Software-Defined LAN and Fiber/Power-Deep Networks Define New Norm and a Better Future

The world of commercial real estate has already embraced the smart building concept, where multiple in-building systems converge and communicate over a single fiber/power infrastructure to optimize operations, sustainability and tenant experience. Now the coronavirus crisis is demanding new and enhanced smart technologies to keep people healthy and productive post-lockdown.

Demystifying 5G

Do you know 5G’s 3 major benefits, 8 technical goals that deliver those benefits, and 4 technology building blocks that meet the technical goals? This article discusses the technology’s enhanced mobile broadband/capacity enhancements, massive IoT/massive connectivity, and low latency/ultra-high reliability and low latency. The proximity of each application to each benefit in the triangle indicates the benefit’s influence on the application.

Rise of the splice machines

With the move to higher and higher bandwidth, there is an industry emphasis on the insertion loss and reflectance performance of optical fiber terminations. While there are still optical fiber termination methods that rely on field polish of the optical fiber at the point of installation, the dominant technology today is the polish of optical fiber connectors in the controlled manufacturing environment. Even connectors that are field installable often have their fiber endface prepared in the controlled and repeatable environment of the factory

Webinar: Corning See the Light® Data Center Virtual Class Series

Join Corning for a complimentary six-part Live Webinar Series on “Staying Connected with the Data Center.” This series aims to provide quality training in the latest applications and solutions in the Data Center world, while also sharing best practices to make better informed decisions on meeting bandwidth requirements both now and in the future. Topics include scaling from 10G to 400G, the technology roadmap for optical transceivers, and what considerations data center infrastructure professionals should keep in mind to enable this evolution.

Webinar: Fiber Deep Networks for Today’s Enterprise: Part 1

How can you deliver a reliable 4th Utility connected experience so you can face the demands of a modern network? In this webinar, Corning discusses how optical network solutions provide a future-ready platform that can help support in-building applications like Wi-Fi, cellular, cameras, A/V, lighting and more. We will also walk through an Intelligent Building case study that used remote powering, software defined networking, cellular and optical network solutions to provide an easy to manage, scalable, and cost-effective common infrastructure that saved more than 25% over traditional copper networks.

Webinar:  Data Center Interconnects

This webinar will cover the different cabling approaches needed to achieve the high density interconnects being installed in data centers today. It will also introduce 200 micron fiber as a path to create even higher density solutions and cover the installation and design impacts one must consider when looking to move to a 200 micron fiber solution.
 

Data Center Webinar Series: Port Breakout

This webinar will provide an overview of port breakout, defined as taking a parallel port and breaking it down to a lower speed port in the cabling (40G- 10G, etc.), and its implications on structured cabling. We will also cover a new trend of certain customers wanting to break out transceiver ports at the transceiver interface and not in the structured cabling. This trend is leading the industry to evaluate new smaller form factor connectors. We will introduce the proposed new connector designs and discuss the applications where they will potentially be used.

Webinar: Installing, Terminating, and Testing High-Density Fiber-Optic Cable

As fiber-optic cabling continues to grow in popularity, it is being installed in more types of environments than ever before. Some of these environments have inherent restrictions on or challenges to routing, installation, termination, and verification practices. While some recommended practices apply across a broad range of applications and environments, other fiber deployments require unique or specialized practices. This webcast looks at fiber deployment in different environments, including an examination of multiple termination styles, proper test procedures, cleaning processes, and inspection techniques.
