With deployments of IoT devices and the arrival of 5G fast wireless, placing compute, storage, and analytics close to where data is created is making the case for edge computing.
Networks running on fiber optics are generally state-of-the-art, but even advanced networks can be improved. That means faster speeds and more traffic density. Fortunately, lots of older fiber is capable of upgrading to faster networks including WDM, but it may need testing to ensure it will work, especially if the links are over 20 km and upgrades are to 10 gigabits (Gb) and above.
Viavi introduced multiple new capabilities for its Optical Network Monitoring Solutions family of remote test and monitoring platforms. The company says the new capabilities enable further network intelligence in fiber environments that form the foundation of high-speed core and metro ring networks, as well as access applications in passive optical network (PON), 5G and data center networks.
While large organizations have already embraced structured cabling systems, many SMEs are still working without a dedicated cabling infrastructure in place. The article makes the case for why a structured cabling system for SMEs is equally important as it is for any large organization and conglomerate.
As sporting events restart and stadiums fill again, CommScope
This tutorial will explain what type of optical fiber to choose for your installation as well as all the steps to follow to make the connection between our two switches.
The less room available in cabinets, on racks, and in cages, the greater the occupancy rate and profits for colocation facilities. Consequently, the ability to access a real-time inventory of every asset in a colo — down to the last spare port — and accurately assess available “stock” is a sales team’s dream.
EXFO’s 5GPro Spectrum Analyzer is available on the company’s FTB 5GPro test kit for providing a complete, all-in-one platform used to validate 4G and 5G networks.
Siemon has released a new Fiber Splicing Enclosure (FSE) designed to offer flexibility and support for current and future fiber termination requirements by offering the ability to support fiber densities with a capacity of 1,728 fibers in a 5U footprint. The new enclosure can handle common, incoming high fiber count ribbon fiber cables of 864 and 1728 fibers that are transitioning to lower count cables within the building or data center.
