TIA launches series of briefing papers on Edge Data Centers

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.

Open Eye MSA releases 53 Gbps single-mode specification for data centers and White Paper

The Open Eye Consortium has released its 53 Gbps single-mode specification which defines the requirements for analog PAM-4 solutions for 50G SFP, 100G DSFP, 200G QSFP, and 400G QSFP-DD and OSFP single-mode modules. The MSA aims to accelerate the adoption of PAM-4 optical interconnects scaling to 50Gbps, 100Gbps, 200Gbps, and 400Gbps by expanding upon existing standards to enable optical module implementations using less complex, lower cost, lower power, and optimized analog clock and data recovery (CDR) based architectures in addition to existing digital signal processing (DSP) architectures. A whitepaper is available to view and download.

White Paper: The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise

Power over Ethernet has become the new power grid in buildings. With new standards that allow up to 99W to be delivered, PoE has grown up and is ready to power connected devices throughout the office building, school, and hospital. Panduit’s latest ebook, The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise, explores infrastructure considerations and emerging solutions for extending the distance of PoE delivery.

White Paper: “Future Proof” Your Fiber Optic Installations with Better Cleaning

Better cleaning is the answer for modern fiber optic networks but the cleaning product selection process based on cost, not effectiveness. This White Paper suggests a better decision is to define the “best practice” that will “future-proof” each installation so the connectors are perfectly clean first time, every time. Better cleaning will save time and money.
