Single Pair Ethernet Live Demonstration

At the BICSI Fall Conference, SenTekse founder Chris DiMinico demonstrated a working Single Pair Ethernet system. DiMinico, whose roots in the structured cabling industry go back to Digital Equipment Corporation, has spent decades leading the development of new networking technologies. With his attention now focused on Single Pair Ethernet, DiMinico demonstrated the technology for us and discussed why it is a practical, cost-effective networking option for several environments.

TE Connectivity to Host Single Pair Ethernet Fundamentals Course

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has partnered with RealPars, the world’s largest online learning platform for cutting-edge industrial technologies, to offer an exclusive course on the fundamentals of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) interconnect technology. The course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of SPE technology and its benefits, as well as an overview of the latest trends, challenges and opportunities in the field. SPE solutions can help reduce complexity and costs and enable operations to go beyond their current capabilities in supporting smart manufacturing

Fiber Polarity Basics

Polarity defines direction of flow, such as the direction of a magnetic field or an electrical current. In fiber optics, polarity is directional; light signals travel through a fiber optic cable from one end to the other. A fiber optic link’s transmit signal (Tx) at end of the cable must match the corresponding receiver (Rx) at the other end.

The Future of Photonics/Optics in Data Centers

The potential of semiconductor photonics can be summed up in four words, More Data, More Quickly. To respond effectively to the ever-increasing demand for data usage around the world, the global technology industry faces several issues. Today, the typical size of a data center is comparable to that of a football field, and some of these facilities demand as much power as a small city. With the increase in demand for these high-speed data centers, it is more important than ever to ensure that data centers are built and maintained in a secure, reliable, and efficient way. Embedded optics at the board module are not new, but a necessary shift toward optical options is sweeping the industry.
