities to all parties helps ensure everyone understands what's going on and what they're ac- countable for. DESIGN e complex nature of the 400G landscape means the design compo- nent is challenging. Even more chal- lenging is predicting the landscape even just a few years from now. If you properly plan and define, however, designing your program will simply be executional and tactical. Once the organization has ar- rived at the design stage, the next step is to implement the selected plan and ensure everyone involved remains responsible for their part. Although it's a tough task, the hardest and most important work should already be behind you. LOOKING AHEAD Although the future is unpre- dictable, educated decisions can help ensure the best solution for data centers to meet current needs and to scale later on. Implementing the above processes is the best way to start, and as we look to the future, we can expect better tools to help plan. An example of such a tool is a physical-layer cost calculator that captures all the complex, moving parts. It will allow businesses to enter current and future cabling and data center needs and generate a feasible, cost-effective approach to connectiv- ity. Although such a calculator isn't a decision maker for data center managers or business shareholders, it captures the physical-layer compo- nents in a single analysis and serves as a guide that can help eliminate the wrong solutions for a particular data center, as well as narrow the selection to the best candidates for a specific case, thereby prioritizing the planning discussions in addition to saving time and money. e speed of change and the complexity of the design choices continue to escalate. Keeping up with all the latest developments can be difficult for end users. Take advantage of experts and tools that help you de- termine the potential impact of design decisions, because it's your network; knowing how and why to make deci- sions today will help you make better decisions in the future. n About the Author: Mike Connaughton is market-segment manager for Nexans Data Center Solutions.
