As more cloud service providers and hyperscale data centers migrate to 200 and 400 Gb/s to support 50 and 100 Gb/s servers, active equipment manufacturers have already announced 400 Gb/s switch platforms in response to demand from data center managers. What is involved in creating the right ecosystem for 400 Gb/s Ethernet? What options to data center designers have? This webinar will provide an overview and guidance.
The next generation of wireless – 5G, CBRS, Wi-Fi 6 and BLE – is on the horizon. Increased speeds, low latency, and reduced congestion on mobile networks will revolutionize the way we use an ever-increasing number of IoT devices and design in-building communication infrastructures. 5G and CBRS are technologies providing cellular service, WI-FI 6 is a short-range wireless access technology, and BLE is a wireless personal area network designed especially for short-range communication – all technologies are complementary and will each support different use cases in the built environment. This webinar will provide an overview of the different technologies and discuss how they will work together to provide enhanced mobility, capacity and data rates. First generation use cases in the real estate industry will be presented.
In a perfect world, all network devices would be located within the standard 100-meter run length, But design and budget constraints don’t always allow for that, and there are instances when data transmission does need to exceed 100 meters. Lately, there has been quite a bit of attention surrounding cable products that claim to support data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) to distances far beyond the standard length. Do they merit the attention, and do they represent good network design practices?
A recent survey of professionals across the information and communications technology (ICT) industry indicates that user organizations have begun to adopt latest-generation technologies like the Internet of Things, and more users plan to do so in the near future. This webinar will review highlights of the survey, paying specific attention to the anticipated uptake of IoT devices, remote powering via Power over Ethernet, 5G, and end-user organizations’ plans to upgrade their cabling systems’ capabilities.
This webinar looks at the trifecta of transmission speed, fiber-optic media, and management capabilities that make up an essential foundation for next gen data centers. Topics discussed include transmission speeds beyond 100 Gbits/sec that are required to connect data center facilities to one another; the use of singlemode and multimode fiber-optic media; and why a current-generation data center infrastructure management platform is necessary for visibility into, and management of, next-generation data centers.
Do you know which use cases 5G is realistically expected to support by 2025? Or how it will be possible for 5G to deliver on its multifaceted promise by then? Attend this webinar and learn: What 5G is (now) and it will be (by 2025), Which 5G use cases are likely to change our world by 2025 (maybe autonomous vehicles, maybe not…), Which near- and long-term 5G network challenges worry operators the most and why, from specific domains (e.g., radio access) to end-to-end network slicing, and What is needed to ensure that 5G fully delivers by 2025, if not earlier, and what can be done starting today.
Webinar: Considerations When Applying TIA1005-A to the Network Infrastructure in Various Harsh Environments
Designing and deploying according to the TIA-1005-A specification is critical to industrial, harsh and outdoor spaces.Compliant connectivity and cabling can withstand the test of time and outlast their intended useful life cycle of 30+ years. In this webinar Panduit will focus on why it is important to examine this specification and evaluate the connectivity and cabling requirements that support these environments. We will discuss ways in which you can make sound choices when it comes to deploying a future proof network in industrial, harsh, and outdoor environments.
To achieve successful migration to 40 or 100-200-400 Gb, it is important to consider the fiber/transceiver options and cost implications (particularly the cost of managing high volumes of fiber cable on distribution frames and in pathways). During this webinar will show the advantages of a high-performance MM fiber coupled with BiDi transceivers as a cost effective migration option that proves very practical in minimizing fiber distribution element ‘sprawl’ and assuring that cable pathways are manageable.
New devices based on the 802.3bt standard will supply up to 90 watts over four twisted pairs, supporting a new generation of PoE-supported devices. This webinar will give you the background you need to specify, install and troubleshoot these devices, including: How it Works, Cable Bundling Considerations, Field Termination Considerations, Cabling Performance, and Installing and Troubleshooting.
This webinar will address the unique considerations of edge deployments in nontraditional locations and how to make the most of limited floor space including: How increased demand for power is driving the need to support larger, heavier equipment with new rack designs—and the benefits of intelligent power management down to the rack level and innovative cable management and pathway strategies that can support mission-critical data carried through fiber-optic cable.
