As global data traffic grows, added demand is being put on the world’s communication networks. To address those demands, high-speed optical transceivers, flexible and scalable optical transport products, compact connectors and fiber management are all vital capabilities to build high-bandwidth and high-density communication equipment to serve telecom, enterprise and hyperscale data centers.

The Software-Defined Vehicle Is Here — Is Your Network Bandwidth Ready?
The concept of the “software-defined vehicle” is gaining momentum throughout the automotive industry. The way in which drivers and passengers will experience the car of the future is dependent on the software and related services offered by the car manufacturer. This will impact dramatically the architecture of the car as well as the bandwidth of in-vehicle networks (IVNs), which will continue to grow exponentially, as will the complications associated with high data rates.
Early Engagement – A Critical Success Factor in Manufacturing
Whether it’s a connector or a solution, it is important to consider the use case of the final product and ensure you scope manufacturing and testing requirements accordingly. At Molex, we often find that customer requirements are over-specified, and costs are elevated because products are being tested in much more severe environments than they will be used in. This adds cost to testing and reduces the likelihood that the product will survive those tests, thus increasing the end price and not contributing to the reliability of the final application.
