White Paper: “Future Proof” Your Fiber Optic Installations with Better Cleaning

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.

OLAN securely positioned in DoD Modernization Plan

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.

Quiet Light for Future Data Centers

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.

Industrial focus: Deploying fiber-optic physical infrastructure within CPwE architectures

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.”
