There are numerous efforts to take Ethernet to the edge devices but network fragmentation has resulted in multiple communication networks coexisting in building automation – heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) applications use Modbus, access control uses BACnet, lighting uses LonWorks and fire safety uses Ethernet. Single Pair Ethernet offers a simplified solution that could support all these devices and offer direct accessibility for the control system, status updates, predictive maintenance, standardized hardware and interoperability across various systems.
New Tech Tuesdays — Single-Pair Ethernet Networking Proves Less Is More
Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) is a case where less is more: an Ethernet connection with one pair of streamlined wires rather than two or four pairs. This means power and data can digitally […]
Is IO-Link with Single Pair Ethernet the Future?
20 meters. That is the maximum distance between an IO-Link master port and an IO-Link device using a standard prox cable. By using SPE, we gain the Ethernet cable length advantage. So, instead of being limited to 20 meters, your IO-Link cabling could stretch to 100 meters! Imagine the opportunities that opens in industrial applications. It is possible that even longer runs will be achievable.
White Paper: Challenges for cabling in high-performance data centers
Cabling in high-performance data centers is a real challenge! Rosenberger’s whitepaper focuses on the topics of spine-leaf architecture, overlay networks and spine-leaf fiber optic cabling.
An engineer’s guide to single-pair Ethernet
Single Pair Ethernet is taking us toward the IoT goal of Industry 4.0 connectivity in the automation world. Using SPE, endpoint data can be delivered from physical devices to data centres in a super fast and reliable way.
Data Centers: Foundational to Innovation Now and In the Future
Data center owners have been preparing to enable the next major leap in 5G application technology and low latency networking – the dispersion to the edge. This White Paper examines some of the areas to watch as data centers migrate closer to end users: edge data centers, smart buildings, entertainment & gaming VR, public safety & healthcare, VR, and digital twins.
Top 15 Best IoT Sensors To Develop IoT Applications and Solutions
This article represents the best IoT sensors that can extend the functionalities of an IoT infrastructure and add sustainable development.
Common Optical Transceiver Formats
In this article we look at what optical transceivers are, what they are used for and the different types of transceiver formats.
100GbE data center shipments surpass 10GbE for first time: Report
Total shipments of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) data center switch ports increased more than 20% during the full year of 2020, according to a recent report from Crehan Research Inc.
This robust increase, combined with a continuing decline in 10GbE shipments, resulted in 100GbE surpassing 10GbE to become the most widely deployed data center Ethernet switch connection speed, finds the researcher.
HyperLight integrated optical engine pushes Terabit data with lower power consumption
To address the soaring energy consumption for Ethernet, data centers and 5G, HyperLight has designed an integrated electro-optic modulator capable of achieving sub-volt modulators with a 3-dB bandwidth > 100 GHz, a previously impossible voltage-bandwidth achievement. The broadband electro-optic PIC could lead to orders of magnitude energy consumption reduction for next generation optical networking.
