Webinar: Industry Update, Optical Cable and Testing for Data Centers

The demands being placed on our data centers are larger than ever. This is true for all types and sizes of data centers, from the largest Hyperscale, to Private, and even Edge. This webinar will address advancements in Single and Multimode fiber and how they are being used in data centers. This presentation will look at the latest applications and the requirements for fiber to support them. After that, we will look at testing these fibers, calculating a loss budget for current and future applications, and how you can increase confidence in the test results. At the end of this presentation, you will understand how improvements in fiber construction allow communications at multiple wavelengths are helping to reach speeds in excess of 400G as well as what testing will assure that the fiber has been properly installed.

Introducing SPIRE a holistic assessment program for Smart Buildings

Built by TIA and UL, SPIRE is the industry’s first smart building program that holistically measures building technology and performance. Available now, the SPIRE Self-Assessment online tool can evaluate building intelligence based on an expertly curated, objective framework. And coming soon, the SPIRE Verified Assessment and Rating offers a complete smart building evaluation with the opportunity to earn a Smart Building Verified Mark.

Webinar:Delivering Power over Single Pair Ethernet

Single pair Ethernet is coming to a building near you. This webinar will discuss 802.3cg industrial and intelligent building targets, provide an overview of SPE use cases including industrial process control, intelligent building connections, sensors and building controls. Our speakers will then address PoE, PoDL, cable heating considerations, and SPE vs. batteries and wireless. The webinar will wrap up with a discussion on SPE testing

White Paper: Reducing Channel Insertion Loss in Next-Gen Single-mode Optical Fiber Power Budgets

Our evolving needs to process more data, save energy and reduce costs are becoming more important every day. As a result, Data Centers around the world are constantly changing. To address these demanding needs, Legrand has developed the Infinium Quantum™ ultra-low loss single mode solution, which is a pre-terminated passive fiber optic end-to-end link. This solution is comprised of a system of patch cords, cassettes and MTP trunk cables, designed for exceptionally low channel insertion loss – yielding an enormous increase in optical headroom. 

With such a vast increase in optical headroom, the rapidly evolving data center of today is provided more flexibility to add devices and length, improved BER, and true future proofing reaching far beyond 400Gbps. Further benefits are realized when the Infinium Quantum Fiber Solution is coupled with reduced power transceivers . This White Paper details how you can reduce channel insertion loss in next-gen single-mode Optical Fiber power budgets with the Infinium Quantum™ System.

Webinar: Assessing Smart Buildings – Planning Your Future Starts Today

What will your smart building be capable of in 10, 25, or even 50 years? What is driving change today and how will it impact buildings and cities in the future? As we are only in the dawn of the new IOT-age, this discussion will look at the horizon to understand what digital transformation will enable for tenants, owners and investors. With new wireless technologies like 5G and Wi-Fi 6 coming to market and more smart devices to connect and secure every day, our expert panel will discuss what building owners and managers need to plan for ahead of the coming wave of innovative smart technologies.

WebinarAll You Need to Know About Multimode Fiber and Connectivity

Connections have become increasingly important over the past few months as the world has turned to virtual communication to stay connected with schoolmates, colleagues, family, and friends. In connected world, data creation, storage, and access drive the need for increased network speeds.

This webinar will review the need for increased enterprise data center capacity speeds – from selecting the correct optical fiber and connectivity solutions to installation. It will emphasize the benefits of multimode fiber and connectivity, discussing optical fiber and Corning® CleanAdvantage™ Technology basics. We will also discuss what the future looks like for multimode fiber and links as the network continues to grow.
