Trailblazing network operators including service providers and hyperscale data centers are pushing transmission speeds up to 400 Gbits/sec. While these few users are facing the headwinds that challenge early adopters, they also are paving a path for future network owner/operators, who will benefit from the standards and technical developments that will enable widespread deployment of greater-than-100G speeds. This webcast seminar examines the roadmap to speeds beyond 100G, discussing the options that currently exist and that are emerging for future adopters. The seminar provides an opportunity for users that are pushing 100G speeds today to learn and plan for their next generations of network upgrades.
During the 2019 Cabling Innovators Awards ceremony, the final set of awards presented, the Platinums, have been judged to be superb innovations, characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need, or establishing a new level of performance, efficiency, ease-of-use, and other beneficial qualities. Here the 2019 Cabling Innovators Platinum Award honorees including: AFL, Belden, Cailabs, CommScope, Dura-Line, Cable Ferret, Fluke Networks, Panduit, and the Siemon Company.
Berk-Tek launched two new solutions that extend the network beyond the standard 100-meter distance limitation as part of the company’s uLANTM (utility LAN) Extender Series. EXT-100 is a PoE extender system, allowing data transmission of up to 100 Mbps and PoE up to 30 Watts to be transmitted up to 1,200 feet (365 meters). PowerGIG-OAC is a fully managed hardened switch that comes pre-assembled in a NEMA 4X/IP66 enclosure.
More than half of Industrial Ethernet problems can be traced to cabling. Testing cables when installed can speed the startup process and prevent problems in the future. This webinar co-hosted by Fluke and Panduit reviews twisted pair cabling standards, cabling issues and testers for pre-deployment and troubleshooting.
Panduit received three Cabling Innovation Awards from Cabling Installation & Maintenance. Receiving the platinum award is Panduit’s PoE Extenders that extend Power over Ethernet (and data) beyond the 100-meter channel. Receiving Gold Awards were Lucas Oil Stadium, which uses OmniStream™, Atlona’s AV over IP solution and the Codisa Data Center.
This webinar will address the increasing Increasing capacity needs in local area networks, the bandwidth limitation of multimode fibers and the range of solutions available to increase the bit rates over multimode fibers, including innovative light shaping technology to transform legacy multimode fibers into single-mode fibers.
Research from Mobile Experts breaks down the shift from Carrier DAS to Enterprise DAS systems, and the impact of new platforms such as neutral CBRS infrastructure on the DAS market. Over the next few years there will be key transformations as 5G materializes. The report predicts that while traditional DAS will hold steady in specific large venues, the overall market for in-building wireless (IBW) continues to grow and evolve, incorporating new indoor solutions that can make the transition from LTE to 5G and provide scalable capacity and coverage solutions for the Enterprise DAS market.
Autonomous smart buildings are the strategic chess pieces that form the foundation of our truly smart cities. We need to look at the complete city chessboard and its moving pieces and explore how our buildings fit into the smart city. We need to understand the cities’ climate emergency plan, city data plans, shared cybersecurity infrastructure, etc. We need to understand our next move while adding our buildings to the list of things amassing mobility data and determining how our rapidly evolving smart building data best fit into this movement. This article provides links to other resources and coverage relating to Building automation, BASfacilities management, maintenance, facility, building for facility management professionals from Building Operating Management and Facility Maintenance Decisions Magazines.
From managing critical hydro and electrical systems to handling sensitive voter registration data, the technology that enables modern living should be secured against cyber-attacks. If you’re a state, local, tribal, or territorial (SLTT) government organization looking to get “smart” when it comes to technology, you don’t have to go it alone. There’s a cybersecurity community for U.S. SLTT governments at the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).
