TIA TR-42.12 Engineering Committee on Optical Fibers and Cables issued a Call for Interest on two documents ANSI/TIA-455-191-C and ANSI/TIA-492AAAF.
Global internet of things (IoT) managed services market is set to witness a healthy CAGR of 29.90% in the forecast period of 2019-2026.
Better cleaning is the answer for modern fiber optic networks but the cleaning product selection process based on cost, not effectiveness. This White Paper suggests a better decision is to define the “best practice” that will “future-proof” each installation so the connectors are perfectly clean first time, every time. Better cleaning will save time and money.
Passive Optical Networks is named as a technology offering promise to US DoD in the recently published DoD Digital Modernization Strategy Plan. The DoD’s Digital Modernization Strategy is the cornerstone for advancing our military’s IT infrastructure into the modern battlespace. It provides a roadmap for implementing the national defense strategy effort through the lens of cloud, artificial intelligence, command, control and communications and cybersecurity.
Bringing the speed, high data capacity and low-energy use of light (optics) to advanced internet infrastructure architecture, the FRESCO team aims to solve the data center bottleneck by shortening the distance between optics and electronics through co-integration, while also drastically increasing the efficiency of transmitting extremely high data rates over few fibers using the extreme stability of “quiet light” used at the transmitting and receiving end of the interconnect.
The winners of this year’s Digital Cities Survey from the Center for Digital Government are those making smart investments in technologies from infrastructure and citizen engagement to data storage and cybersecurity.
Most data centers typically use a mixture of direct connect and interconnect cabling. As the name implies, a direct connection runs point-to-point between racks. A data center interconnect routes patch cords to a presentation panel. For large projects, this strategy can become difficult to manage as patch cords tend to become longer and cable pathways grow more congested.
New user requirements and a steady demand for more capacity have created new test challenges across the optical network spectrum. These articles explore some of the more salient challenges as well as solutions, including the benefits of the right monitoring system, strategies for successful multi-fiber connectorization, and evolving data center test requirements.
The deadline for submissions for the 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews is this Friday, November 15. The Lightwave Innovation Reviews recognizes excellence in a product or technology applicable to optical networks. Information on the Reviews, including how to submit an entry, can be found at the Lightwave Innovation Reviews portal.
A recent technical application guide composed by Cisco, Panduit and Rockwell Automation describes how “Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) is the underlying architecture that provides standard network services for control and information disciplines, devices, and equipment found in modern industrial automation and control system (IACS) applications.”
