Cabling the Spine-and-Leaf Network Switch Fabric | Optical Communications | Corning

As the size of networks grew during the last decade, we saw a shift from classical 3-tier network architectures to a flatter and wider spine-and-leaf architecture. With its fully meshed connectivity approach, spine-and-leaf architecture provided us the predictable high-speed network performance we were craving and also the reliability within our network switch fabric.
