Clearfield has added Fiber Optic Association-approved Certified Fiber Optic Technician training at the company’s Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, Clearfield College campus, and at remote locations around the country. The goal of this new program is to help its customers train the skilled technicians needed to fully capitalize on the rapidly growing demand for residential and business fiber services, as well as support the rollout of 5G and Fixed Wireless
Global IT infrastructure specialist Siemon reports that it successfully completed a series of educational events across the Middle East to share knowledge and expertise on the latest developments and trends impacting enterprise, intelligent building and data center infrastructure.
Register now for IN101: BICSI Installer 1 Training: https://bit.ly/2vYfds0 This course is designed to provide entry-level installers with the background, knowledge and basic skills needed to function safely and effectively as part of a cabling installation team.
The ability to manage an installed cabling system relies heavily on the extent to which that system is documented. Whether the task is troubleshooting, moves/adds/changes, or any other event that requires a technician to locate and work with cables, accurate and easy-to-understand documentation of the cabling circuits ensures efficiency and eliminates wasted time. In this webinar, experts from Brother Mobile Solutions and Fluke Networks explore best practices and modern technologies that keep cabling systems documented and easy to manage.
This Webinar addresses the factors driving the adoption of SMF in short reach data center applications, duplex vs. MTP options, understanding insertion loss budgets, optimizing your cabling system for density, cable and end face testing tips, and trouble shooting using an OTDR. Great information to make sure you put your SMF project on the right track.
The use of singlemode fiber is on the rise, driven by benefits such as increased distance and bandwidth, the connection to carrier networks and emerging SMF applications in development. With SMF comes more stringent testing requirements, because of the small core size, the need to test at 1310 and 1550 nm, and the proliferation of APC singlemode connectors, which require that the cleaning apparatus be aligned at the same 8-degree angle of the connector
Ideal for #datacenter applications, #AFLHyperscale Wrapping Tube Cable with SpiderWeb Ribbon® Technology provides the smallest cable diameter, lowest weight, and highest-fiber count ribbon cable in the industry.
Clean fiber interconnects are essential to 5G performance. A fiber is only slightly thicker than a human hair, so the smallest speck of dust is detrimental to its signal path. Any contamination found on the core of the fiber – where the signal travels through – can cause back reflection, insertion loss and equipment damage. Causes include fingerprint oils, lint, moisture, exhaust fumes or simply dust.
The introduction of 200µm coated fibers in the market has introduced a paradigm shift in cable and splicing technology. These smaller fibers are readily found in loose fiber cables, and compared to a standard 250µm loose fiber cables, the positives are unmet by any significant negatives from the customer’s viewpoint. The only real disadvantage is that currently most 200µm fiber applications can only be spliced one fiber at a time. The reason for single fiber splicing is, that when looking at the fiber, the difference is minute. The untouched fiber has shrunk by 50µm, and when the coating is stripped away, it is still 125µm glass.
Data center cable management is often considered a problem reserved for network engineering teams, but bad cable design can wreak havoc across your entire enterprise. More organizations are recognizing the importance of […]
