Solution Brief 7: Powering the Edge

Edge Data Centers are typically smaller than a traditional data center. While EDCs often need to adapt to varying conditions based on the location, considerations for the design and construction of the facility and the availability of resources remain the same. An EDC therefore still requires an infrastructure that delivers critical power capacity essential for operations. This White Paper discusses: Supporting Rack Density, Distributing Power, Ensuring Resiliency and Availability, Improving Energy Efficiency, Deploying Proper Power Protection, Monitoring and Managing Power

White Paper: Reducing Channel Insertion Loss in Next-Gen Single-mode Optical Fiber Power Budgets

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.

White Paper: IoT and Edge Computing

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.

White Paper: How the Single-Pair Ethernet Enables a Reliable IIoT Infrastructure

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.

Splicing Efficiency Improvements in Ultra-High Density Fiber Optic Cable

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.
