While achieving net zero is a significant challenge, more smart buildings are hitting the milestone. In 2020, the New Building Institute verified 700 net-zero facilities in North America, and it expects the number to increase by as much as 50% every two years. One approach to net zero is with a direct current (DC) power distribution system that incorporates a renewable microgrid with energy storage to generate and deliver enough DC power to support building loads while eliminating the inefficiencies of traditional AC grid power. Incentives and technological advancements can facilitate the adoption of DC power distribution.
Employers have been taking advantage of empty desks and upgrading IT infrastructure to future-proof workplaces with the hope that they will eventually return to full occupancy. Creating a smart office involves equipping […]

Fiber reached more than 1.4 million U.S. commercial buildings and data centers by the end of 2022, according to Vertical Systems Group’s ENS @Fiber research service. However, that number represents only about 28% of total U.S. commercial sites, according to the market research firm.
As service providers and hyperscale providers progress in advancing artificial intelligence, algorithms, 5G networks, and augmented and virtual reality, it is creating a greater demand for data center liquid cooling.
According to the latest research by InsightAce Analytic, the global data center liquid cooling market size was valued at $3.56 billion in 2022, and it is expected to reach $31 billion in 2031, recording a promising CAGR of 27.2% during the forecast period of 2023-2031.
All cable suppliers say that if you want a long-term warranty on your installation, #certification is required. There are other benefits for you as the installer, too: protection in case of disputes, quality control, even your reputation among your customers and the competition. Let’s look at the value of certification for your projects in different situations.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at some approaches data centers can take to handle the transition from their legacy fiber configurations to newer designs that will place them on a path to 1.6T and beyond, or to those next-generation applications, for their capacity needs.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology allows electrical power for lighting, HVAC and security systems to flow over an Ethernet cable rather than standard electrical wiring. #PoE simplifies cabling because only one cable is needed to provide electrical power and other applications to devices in a local area network (LAN) system.
As the demand for broadband continues to surge, it is crucial to explore ways of improving the efficiency of broadband access rollouts while effectively meeting post-pandemic needs.
Widespread IoT adoption creates more entry points into corporate networks, inherently expanding the cyberattack surface. Due to their specialized nature and limited computational ability, IoT devices are highly vulnerable, which hampers the integration of adequate security measures. To help protect networks, TIA published the first-ever global Cybersecurity and Supply Chain Security Standard (SCS 9001), to verify that networks and their supporting hardware and software components and subcomponents meet critical security benchmarks to mitigate the risk of cybersecurity attacks.
