The less room available in cabinets, on racks, and in cages, the greater the occupancy rate and profits for colocation facilities. Consequently, the ability to access a real-time inventory of every asset in a colo — down to the last spare port — and accurately assess available “stock” is a sales team’s dream.
While Power over Ethernet is a proven technology with more than a decade of usage, most integrators and users report issues ranging from minor to serious with their installations. Adoption of new standards are leading to deployment of high-power devices that will stress systems and cabling further. This webinar will discuss these problems and how to prevent them before installation even starts, and how to troubleshoot those that still show up.
Superior Essex has been elected as a corporate board member of the Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), the international not-for-profit industry association dedicated to the advancement of connected home and intelligent building technologies.
EXFO’s 5GPro Spectrum Analyzer is available on the company’s FTB 5GPro test kit for providing a complete, all-in-one platform used to validate 4G and 5G networks.
Siemon has released a new Fiber Splicing Enclosure (FSE) designed to offer flexibility and support for current and future fiber termination requirements by offering the ability to support fiber densities with a capacity of 1,728 fibers in a 5U footprint. The new enclosure can handle common, incoming high fiber count ribbon fiber cables of 864 and 1728 fibers that are transitioning to lower count cables within the building or data center.
Single Pair Ethernet will become a key technology in smart buildings. It is the missing link for connecting devices up to sensor/actuator level by means of a standard Internet protocol (IP). It has the potential to replace existing field bus systems in the Internet of Things (IoT) in buildings or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in smart factories.
The domOS project (Operating System For Smart Services in Buildings) aims to develop and demonstrate technologies for the digitalization of existing buildings to enable smart services related to energy.
Johnson Controls has partnered with DigiCert to enable its OpenBlue digital solutions suite. The DigiCert PKI solution elevates operations within the Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) space to ensure that hardware, software and communication remains trusted throughout the lifecycle of the smart building. This approach brings modern PKI security as well as advanced expertise in managing digital certificates to provide device authentication and identity, data encryption and integrity for each component of the ecosystem.
