Cabling in high-performance data centers is a real challenge! Rosenberger’s whitepaper focuses on the topics of spine-leaf architecture, overlay networks and spine-leaf fiber optic cabling.
Single Pair Ethernet is taking us toward the IoT goal of Industry 4.0 connectivity in the automation world. Using SPE, endpoint data can be delivered from physical devices to data centres in a super fast and reliable way.
Data center owners have been preparing to enable the next major leap in 5G application technology and low latency networking – the dispersion to the edge. This White Paper examines some of the areas to watch as data centers migrate closer to end users: edge data centers, smart buildings, entertainment & gaming VR, public safety & healthcare, VR, and digital twins.
This article represents the best IoT sensors that can extend the functionalities of an IoT infrastructure and add sustainable development.
In this article we look at what optical transceivers are, what they are used for and the different types of transceiver formats.
Total shipments of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) data center switch ports increased more than 20% during the full year of 2020, according to a recent report from Crehan Research Inc.
This robust increase, combined with a continuing decline in 10GbE shipments, resulted in 100GbE surpassing 10GbE to become the most widely deployed data center Ethernet switch connection speed, finds the researcher.
To address the soaring energy consumption for Ethernet, data centers and 5G, HyperLight has designed an integrated electro-optic modulator capable of achieving sub-volt modulators with a 3-dB bandwidth > 100 GHz, a previously impossible voltage-bandwidth achievement. The broadband electro-optic PIC could lead to orders of magnitude energy consumption reduction for next generation optical networking.
Multicore fibers (MCFs), which have multiple cores aligned in one cylindrical cladding, are a promising optical fiber design that dramatically enhances the number of optical channels per cross-sectional area. The Mosquito method is one way to fabricate single-mode polymer optical waveguides with multiple cores while maintaining an identical mode-field diameter among them. The technique forms circular cores in polymer waveguides using a commercially available microdispenser and multi-axis syringe scanning robot.
With the advent of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE), systems that formerly used RS-485 serial communications can be upgraded with little change to the media and brought into the broader Ethernet network. In addition, Single Pair Ethernet brings the added benefit of remote powering of devices using SPoE (Single Pair Power over Ethernet), a standard like the familiar PoE (Power over Ethernet).
In August 2019, this was the question the University of Notre Dame faced. The university needed to upgrade their fiber backbone to support cameras, remote kits and other related gear required to create the sports broadcasts for a fast-approaching launch on ESPN’s ACC Network. A few of Notre Dame’s athletic venues had previously been upgraded, primarily football and basketball. Several of the other collegiate sports venues and setups would be addressed in this project including baseball, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming, track and field, and volleyball.
This article explores several of the key products and actions the University of Notre Dame implemented in their recent fiber-optic network upgrade and expansion to address the coming demands. The university faced three primary concerns: space, quality, and costs.
