TIA and UL are working together through TIA’s Smart Buildings Program, to accelerate the development of common framework for smart buildings. The two organizations are collaborating on an online aggregation portal designed to educate and inform stakeholders on the multiple aspects and solutions available for the smart buildings market. The two organizations signed an agreement to share commercial, technical, and standardization insights to further their work in the smart buildings ecosystem. TIA and UL will additionally focus on benchmarking, measurements, assessments, certification, and registration in the areas of connectivity, interoperability, safety, security – both cyber and physical, resiliency and sustainability for buildings.
AFL has added two new fiber-optic cleavers to its portfolio. Featuring Bluetooth technology, the CT52 Fiber Cleaver and CT58 Fiber Cleaver are both designed for use with Fujikura fusion splicing systems. Both models use a Bluetooth connection and smartphone app that helps manage cleaver blade life. With a motorized push-button blade rotation and a thumbwheel for blade height adjustments, blade life is extended. The 16-position blade yields 60,000 cleaves.
Technology providers assert that a digital twin is an enabler of data-driven production, automation and a key component for the transition to Industry 4.0.IoT 51% of companies apply IoT devices to collect data on their equipment health status and 37% say that IoT devices help them enable predictive maintenance.
AFL has launched the FS300-325 Quad OTDR which is designed specifically for contract installers and network operators deploying and maintaining both single-mode and multimode networks, including Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Passive Optical Networks (PONs), Passive Optical LANs (POLANs) and point-to-point networks.
AFL was featured in CIOReview’s June 2019 edition of the 20 Most Promising Technology Solution Providers for Telecom Industry. The list consists of companies that “exhibit competence in delivering solutions for the new era of digital media and communication.”
The State of South Dakota and Venture Communications will bring broadband services via fiber technology to the Rural Hughes County Area in 2019. This 5.8 million-dollar project will reach almost 700 customer locations in Western Hughes County. This area currently has poor or no broadband connectivity. The project will offer services that include ultra-fast internet with speeds up to one Gig — the equivalent of 1,000 Mbps.
The FI-3000 FiberInspector Pro offers the fastest view of the entire MPO end-face to an individual #fiber. The multiple camera design provides an instant Live View with simple touchscreen gestures to move from full trunk to individual endfaces in real time. Automated pass/fail results are available in seconds. The unit stores results on your phone and allows you share them through text messages or email or use the industry-leading LinkWare platform to store complete project reports including copper, fiber loss, OTDR, and endface images.
TIA Issues Call for Interest Structural Standard For Antenna Supporting Structures, Antennas and Small Wind Turbine Support Structures
The TIA TR-14 engineering committee on structural standards for communication and small wind turbine support structures has issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-222-H-1 titled Structural Standard For Antenna Supporting Structures, Antennas and Small Wind Turbine Support Structures- Addendum 1.This will update the amplification forces on antenna supporting structures supported by buildings or other supporting structures as well as provide an update to section 4.9.9 anchor bolt calculation and include miscellaneous minor updates and corrections to some sections of the ANSI/TIA-222-H Standard.
Organizations are maintaining their enterprise data centers largely to house and manage data they consider to be too valuable to place in the cloud or at the edge. This article addresses how to to leverage new technologies and design techniques to improve enterprise performance as the data center becomes the hub to an edge-to-core network.
The eight-position eight-contact connector has become the truly global power interface, thanks to the worldwide adoption of standards-based Power over Ethernet technology. While PoE serves hundreds of millions of outlets and has been a proven technology for well over a decade, deploying PoE is not as simple as plugging in and forgetting about it. Issues such as interoperability, backward compatibility, and cabling-plant capability require consideration and action. This webinar explores several aspects of Power over Ethernet, describing the steps users and technicians can take to ensure a standard-compliant and technically capable system is in place.
