Sometimes…It’s the Cable

Sometimes, when there are problems in the field, it’s just bad cable. We’re talking about cable that is bad, off the spool before the installer has even had a chance to touch it. This is not a common occurrence, but it’s something we’re prepared for and you should be, too. The vast majority of the time, it’s because someone cut corners and went for the budget special from some unknown manufacturer, but even reputable manufacturers have slipped up. Here’s an example that came into out Technical Assistance Center (TAC) just last month.

Researchers propose solutions for networking lag in massive IoT devices

The internet of things (IoT) widely spans from the smart speakers and Wi-Fi-connected home appliances to manufacturing machines that use connected sensors to time tasks on an assembly line, warehouses that rely on automation to manage inventory, and surgeons who can perform extremely precise surgeries with robots. But for these applications, timing is everything: a lagging connection could have disastrous consequences.

OM5 Fiber Application of SWDM

OM5 was chosen to be the new standard for the wideband multimode fiber in the upcoming 3rd edition of the ISO/IEC 11801. The acceptance of this standard is a milestone for the fiber cabling performance category because it extends the benefits of this revolutionary multimode fiber within connected buildings and data centers worldwide. Compared with OM3 and OM4, which are suitable for transmission in the range of 850nm wavelength, the new optical cabling class OM5 can operate within a range of 850nm to 950nm, thus increasing the performance and the quality of connectivity in your data center.

The global MPO Fiber Optic Connector market will grow by US$ 5 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 9.8% 

The global MPO Fiber Optic Connector market will grow by US$ 5 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 9.8% in the given forecast period driven by the rapidly increasing demand for a high bandwidth, among end users. The increasing adoption of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, and the growing adoption of 4G LTE network platforms provide numerous opportunities for growth.
 

Fan-out Technology in 40G Data Center

Fan-out(breakout of a harness) cabling Technology is widely deployed in 40G data centers which are in need of high data rate and higher port density. Fan-out technology is just like the water pipeline in a building. Water is transferred from the main trunk pipeline, and then it fans out to several pipelines that have small diameters to pump it to every house.

Podcast: 5G will come with abundant opportunities — and some caveats

In this podcast, TIA’s CEO David Stehlin, shares insights on how 5G promises to transform our lives and our economy by offering expanded network connectivity, speed, and capacity. Insights include: How the advent of 5G will change current network setups; Why 5G’s digital transformation is emerging at this time, and what is needed to ensure its success; the risks to the global supply chain as new technologies are added to networks; and how businesses can take steps to ensure a secure supply chain.
