Fluke Networks, Hirose and Harting have released an adapter supporting the ix Industrial connector for Fluke’s DSX CableAnalyzer family of network cabling certification tools. The ix Industrial is a rugged Ethernet connector for harsh environments, based on IEC 61076-3-124 standard with a 70% smaller size than the traditional 8-pin modular (“RJ-45”) connector. The new adapter allows the DSX Series to connect to cabling systems employing the ix Industrial connector for the purposes of pre-startup verification and troubleshooting.
The Ethernet Alliance has revealed outcomes from its latest High Speed Networking (HSN) Plugfest, which took place in April at the UNH Interoperability Lab. The Plugfest highlighted the key role multivendor interoperability plays in Ethernet’s continued success, with pass rates greater than 97%, consistent improvement over past events. Equipment capability ranged from 25 Gb/s to 400 Gb/s. 13 companies participated.
The appeal of 400G Ethernet is clear: Bandwidth demand continues to grow fueled by new AI/ML applications, faster CPUs, serverless compute and high-speed distributed flash storage. Upgrading datac enters from 100G to 400G provides the simplest, lowest power and most cost-effective way to continue to scale network performance. Join Corning for a detailed look at what’s involved in upgrading your physical #datacenter infrastructure to #400G. This webinar will cover how to choose the optics, cable, and fiber-plant options to best suit your applications.
Fluke’s CableIQ Qualification Tester helps you determine whether the cable you’re using will work properly and provide the bandwidth needed for your application, troubleshooting and qualifying Ethernet cabling speed (10/100/1000 VoIP).
