Prysmian Group and Panduit Join Forces to Launch White Paper Series for CORD Deployments

Prysmian Group and Panduit have developed a three-part White Paper series to introduce and support CORD deployments. The series describes the value of CORD, reviews the development of CORD through ONF, and explores the market drivers that require CORD and a few of the applications that decreased latency in the network that the CORD initiative can provide. It also features discussion on some of the physical infrastructure considerations involved in CORD, the products that are required to have a successful CORD physical infrastructure solution and how to efficiently install and utilize these products.

Evolution of fiber-optic transmission: A history of performance improvements

The evolution of multimode optical fiber began when Dr. Charles Kao identified the potential for long-distance transmission over glass fiber. In a 1966 paper, he identified the cause of high rate of power loss (attenuation rate) in glass fibers, a significant factor limiting use of fibers for communication. He determined this high rate to be due to impurities in the glass which, if removed, would enable transmission to long distances. This paper marked the start of fiber-optic communications and earned Dr. Kao a Nobel Prize.

The 3 reasons hackers attack operational technology systems in smart buildings

While smart building technologies enable efficient, safe, healthy, and productive environments, they also expand the digital attack surface for cybercrimes that threaten to jeopardize business, endanger lives, and disrupt critical infrastructure. Unfortunately, the risk increases as more information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) systems and devices come online, making cybersecurity a critical issue for smart building owners and operators.
