Microchip has introduced a range of industrial-grade Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) devices for IIoT and industrial Operational Technology (OT) networks for low-speed Ethernet edge devices and a simplified cabling infrastructure for latency-sensitive applications.
US Conec barks back at Senko in VSFF connector patent scrap
US Conec filed a response to a Senko Advanced Components suit that alleges US Conec violated SENKO patents on very small form factor (VSFF) fiber-optic connectors denying the allegations and contains allegations that Senko violated US Conec patents. SENKO, in a written statement to Lightwave reaffirmed that it expects to triumph in court. Both companies make VSFF connectors and associated adapters – the CS, SN, and SN-MT connectors in SENKO’s case, and the MMC and MDC connectors in US Conec’s.
The World Runs on Ethernet: Building and Industrial Automation
Applications are moving from older fieldbus-style networks to Ethernet, which is now widely regarded as a key enabling technology for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or “Industry 4.0.”
What is power over Ethernet (PoE)?
Power over Ethernet technology has evolved to be a key part of wireless LAN architectures, IoT and enterprise networks
TIA White Paper: Resilience at the Edge
When planning an Edge Data Center (EDC) deployment, the need to address availability of planned workloads to ensure resiliency is a top priority. The key characteristics of an EDC can be significantly different than those that top the list for larger enterprise or multi-tenant data centers. To help balance the costs and operational aspects of any EDC strategy, this paper outlines a number of critical questions that should be addressed to ensure resiliency at the edge.
5 Ways Smart Buildings Help Create a Greener World
Here are five huge benefits of smart buildings for organizations trying to shift toward an eco-friendlier lifestyle: lower energy consumption, enhanced building efficiency, predictive maintenance, increased productivity, and improved use of resources.
What is a network switch, and how does it work?
Switches connect network segments, providing full-duplex communication, valuable network performance data and efficient use of network bandwidth.
Moving building and industrial systems from fieldbus to Ethernet
As building owners and manufacturers look to the future, the option to reuse infrastructure to evolve existing analog, serial, and legacy communications applications to a unified Ethernet network is exciting and shows promising results
Dell’Oro: Multi-gigabit to comprise only 10% of ports shipped through 2026
According to a new report by Dell’Oro Group, an analyst of the telecommunications, networks, and data center industries, more than $95 billion will be spent on campus switches over the next five years — whereas multi-gigabit switches (2.5/5/10 Gbps) are expected to comprise only about 10 percent of port shipments by 2026.
TIA Issues Edge Data Center Addendum to ANSI/TIA-942-B Data Center Infrastructure Standard.
TIA has released the Edge Data Center Addendum to the ANSI/TIA-942-B data center infrastructure standard which defines requirements for newer “edge” or “micro” data centers, which often come in prefabricated enclosures that are significantly smaller than the more traditional sprawling warehouses. The TIA-942-B-1 addendum is a significant step for the globally deployed standard because, as 5G services expand, new applications are emerging and the exponential growth of connected IoT devices are requiring more of the “intelligence” to be closer to the application end user and their devices. The more local processing of data helps applications to meet their latency and performance requirements as well as reduce the volume of raw data uploaded into the cloud.
