Blog – Why Use Splice On Connectors? – Fiber Instrument Sales

Splice on connectors were developed to address the cable management and space considerations of connectorized pigtails. Instead of a long pigtail, the body of the SOC contains a short fiber stub (essentially a micro pigtail) to which the field fiber can be fused. Because the splice protection sleeve is contained within the connector assembly underneath the boot, there is no need for a splice tray, splice chips or splice cabinet.

Webinar: Deploying 400G Ethernet: Optics, cable-plant and data

The appeal of 400G Ethernet is clear: Bandwidth demand continues to grow fueled by new AI/ML applications, faster CPUs, serverless compute and high-speed distributed flash storage. Upgrading datac enters from 100G to 400G provides the simplest, lowest power and most cost-effective way to continue to scale network performance. Join Corning for a detailed look at what’s involved in upgrading your physical #datacenter infrastructure to #400G. This webinar will cover how to choose the optics, cable, and fiber-plant options to best suit your applications.

Blog – Network Security: It’s Time to Consider Passive Optical LAN

Deploying a POL can help make your network more secure.  Here’s why. Fiber optic cabling is more secure than copper cabling. Centralized intelligence and management is accessible only at the OLT, locked in the main data center. It’s easy to implement tight network access control. ONTs do not store user or network information. And, ONTs have no local management access.
 

CenturyLink reveals edge network initiative, begins with edge compute services

CenturyLink plans to spend several hundreds of millions of dollars to enhance its edge networks to support edge compute services. The initiative initially will see the creation of more than 100 edge compute locations across the U.S., which CenturyLink will use to deliver hybrid cloud and managed services. The service provider says it will be able to deliver these services via the integration of high-performance, low-latency networking with major cloud service provider platforms in customized configurations.

Hybrid Cloud: Best or Worst of Both Worlds?

Vendors offering pure-cloud solutions believe that hybrid cloud only delays the inevitable full migration to the cloud, while vendors offering hybrid solutions (generally those with legacy premises-based systems) claim that it offers benefits that pure-cloud solutions can’t provide. Is hybrid cloud the best or the worst of both worlds? The answer is, “It depends.”
