Fluke Networks has announced testing capabilities to support Anixter’s Utility Grade (UTG) Infrastructure, a new technology platform, assurance program and design approach that redefines the infrastructure layer to support building subsystems, technologies and applications. The new test limits allow users of the DSX CableAnalyzer Series to certify the performance of installed cabling infrastructure to qualify for Anixter’s ten- and twenty-year UTG warranties.
MPO technology and components are widely use in 40/100G network. However, to maintain the correct polarity in MPO systems is not always easy. Fortunately, there are approaches that can facilitate correct MTP/MPO polarity maintenance in serial duplex signals connections and parallel signals connections.
With optical fiber telecommunications firmly entrenched in the global information infrastructure, a key question for the future is how deeply will optical communications penetrate and complement other forms of communication (e.g., wireless access, on-premises networks, interconnects, and satellites).
Southeast Asia has clinched the top spot globally as the mobile economy hot spot, taking over giant economies like China. This is due to the growth in smartphone penetration in this region, which is touted as the gateway to mobile commerce. That said, the lack of robust digital infrastructure is a hurdle both the public and private sectors in Indonesia need to overcome in order to realize this billion-dollar potential. According to Gartner, Indonesia spends lesser in building digital infrastructure compared to its neighbors like Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. In order to reap the full benefits of digital transformation, investing in ICT is key, especially data center and network capabilities as these are backbones to successful implementation of innovative technologies.
The choice for data center media will always be a contentious topic, especially in networking a purpose-built facility like data centers. Building a data center architecture using both fiber and copper or selective use of both depends on a variety of criteria.
The FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) cut the ribbon on the FBI’s new data center in Pocatello, Idaho on 11/18. The new data center provides the FBI and DOJ with140,000 square feet of additional space, accommodating both data center and office space capacity and allows them to consolidate almost 100 data centers throughout the DOJ.
In the world of the data center, PDUs have a dual meaning. One is for an enclosure sitting at the end of a row of server racks that provides power for the row. The other PDU sits inside the individual server rack to fan out power. These rack PDUs are the devices that all IT equipment eventually gets plugged into.
R&M has launched its latest fiber-optic platform, Netscale 72, which offers RFID-based automated port documentation and visual guidance of work orders. The Netscale 72 fiber-optic distribution platform natively supports the two parallel optical cabling types — BASE8 and BASE12. This means that distribution modules for both applications fit into the same drawers of the system. Via the platform, data centers can customize trunk cabling within existing racks and enclosures, simply by changing or adding cassettes.
Most IoT solutions now require a mix of cloud and edge computing. Compared to cloud-only solutions, blended solutions that incorporate edge can alleviate latency, increase scalability, and enhance access to information so that better, faster decisions can be made, and enterprises can become more agile as a result.
