AThe data center industry is witnessing a rapidly increasing need for bandwidth, accelerating the transition to 400G. AFL’s latest White Paper examines Ethernet speeds and transceivers, and provides a guide to choosing the right fiber optic infrastructure.
The Advantages of Single Pair Ethernet White Paper…
Our evolving needs to process more data, save energy and reduce costs are becoming more important every day. As a result, Data Centers around the world are constantly changing. To address these demanding needs, Legrand has developed the Infinium Quantum™ ultra-low loss single mode solution, which is a pre-terminated passive fiber optic end-to-end link. This solution is comprised of a system of patch cords, cassettes and MTP trunk cables, designed for exceptionally low channel insertion loss – yielding an enormous increase in optical headroom.
With such a vast increase in optical headroom, the rapidly evolving data center of today is provided more flexibility to add devices and length, improved BER, and true future proofing reaching far beyond 400Gbps. Further benefits are realized when the Infinium Quantum Fiber Solution is coupled with reduced power transceivers . This White Paper details how you can reduce channel insertion loss in next-gen single-mode Optical Fiber power budgets with the Infinium Quantum™ System.
For IoT deployments, going to the edge may be the best choice when it comes to helping businesses deploy IoT technology across their network infrastructures. Panduit’s white paper, “Edge Computing: Behind the Scenes of IoT,” explains the difference between the cloud and edge computing and three ways the edge can help IoT technology deployments. It also discusses the following key areas for consideration when deploying edge computing: real-time requirements, environmental conditions, space limitations, and security.
The findings discussed in this report reveal what operators around the world are thinking, doing, and planning in the areas of efficiency, resiliency, workload placement, staffing, and new technology adoption.
In a live webinar with our Ethernet experts Harding will highlight the capabilities of Single Pair Ethernet and show which IIoT applications are made possible by SPE. We talk about how SPE helps the Smart Factory get on its feet and provide examples from the fields of automation, transportation, automotive and robotics.
Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) enables legacy industrial networks and building automation systems to migrate to single Ethernet network technology that delivers power, control and information to edge devices. In this comprehensive report from Panduit, learn how SPE works; uncover network architecture design considerations; understand market forces driving the use of SPE; discover advantages ranging from supporting the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to improved cybersecurity to lower total cost of ownership; and learn how to prepare for the emerging SPE standard.
This White Paper investigates and documents each aspect of the cable joining and the ribbon fiber splicing process of ultra-high density fiber optic cable and identifies improvements in cable preparation, closure preparation, ribbon fiber preparation, and the mass fusion splicing processes achieved since a previous study was published as a technical paper at the 64th IWCS in 2015.1 By taking a systems approach to the overall splicing process, it has been possible to improve efficiencies in the cable joining and splicing process to realize additional system cost savings with this technology.
There’s no denying the growing demand for smarter buildings – regardless of building type or industry vertical. The question becomes: How do building owners, REITs, and developers assess the overall intelligence of a building? Currently, the market lacks holistic assessment criteria to evaluate or rate a building’s intelligence. There are several well-known and respected programs that measure and assess portions of building intelligence, such as its sustainability or connectivity, but for commercial real estate investors, a holistic approach is overdue. In a new position paper, TIA proposes six key categories to address when evaluating and building smarter buildings: Connectivity, Health & Wellbeing, Life & Property Safety, Power & Energy, Cybersecurity and Sustainability.
TIA has released a series of new informational briefing papers from its Edge Data Center Working Group. The papers are a first step towards creating an industry-driven framework for future standards development. Each paper outlines a different focus area for new Edge Data Center implementations including site selection and survivability, to security, thermal management, and operations and maintenance.
