We explore the vision of an all-wireless inter-rack datacenter fabric. Such a fabric, if realized, can offer operator the ability to dynamically reconfigure the network topology to adapt to future traffic demands while eliminating concerns related to cabling complexity. A key enabler for our vision is the use of free space optical (FSO) technology which, in contrast to traditional wireless/RF technologies, has lower interference footprint, can support longer range, and offers higher bandwidths… CONTINUE READING
