Over the past several years, Leviton has polled network professionals about the type of fiber they would install today, and we have seen solid growth in single-mode. In the March 2020 poll of 281 network professionals, more than 60% said they would install single-mode (OS2) today over multimode types, with OM4 coming in second at 28%. This change is largely a result of decreasing cost and recent standards committee activities that continue to promote more single-mode options for higher speeds such as 200 and 400 Gb/s. As this trend continues, the market in general will find single-mode a more enticing option. Let’s take a closer look at reasons behind its rise.
Watch this webinar from Senko’s Tiger Ninomiya on demand and learn about the evolution of fiber optic connectors in data centers.
This on-demand webinar discusses the importance of inspecting and cleaning the connector end-faces, the approval/rejection criteria defined by the standards, as well as methods to maintain clean connectors.
Webinar: Increasing fiber optic port density is a crucial requirement for hyperscale data centers because space is at a premium – yet new traffic creates demands for more fiber ports at a blistering pace. Data center operators often cannot expand floor space in their data centers, so the only answer is to increase port density in the rack.
The future of work has transformed expectations of an office space. From greater flexibility to personalized settings, occupants and visitors alike want to be comfortable, safe and productive. Smart solutions help building owners and operators better meet the demands of their occupants, while providing greater transparency to enhance space utilization and occupant experience.

Smart sensors offer a thorough view of building operations and provide vital insights into how energy is being used. Businesses can learn what devices are using energy, how much, and for how long. But IoT technology can provide more than just information, it can also help business owners manage the devices, like automating lights, adjusting thermostats based on time of day, or reducing energy provided to rooms not in use.
