As technology advances, IoT may assist in resolving challenges faced by seniors. Data acquired from IoT devices are used to create an individual’s daily story by monitoring their routine, detecting discrepancies, and, if necessary, alerting emergency services. Connected IoT devices in the home boost security; experts predict that by 2017, 50 million wireless consumer health monitoring gadgets will be sold, making the smart home a reality.
Viavi Solutions’ ONT 800G FLEX XPM module now supports QSFP-DD800 testing, accelerating the production of 800G network infrastructure. It is the first lab validation system to offer support for both OSFP800 and QSFP-DD800 modules, enhancing the industry’
most IT departments have still only been managing IT infrastructure consisting of thousands of end points on their network. IoT (Internet of Things) devices and smart phones changed all that. Now, there are literally billions of devices that want to process instructions, collect data and communicate with the centre in real-time.
Edge computing is all about the new value that we can generate from data and accessing more of that data by getting closer to where it’s created.
The use of MPO (Multi-Fiber Push on) Connectors is growing in today’s Wireless networks. 5G is driving this change by requiring more bandwidth and fibers throughout the Mobility network. Traditional Fiber architectures include simplex and/or duplex Fiber connectors, these new MPO connectors present new and unique challenges to installation and maintenance at the Tower. This session will review the emergence of these new connectors, their place in 5G network architecture, new test requirements and challenges presented.
Edge eats data centers – maybe…
The new IEEE Std 802.3bs-2017 standard for 400G and 200G Ethernet continues the rapid development of Ethernet to accommodate the increasing bandwidth demands of cloud data centers. The current 400G specifications cover only fiber optic media, pushing the limits of optical lane speeds and the number of parallel fibers in a link.
IoT has plenty to offer in addressing service challenges, including predictive maintenance, asset tracking, and advanced process automation. But the critical advantage IoT brings to service industries comes from one capability: service tracking.
AFL has unveiled its OFI-BIPMe, an optical fiber identifier technicians can use to determine if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, and the relative core power.
The OFI-BIPMe is a cousin to the previously introduced OFI-BIPM. It offers a lower price point for applications that do not require advanced PON functions such as the capability to detect ONTs.
Pearson Technologies recently updated three Fiber-To-The-Home/Passive Optical Network (FTTH/PON) hands-on training programs. One is an installation program, another a design program, and the third is a combination of design and installation. “Since the principles for design and installation of both FTTH/PON and optical LANs are similar, these programs develop the knowledge, skills and abilities (SKAs) for both,” Pearson Technologies said when announcing the updates.
