OSA | Low loss single-mode polymer optical waveguide with circular cores

Multicore fibers (MCFs), which have multiple cores aligned in one cylindrical cladding, are a promising optical fiber design that dramatically enhances the number of optical channels per cross-sectional area. The Mosquito method is one way to fabricate single-mode polymer optical waveguides with multiple cores while maintaining an identical mode-field diameter among them. The technique forms circular cores in polymer waveguides using a commercially available microdispenser and multi-axis syringe scanning robot.

Single Pair Ethernet in Automation | Ethernet Alliance

With the advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), systems that formerly used RS-485 serial communications can be upgraded with little change to the media and brought into the broader Ethernet network. In addition, Single Pair Ethernet brings the added benefit of remote powering of devices using SPoE (Single Pair Power over Ethernet), a standard like the familiar PoE (Power over Ethernet).

New Single-Pair Ethernet for Condition-Monitoring Applications

New single-pair Ethernet (SPE) physical-layer standards developed by the IEEE are offering new connectivity solutions for communicating asset health insights for condition-monitoring applications. 10BASE-T1L is a new Ethernet physical-layer standard (IEEE 802.3cg-2019) that was approved by the IEEE on November 7, 2019. It will dramatically change the automation industry by significantly improving operational efficiency through seamless Ethernet connectivity to field-level assets.

Webinar: Moving to 400G – and Beyond

Transceivers capable of supporting 400 Gigabit Ethernet for the data center environment are being deployed. Meanwhile, coherent transmission in the form of 400ZR/ZR+ will soon reach the field, with 600-Gbps and 800-Gbps capabilities following suit and the IEEE embarking on new standards efforts. This webcast will review the state of 400G+ technology for both data center and service provider applications and the requirements such technology should meet.

Introduction to Single Pair Ethernet | Industrial Ethernet Book

Single Pair Ethernet is a key development and the infrastructure that will make another level of IIoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity possible. For the reliable establishment of the entire future SPE ecosystem, standards for transmission protocols, cabling and device components are all being jointly developed by a broad coalition of industrial automation and control suppliers.

Ethernet Continues to Thrive in All-Remote Model

The advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) provides businesses with a means to make these important networks part of a cohesive Ethernet-based network, bringing powerful new benefits to the adopters. SPE provides the last link in a chain of communications from the cloud to the network edge, all in a single protocol network. That in itself drives enormous value because now ALL information is available readily, easily transported and stored, unlocking huge data sets to power analytics. The transparency and availability of this information drives better and faster decisions for businesses. leading to higher levels of service for their customers.
