Viavi Solutions’ ONT 800G FLEX XPM module now supports QSFP-DD800 testing, accelerating the production of 800G network infrastructure. It is the first lab validation system to offer support for both OSFP800 and QSFP-DD800 modules, enhancing the industry’
The use of MPO (Multi-Fiber Push on) Connectors is growing in today’s Wireless networks. 5G is driving this change by requiring more bandwidth and fibers throughout the Mobility network. Traditional Fiber architectures include simplex and/or duplex Fiber connectors, these new MPO connectors present new and unique challenges to installation and maintenance at the Tower. This session will review the emergence of these new connectors, their place in 5G network architecture, new test requirements and challenges presented.
AFL has unveiled its OFI-BIPMe, an optical fiber identifier technicians can use to determine if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, and the relative core power.
The OFI-BIPMe is a cousin to the previously introduced OFI-BIPM. It offers a lower price point for applications that do not require advanced PON functions such as the capability to detect ONTs.
Global network infrastructure specialist The Siemon Company (Watertown, CT) this month announced an expansion of its data center and fiber expertise with the addition of three new industry experts, who combined bring more than 75 years of industry experience to the company.
At the 2021 BICSI Fall Conference (Aug. 22 – 26) in Las Vegas, Legrand unveiled its latest fiber technology advancement, the Infinium acclAIM Fiber Solution platform.
As part of Legrand’s larger fiber offering, the company contends the Infinium accIAIM Fiber interconnect platform “redefines fiber connectivity by replacing pre-terminated cassette-based solutions with direct connections, to deliver the lowest insertion loss available on the market.”
New hybrid cables are enabling fiber to reach deeper into the network, providing additional infrastructure choice for connecting devices that require high bandwidth, power and distance.
Reduce Data Center Power Consumption While Expanding Bandwidth and Fiber Density with Corning’s Fiber-to-the-Chip Connectivity Solution | Corning
As their capacity increases, data centers are running into a major problem: keeping energy costs under control. Corning’s fiber-to-the-chip connectivity solution helps reduce data center power consumption while expanding bandwidth and fiber density.
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.
