Starting a few years ago at Chicago’s Union Station and then in Baltimore and Washington DC, Amtrak equipped its new headquarters with a future-proof optical, advanced GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) and Digital Electric systems. This gave their newly renovated facility a highly efficient, resilient and cost-effective network that provides a wide range of high bandwidth telecommunications capabilities at gigabit speeds.
II-VI Incorporated’s 25 Gbps Wavelength-Tunable Transceivers for 5G Fronthaul Earn 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews High Score
II‐VI’s 25 Gbps wavelength-tunable transceivers received an Innovation Reviews High Score from Lightwave Magazine. II-VI’s 25 Gbps wavelength-tunable transceivers meet the CPRI 10 standard for 25 Gbps fronthaul links in a standard SFP28 pluggable form factor and over the full industrial temperature range. The transceivers support dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) across the C-band, dramatically increasing transmission capacity per fiber, thus virtually eliminating capacity constraints due to fiber scarcity.
The unique design of this cable rack from Rosenberger means there are no disturbing rack columns when laying cables, because the four vertical cable managers are also the supporting columns.

The future of work is employee-centric and the rise of the smart buildings typify that. Smart buildings leverage big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and intelligent Building Management Systems (iBMS) to assess the physical conditions of the workplace and adjust them to meet employee needs.
Research and analysis by Memoori identifies an increasing focus on occupant-centric workplaces, as businesses look for new ways to attract and motivate workers: the market grew by 30% in two years, 2017-19, and continues to present the kind of growth trajectory that underlines the occupant-centric trend reshaping the sector.
Smart buildings present a set of unique challenges that building managers also have to keep in mind when implementing a solution. Here are a few specific ways connected IoT solutions will continue to drive the growth of smart buildings: creating energy-efficient management solutions; predictive maintenance; and leveraging real-time insights.
Learn how fiber solutions have evolved to meet the needs of telecom providers and installers for the last mile. The flat drop for fiber is being replaced by microducts, coupled with microfibers, pushable fiber, and small form factor terminals; pushable fiber; and cable in conduit alternatives.
