Webinar: Power over Ethernet Updates: Certification, Cabling and Troubleshooting

While Power over Ethernet is a proven technology with more than a decade of usage, most integrators and users report issues ranging from minor to serious with their installations. Adoption of new standards are leading to deployment of high-power devices that will stress systems and cabling further. This webinar will discuss these problems and how to prevent them before installation even starts, and how to troubleshoot those that still show up.

Solution Brief 7: Powering the Edge

Edge Data Centers are typically smaller than a traditional data center. While EDCs often need to adapt to varying conditions based on the location, considerations for the design and construction of the facility and the availability of resources remain the same. An EDC therefore still requires an infrastructure that delivers critical power capacity essential for operations. This White Paper discusses: Supporting Rack Density, Distributing Power, Ensuring Resiliency and Availability, Improving Energy Efficiency, Deploying Proper Power Protection, Monitoring and Managing Power

Webinar — Fieldbus: The Hidden Ethernet Frontier

This webinar will describe a challenge to data accessibility in critical applications including building automation, process automation, and industrial manufacturing. We will show how the roadmap for Ethernet technology toward Single Pair Ethernet helps to address these challenges, and what integrators and end users can do in their project planning today to ensure their systems are future-ready.

Registration

The pandemic has laid bare what rural residents have known for a long time. Rural broadband in many places is lacking. However, help is on the way. Federal and state funding programs are providing much needed assistance for rural fiber builds, and there’s never been a better time for a rural fiber build than now. This webinar will discuss design and deployment for rural networks, reviewing strategies to take fiber to the farmhouse. We’ll review the tradeoffs for various parts of the network build, and discuss concepts that may challenge some pre-conceived notions of how to deploy networks.

TIA Chairman address top ICT issues post Covid

Read this interview with Doug Moore, Chairman of TIA’s Board of Directors and CEO of Fujitsu Network Communications. Moore explores the issues currently facing the ICT industry as the world begins to emerge after more than a year under work-from-home and social distancing advisory orders and discusses the challenges and opportunities lie ahead for our industry.

Mapping the Journey to Smart Building Outcomes and R.O.I.

CRE building owners looking to make their building smarter must connect desired outcomes to how the building currently performs. The buildings in which we live, work and play are fundamentally changing to provide a more connected, safer and smarter surrounding environment. To accomplish this, many organizations are converging IT and OT groups as part of a new strategic approach to managing buildings and the migration of systems and subsystems to operate over IP networks. There are many factors driving new advancements in commercial real estate property technology around the world, but perhaps none loom as large as preparing for the general population to re-emerge from Covid-19 lockdown, more than a year of doing everything “- from home.”

How Fiber-Deep Network Solutions and 5G Can Help the Hospitality Industry Recover Post-COVID | The Signal Network Blog by Corning

Few industries were hit harder by the pandemic than hospitality.Even with the expected economic boom due to pent u p travel demand, the industry will take years to fully recover. But it’s also an opportunity for hospitality to build back better. Simultaneous with the industry’s recovery will be the widespread rollout of fiber-deep and data rich networks like 5G and WIFI6. These networks can support technologies that help hotel guests feel safer post-pandemic, and enable the industry to lay the groundwork for other high-tech services in the future.
