Prysmian Group and Panduit Join Forces to Launch White Paper Series for CORD Deployments

Prysmian Group and Panduit have developed a three-part White Paper series to introduce and support CORD deployments. The series describes the value of CORD, reviews the development of CORD through ONF, and explores the market drivers that require CORD and a few of the applications that decreased latency in the network that the CORD initiative can provide. It also features discussion on some of the physical infrastructure considerations involved in CORD, the products that are required to have a successful CORD physical infrastructure solution and how to efficiently install and utilize these products.

Webinar: Assessing Smart Buildings With SPIRE: Connectivity, Cybersecurity, and Safety

Get a closer look at SPIRE, the industry’s first holistic smart buildings assessment and rating program. This 2-part webinar series will educate viewers on the six categories of assessment criteria and measurements. Part 1 will dive into Connectivity, Cybersecurity, and Life & Property Safety. Panelists will share how SPIRE criteria were developed and how the program measures performance and provides building owners and managers with the information they need to drive more effective technology investment strategies.

Connectivity is the common thread that ties together operational technologies and enables smart building applications. The need for more connected devices also increases the risk for cyberattacks that need to be identified and addressed. Additionally, in the wake of a global pandemic, owners and managers are exploring how smart technologies support safer indoor environments for tenants and visitors.
With competing priorities for building owners, it has never been more critical for them to have a tool that helps break down silos and elevate strategies to achieve business goals.

COMO LOS CONECTORES INFLUENCIAN EN LA CONFIABILIDAD DE UNA RED DE FIBRA ÓPTICA

Este webinar cubre la teoría básica de la transmisión de fibra óptica, las opciones de conectores, su inspección y mantenimiento. También cubre las pruebas de confiabilidad de los cables, su importancia y qué significa para la implementación de la red.
Al inspeccionar los conectores de fibra óptica, se encuentran que numerosos proveedores de conectores y cables que ofrecen muchas opciones. Un hecho relevante es que los usuarios finales han descubierto, en los últimos años, que “no todos los conectores son iguales. La calidad, confiabilidad y rendimiento de los componentes ópticos y los productos de ensamblaje de cables se aseguran seleccionando los mejores componentes desde su terminación y pulido, utilizando las mejores prácticas y equipos. El producto final debe cumplir o superar los requisitos de todas las especificaciones relevantes de la industria, como las normas GR-326 y GR-1435 reconocidas internacionalmente.
How Connectors Influence Fiber Optics Network Reliability
This webinar covers basic fiber optic transmission theory, connectors options, inspection and maintenance. It also covers assemblies’ reliability testing, why it is important, and what it means for network deployment.
When looking at fiber optic connectors, one will find numerous connector and cable suppliers offering many options. One key fact that end users have discovered in recent years is that ‘not all connectors are created equal’. The quality, reliability, and performance of optical components and cable assembly products are assured by selecting the best components and by terminating and polishing it using the best practices and equipment. The final product must meet or exceed the requirements of all relevant industry specifications, such as the internationally recognized GR-326 and GR-1435 standards.

Edge Computing vs Fog Computing: What’s the Difference?

Edge computing and fog computing allow processing data within a local network rather than sending it to the cloud, which decreases latency and increases security. The main difference between the two is processing location. With edge computing, data processing typically occurs directly on a sensor-equipped product that collects the information or a gateway device physically close to those sensors. Fog computing moves edge computing activities to local area network (LAN) hardware or processors connected to it. These may be physically farther from the data-capturing sensors compared to edge computing.

OFS improves Rollable Ribbon fiber-optic microcables for metro networks

OFS announced an expansion of its microcable product line with the introduction of its RollR200 Central Core (CC) Rollable Ribbon Microcable at ISE EXPO 2021. The RollR200 CC Rollable Ribbon Microcable features 432 optical fibers in a gel-free central core design optimized for microduct installations. This latest-generation cabling solution can help take metro networks to the next level with increased fiber density, enhanced performance, and speed of deployment.Read the full article at: http://www.cablinginstall.com

Why Edge Computing and why now? –

most IT departments have still only been managing IT infrastructure consisting of thousands of end points on their network. IoT (Internet of Things) devices and smart phones changed all that. Now, there are literally billions of devices that want to process instructions, collect data and communicate with the centre in real-time.
