AFL Kicks Off Webinar Series

Join AFL for Webinar Series that begins on August 1st. The first of a four-webinar series, From Theory to Troubleshooting—Fiber 101, will cover the basics of a fiber optic network, both point-to-point and FTTx. The theory of light transmission and network performance including loss, reflection and dispersion will be discussed. Basic terminology and units of measurement will be defined. Fundamentals of fiber cable design for utilities as well as commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting concepts will be introduced.

Webinar: Broadband Access Trends

Gigabit broadband remains the gold standard for triple-play service delivery — and fiber to the premises remains the most future-proof method of delivering such services. Join OFS and Lightwave Magazine in this webcast to review the current state of fiber-based gigabit services, describes the options carriers are considering, and provides tips on improving FTTP deployments.

Webinar: 5 Steps to A More Reliable Network

Never before has the enterprise network played a more important role in the success of the business. IoT is extending intelligence to the network edge; evolving structured cabling designs now make it easier to scale effortlessly on demand; and in-building wireless is helping boost worker productivity to new highs. Join CommScope for an important look at the key issues affecting network reliability and steps you can take to create a more resilient network. What new challenges does a more diverse network environment present?

Mixed Mindfulness

When it comes to a cabling infrastructure, not all media and applications are always the same. So for each and every link, it’s important to be aware of what you’re testing—from both a media type and application standpoint. Often customers will determine that they only need Category 5e or Category 6 for some applications and Category 6A for others, or they may realize the need to upgrade some but not all links.

Webinar: Curbing the Cost of Data Center Cooling

Not only are cooling costs for data centers already red hot and rising with energy prices, they are impacted by continual changes in IT equipment and racks. According to ENERGY STAR, the energy required for a data center’s cooling is 10 times greater than that required for other buildings regardless of climate region. This webinar will provide tips on reducing cooling costs in both free-standing data centers and in-building centers.

Webinar: Optical-Fiber and Fiber-Optic Cabling Developments

Fiber is the medium of choice when data is mission-critical. Providers of optical fiber, fiber-optic cable, and fiber-optic connectivity have continuously revised and improved their products to better serve the exacting demands of end-user organizations. This webinar examines several technological advancements that have been made to multimode fiber-based systems and explores connectivity options. It provides detailed information on the fiber, cable, and connectivity types that are available, and describes how these fiber-based components can be incorporated into complete end-to-end systems.

Webinar: Connectivity for the Edge Computing Era

Data centers have been trending from few, highly-centralized mega-facilities to many, distributed data centers populating metros. Edge computing brings high-bandwidth and low latency access to applications closer to users and devices than ever before. As edge computing redefines the future of data centers, it must also redefine the future of network connectivity. This webinar addresses the use cases driving edge computing, the primary connectivity requirements, including data rates and latency, the role of software automation, and more.
