Leviton’s new LC Unibody fiber connector will enable data center operators and enterprise network managers to better perform in higher density, extended reach environments, with an increasing number of physical connections.
The organizers of OFC 2021 (June 6-11) announced yesterday that the conference will be fully virtual. The technical conference content will be available live and on demand. Trending new topics include the potential impact of quantum communications and machine learning on network operations and how optics may support machine learning and neuromorphic computing.
Innovation and technology has never been more important to the Commercial Real Estate Industry as it recovers from the impact of Covid. This webinar will explore technologies such as: 4G and 5G, IoT, Fiber Optics, CBRS, and other innovations enabling safer and smarter buildings.
Demand for greater capacity for scaling and optimized connectivity for privacy and speed is driving the need for dark fiber.
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) carries great potential to help network operators stay ahead of growing demands for bandwidth. As we continue to split the light into more and more wavelengths, the potential capacity of just a single fiber strand grows dramatically.
High-frequency silicon chips with an ultra-thin polymer cable can build a data transfer system ten times faster than a USB. The new system design is more compact and cost-efficient than traditional copper wire and draws far less power. The new transfer link could dramatically cut energy use at power-hungry data centers. With speeds of 105 gigabits per second, it also could address the bandwidth challenges as we see this megatrend toward more and more data continues.

AFL’s new FUSEConnect MPO splice-on field-installable connector migrates from a mechanical splice protection clamp to a heat protection sleeve, using an on-board splicer heater and eliminating the need for a separate mechanical clamp tool. The new connector helps minimize the complexity involved in the termination of multi-fiber connectors.
The Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) today announced it has strengthened its core staff of marketing and membership leadership to support the association’s growing initiative to advocate for the entire fiber ecosystem and advance fiber-based broadband deployments everywhere. This expanded team of experts will help expand FBA research, build member resources and drive awareness of the impact and superiority of fiber in the broadband network.
Simulations allow engineers and architects to explore design alternatives with a focus on building constraints. They help engineers minimize design times and improve the quality of the final design. The impact of digital twins on smart buildings is particularly pronounced in the area of lighting.
A smart building is a living asset that is utilised by building and facility managers to improve operations. It is connected, using technology to automate processes and control building services including lighting, heating, air conditioning, security, etc. This is achieved through a network of sensors, wired and wireless technology and microchips to collect and aggregate data into a user interface which takes the guess work out of building control and maintenance.
