Rosenberger OSI installs OM4 multimode fiber network for German utility TenneT

Rosenberger OSI completed a fiber installation for German utility TenneT, upgrading TenneT’s control room with workstations and training workplaces linked via OM4 multimode fiber. The control room upgrade effort, dubbed “KVM Matrix,” enhances TenneT’s ability to use these control centers to monitor the operating status of its networks and their interaction with its data center.

Modernizing the Data Center Online Summit

Join the conversation during our Modernizing the Data Center online Summit as experts discuss what technologies and trends will shape the #DataCenter in 2020, intelligent network modernization strategies, and more. Spending on enterprise data center infrastructure grew by 13 percent in the last year, according to a report from Synergy Research Group. With a 23 percent growth in cloud-enabled infrastructure, IT leaders must explore avenues outside of traditional, non-cloud infrastructure if they want to future proof their data center. From SD-WAN and Software-Defined Data Centers, join infrastructure experts as they discuss what technologies and trends will shape the Data Center in 2020.

Optical Cabling in the Data Center: Preventing problems through testing

The seamless interconnect of data center facilities is needed to deliver lightning-fast speeds, and yet internet content providers (ICPs) have grown at such a rate there has barely been enough time to create the rigorous testing regiment necessary. Add the rising cost of cabling infrastructure and the array of interoperability protocols to the mix, and the scale of the challenge becomes even more overwhelming.

400G transceivers deliver 32Tbits per fibre

NeoPhotonics Has shipped its first  400G capable ClearLight CFP2-DCO transceivers for end customer trials.The transceivers deliver 32Tbits  per fiber – significantly higher than today’s 200G CFP2-DCO capacity or the emerging 400G CFP2-DCO capacity– by using internal optics that can support 80 channels of 64 Gbaud data at 75 GHz wavelength channel spacing.

Communications needs in manufacturing plants

Manufacturing plants and operations are each unique in their own way. In this article, we will discuss many of the communications opportunities that can equip new and existing buildings with more agile, resilient, and intelligent digital infrastructure. Manufacturing system architects are leveraging wired, wireless, and optical transport supporting robots, machine vision, production line machines, product transport, sensor arrays, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and distributed Internet of Things (with future artificial intelligence management overlays) to increase process intelligence, agility, safety, and reduce defects and operational expenses.
