Learn about the most common misconceptions about building automation solutions and why these myths are preventing optimization. The 3 top myths include: building automation solutions only reduce energy costs, Smart Buildings only benefit owners and employees, and building automation systems leave buildings vulnerable to hackers.
Fog and Edge Computing lie on the peripheries of the cloud. Fog computing focuses on the space of data area between the source and the cloud. Edge computing, on the other hand, centers on where data is collected.
The merging of IoT applications with edge computing will make the required data transfer speed a reality. It is important not to ignore security in the overall structure. The combination of edge, IoT and zero trust via 5G will enable secure, high-performance application scenarios to become a reality, protected from unwanted prying eyes.
The $64,000 question is: Has copper finally outlived its usefulness? The short answer is no. There will continue to be certain low-bandwidth, short-reach applications for smaller data centers where copper’s low price point outweighs its performance limitations. So too, there will likely be a role for CPOs and front-panel-pluggable transceivers.
High speed direct attach cables (DACs) are keeping up with increasing requirements in data centers, ensuring that switch-to-server network interface connections don’t become the weakest link. DACs have the lowest latency of all short-reach connection options. This is due to measurable delays in optical connections that actively change copper signals to optical signals and then back to copper signals.

The latest generation of SPE offers Ethernet data transport rates of 10 Mbps, full duplex. This may not seem like much considering CAT6A can run at speeds up to 10 Gbps full duplex. Yet, in many situations, a 10 Mbps max is more than enough throughput required. Additionally, the 802.3cg Ethernet specification uses the 802.3bu standard for power transport. This is also known as power over data line — or PoDL. The PoDL standard can power compatible devices belonging to 1 of 10 different power classes that range from 0.5 to 50 W of power to the end device. In many cases, 50 W of power is more than any single device would need.
SPE also has a second benefit that will be crucial for some enterprise deployment situations. Instead of a 100-meter distance limitation for both data and power over Ethernet (PoE) that’s common in 4-pair Ethernet standards, SPE supports cable lengths for data and PoDL up to 1 KM in length.
As application areas transition to Ethernet protocols and field devices continue to require increased transmission capacities, single pair Ethernet (SPE) is becoming an attractive option. It delivers fast and gigabit Ethernet combined with power over a simple two-wire interface. In addition, SPE can be used with standard industrial grade housings designed for the harshest environments.

With the Internet of Things (IoT), Ethernet is now making inroads into the sensor layer of smart buildings and factories. Single Pair Ethernet offers a “lean” solution for building cabling, with smaller, lighter cables, high density connections. transition rates up to one kilometer, transmission rates to Gbit/s and remote power supply over cables.
