Siemon’s New Interactive Guide Helps Owners and Operators Solve Today’s Data Center Challenges

Siemon has released its new WheelHouse® Interactive Data Center Guide, designed to make it easy for data center owners and operators to identify Siemon solutions for solving common data center challenges. The Guide is a visually appealing, easy-to-use web-based and mobile-friendly platform that guides users through a data center space where they can select from the key challenges facing managed service providers (MSPs) and other owners and operators.

High-Speed Fiber Cable Assemblies for the 5G Era

Active optical cables are key components in the high-speed systems needed to handle the exponential increase in data traffic that will come with 5G.  According to the figure being passed around at DesignCon 2020, only 15% of the 5G infrastructure has been installed so far. That means a tremendous number of transmitters, small cells, antennas, data centers, and devices will be needed — and millions of miles of cable, connecting continents, data centers, service providers, and users.

A la mode: Do multimode fibers still have a place in data centers?

On-premises data centers, hybrid cloud implementations, multi-tenant data centers, and some of the largest hyperscale cloud companies are still using multimode. Even as data rates keep going up, there is still relevance to multimode for low power, short reach applications. People have a misconception that everything service provider- or cloud-based is going to be single-mode only.

Overcoming the challenges of cleaning high-density fiber connections in giant data centers

The higher the fiber count of the cable, the more vulnerable the connectors and end faces are to contamination. All connectors are inherently dirty because of the moving parts like springs, connectors, and latches, all of which generate wear debris. Therefore, to get absolute reliability and uninterrupted service from any UHCF network it is important that all connectors are cleaned and inspected to meet IEC 61300-3-35 standards prior to installation. This helps avoid potential fiber network problems such as insertion loss (weakened signal), back-reflection (signal is diverted back to its source) or a complete system shut down.

Top Data Trends Telecommunication Companies can expect to see in 2020

The shift from simple phone banks to omnichannel contact centers involves the integration of multiple technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and cloud computing. The widespread deployment of 5G networks will also enhance the experience of contact center customers, who increasingly expect answers on demand. These technologies will necessarily increase the need for privacy and security in 2020.

Webinar: Next Generation Data Centers

This webinar looks at the trifecta of transmission speed, fiber-optic media, and management capabilities that make up an essential foundation for next gen data centers. Topics discussed include transmission speeds beyond 100 Gbits/sec that are required to connect data center facilities to one another; the use of singlemode and multimode fiber-optic media; and why a current-generation data center infrastructure management platform is necessary for visibility into, and management of, next-generation data centers.

Gathering Clouds to Unleash a Flood of Data: How will Data Centers Cope?

Increasingly, applications at the network edge—Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, machine-to-machine communications and the like—are generating tremendous amounts of data. Many such applications demand ultra-reliable low-latency (mid, single-digit millisecond) performance. The challenges of coping with this growing flood of data—to and from the edge—are keeping data center managers awake at night. Here’s what we know.

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.

The data storage industry’s 5 hottest trends in 2020

The Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, 5G and the rise of the edge have been catalysts for the growth of opportunities to derive new data-driven business value. The five hottest trends include: mass capacity storage devices deployed in the public cloud; open architectures will continue to be in demand; data security and protection will become even more important; and innovation and collaboration will continue to drive the trend toward better connectivity.

Data Centers in a 5G Era

By enabling higher speeds, lower latencies, and more #M2M connections, the arrival of #5G #networking is already sparking a revolution amongst #datacenters. Entire industries are simultaneously planning for a new era of connectivity and bracing themselves for what is set to be one of the most influential roll-outs in technological history. And there’s more to come.
