10G Network Upgrades: 3 Reasons To Choose Copper

When it comes to high speed communication links within data centers or other business networks, demand for 10G Ethernet (10GbE) continues to grow. With plenty of options in existence, including 10G SFP+ direct attach copper cables (DAC), individual SFP+ optical transceivers and 10G copper modules, how is a network operator to choose? In this blog, we give you the top three reasons why 10G copper transceivers could provide the performance upgrade you need in a cost-effective manner.

Siemon Supports Single-Pair Ethernet with TERA® Cabling

Siemon’s TERA cabling system supports 10BASE-T1L single-pair Ethernet (SPE), providing an easily-deployed, standards-based infrastructure that simplifies cable management, reduces costs, and enables more efficient use of pathway space. As explained in a new Tech Brief developed by Siemon’s Valerie Maguire, Distinguished Engineer and Chief Editor of the IEEE Std 802.3cg™-2019 10 Mb/s Single-Pair Ethernet project, 10BASE-T1L operation over TERA SPE cabling offers many advantages over traditional/proprietary operational technology for monitoring and controlling simple, low-speed devices in commercial enterprise environments.

Single-pair ethernet system reduces weight, increases bandwidth for commercial aerospace

TE Connectivity’s new Mini-ETH single pair Ethernet system for commercial aircraft offers substantial weight savings, more bandwidth and simpler installation and maintenance by using proven technologies from other markets. As designers search for greater efficiency onboard aircraft, TE’s new Mini-ETH system offers them up to 73% weight savings in cables and up to 41% weight savings in connectors compared to standard eight-wire cables and rectangular connectors.

White Paper: How the Single-Pair Ethernet Enables a Reliable IIoT Infrastructure

Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) enables legacy industrial networks and building automation systems to migrate to single Ethernet network technology that delivers power, control and information to edge devices. In this comprehensive report from Panduit, learn how SPE works; uncover network architecture design considerations; understand market forces driving the use of SPE; discover advantages ranging from supporting the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to improved cybersecurity to lower total cost of ownership; and learn how to prepare for the emerging SPE standard.

5-port industrial 802.3bt PoE switches target harsh environments

Antaira Technologies’ new LNP-0500G-bt and LNP-0500G-bt-24 switches fulfill the need for low port-count PoE gigabit connectivity in industrial applications. Each unit has five gigabit Ethernet ports that are IEEE 802.3af/at/bt compliant on four of the ports (data and power output maximum 90W/port). The LNP-0500G-bt Ethernet switch is billed as rugged, reliable and geared for applications that require up to 90 watts of PoE power.

5 Tips for an Effective BOM

Low-voltage cabling infrastructures are becoming more complex than ever. LANs have more connected devices in more locations and data centers are shifting to fully-meshed leaf-spine architectures where every switch is connected to every other switch via redundant pathways. With these complexities come a wider variety of copper and fiber cable and connectivity components and associated racks, cabinets and cable management needed to build reliable, high-performance networks-and that means more extensive and diverse project bills of material (BOMs).
