The Data Center Summit will take place November 1 and 2, with sessions covering data center cabling, cooling, artificial intelligence, and other driving forces.
AFL’s new gel-free, dry buffer tube technology makes installation cost-friendly and simple as there is no support or messenger wire. The cable features a specialized water-blocking binder that absorbs any moisture around the cable. This makes the technology not only time saving, but more convenient and efficient to access the fibers as there’s no need for gel cleanup.
Find out why organizations might have a hard time realizing energy savings and energy efficiency as they weigh wired vs. wireless network connectivity. Read the full article at: http://www.techtarget.com
All cable suppliers say that if you want a long-term warranty on your installation, #certification is required. There are other benefits for you as the installer, too: protection in case of disputes, quality control, even your reputation among your customers and the competition. Let’s look at the value of certification for your projects in different situations.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at some approaches data centers can take to handle the transition from their legacy fiber configurations to newer designs that will place them on a path to 1.6T and beyond, or to those next-generation applications, for their capacity needs.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology allows electrical power for lighting, HVAC and security systems to flow over an Ethernet cable rather than standard electrical wiring. #PoE simplifies cabling because only one cable is needed to provide electrical power and other applications to devices in a local area network (LAN) system.
As the demand for broadband continues to surge, it is crucial to explore ways of improving the efficiency of broadband access rollouts while effectively meeting post-pandemic needs.
Now available on demand. This one hour webinar covers multifiber connectivity with a specific focus on data center networks. Jennifer Cline (US Conec) will address VSS Multi-Fiber Connectivity; Ken Hall (CommScope) will present on Designing a Dynamic Data Center Fiber-optic Network; and Jim Davis (Fluke Networks) will discuss Testing Tools & Techniques for Multi-Fiber Cabling Systems.
We currently find ourselves in a period of unprecedented demand for network infrastructure. The rapid adoption of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics and the internet of things (IoT), have further heightened this trend. As the digitization and virtualization of business and society continues, more and more demands are placed on the data center because of the immense amount of potential it holds. For data center companies to realize this potential, they must operate more efficiently. To operate more efficiently, the industry must undergo a transformation—a digital transformation, that is.
No longer is funding the main constraint to deploying digital infrastructure. A constrained labor market, challenges in the supply chain, lack of real-time visibility into project execution, difficulty in auditing daily project results, lack of data integrity and more are all roadblocks to digitizing a network as each results in network inefficiencies and costs.
The pandemic’s massive, unplanned experiment proved that only those with high-speed internet could really participate in our society as it works today. It’s as critical as electricity.
The 80% of Americans who don’t have access to fiber broadband got left behind. It’s not OK to let that digital divide persist, to accept having a “less than” population.
