The new Ethernet standard for 10-Mb/s operation and associated power delivery over a single balanced pair of conductors could be cost-saving boon and ease installation in building automation apps.
IoT Analytics’ Smart Building Adoption Report 2022 highlights key trends including: Data Centers are the smartest type of commercial buildings; incentives and regulations focused on sustainability are pushing smart building initiatives; and vendor transparency and availability are key pain points for adopters of smart building technology.
Everyone embarking on an edge computing journey should know about the powerhouse. Find out what elements you need to form the perfect edge solution….
Conventional computing architectures premised on a centralized data center are getting overwhelmed by the deluge of real-time data. The answer lies in edge computing which processes data almost at the source.
Fieldbus applications have developed over the past decades from simple analog communication to digital communications over serial networks. These serial networks often operate over a single twisted pair. With the increasing scrutiny on security of fieldbus systems and the increasing desire to simplify the data flow from sensor to cloud, the advent of Single Pair Ethernet technology seems both well-timed and well-planned. Single pair cabling with LC-style connectors make sense, adding simplicity and reducing time to work for data transmission to the edge.
There are four areas where SPE generally can match or improve upon fieldbus technology: topology, security, power, and data.
To accommodate modern networks with extreme density, manufacturers of transceivers have developed ways to increase the number of fiber connections in a given footprint. These transceivers require equally dense fiber connectivity.
New construction and retrofit initiatives utilizing smart building technologies are making buildings more efficient, safer, and healthier for employees–all while lowering costs. Given that businesses are focusing on sustainability, it’s not surprising that according to one survey, 79 percent of business respondents cited building energy efficiency as a top sustainability priority
Risk of cyberattacks increases as more internet of things (IoT) components are connected to the internet, and, according to amBX, 57% of IoT devices are susceptible to medium- or high-severity attacks. Facility executives will have to provide new solutions to protect their buildings that do not hamper the seamless, fully connected building experience that users expect.
Prysmian Group and Panduit have developed a three-part White Paper series to introduce and support CORD deployments. The series describes the value of CORD, reviews the development of CORD through ONF, and explores the market drivers that require CORD and a few of the applications that decreased latency in the network that the CORD initiative can provide. It also features discussion on some of the physical infrastructure considerations involved in CORD, the products that are required to have a successful CORD physical infrastructure solution and how to efficiently install and utilize these products.
The evolution of multimode optical fiber began when Dr. Charles Kao identified the potential for long-distance transmission over glass fiber. In a 1966 paper, he identified the cause of high rate of power loss (attenuation rate) in glass fibers, a significant factor limiting use of fibers for communication. He determined this high rate to be due to impurities in the glass which, if removed, would enable transmission to long distances. This paper marked the start of fiber-optic communications and earned Dr. Kao a Nobel Prize.
