Mission Critical and Panduit commissioned Clear Seas Research to conduct a survey measuring industry awareness and usage of edge computing solutions. 100 experts were asked how they would explain edge computing to someone new in the industry. Responses ranged from vague — “It’s modern and tech savvy,” to precise — “Putting the data near the user,” to eye-opening — “Not 100% sure myself.” Read the full report for more insight regarding the perceived challenges and benefits associated with edge computing as well as who should be involved in the decision-making process when it comes to deploying edge infrastructure and selecting the right vendor.
Singlemode fiber-optic cabling systems, once found almost exclusively in service providers’ long-haul networks or in expansive campuses, are now commonly being used in data center and enterprise networks. How deep has singlemode gotten into these networks, and how much deeper are they likely to go? That’s the topic of this month’s In-Depth discussion.In the data center and the enterprise, long-wavelength transmission supported by singlemode fiber-optic cabling systems serve today’s networking needs and hold promise for tomorrow.

In the midst of edge computing and the growing role of edge data centers, a practice has emerged that frequently goes by its acronym, CORD. CORD stands for central office rearchitected as a data center. In a CORD deployment, a service provider uses an existing facility that has served as a central office. In some cases, these facilities now serve as headends for the service providers’ microwave towers or land lines.
The new HD Flex Zone Raised Floor Enclosure from Panduit is an in-floor enclosure that fits into a single tile. The small foot print maximizes the space in the data center and reduces congestion in racks and cabinets.
Webinar: Considerations When Applying TIA1005-A to the Network Infrastructure in Various Harsh Environments
Designing and deploying according to the TIA-1005-A specification is critical to industrial, harsh and outdoor spaces.Compliant connectivity and cabling can withstand the test of time and outlast their intended useful life cycle of 30+ years. In this webinar Panduit will focus on why it is important to examine this specification and evaluate the connectivity and cabling requirements that support these environments. We will discuss ways in which you can make sound choices when it comes to deploying a future proof network in industrial, harsh, and outdoor environments.
To achieve successful migration to 40 or 100-200-400 Gb, it is important to consider the fiber/transceiver options and cost implications (particularly the cost of managing high volumes of fiber cable on distribution frames and in pathways). During this webinar will show the advantages of a high-performance MM fiber coupled with BiDi transceivers as a cost effective migration option that proves very practical in minimizing fiber distribution element ‘sprawl’ and assuring that cable pathways are manageable.
Power over Ethernet has become the new power grid in buildings. With new standards that allow up to 99W to be delivered, PoE has grown up and is ready to power connected devices throughout the office building, school, and hospital. Panduit’s latest ebook, The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise, explores infrastructure considerations and emerging solutions for extending the distance of PoE delivery.
Panduit’s twisted-pair copper connectors meet the specifications of the IEEE 802.3bt standard for Power over Ethernet published in January 2019. That standard defines a maximum of 90 watts. While the standard itself is recently updated, Panduit’s certification to the higher loads has been in place since August 2016.
Challenges of implementing today’s technology in yesterday’s buildings and look to the future of sustainable smart buildings
The Smart City multi-trillion-dollar market has become an umbrella for a lot of smarts – Smart: Healthcare, Building, Industry, Logistics, Transportation, Agriculture, IoT, and more. Each one of those smarts have a gazillion applications and products that support them. But we need a better way to define the market that will allow us to talk more specifically about the needs and discern appropriate solutions quicker. A decoder ring, if you will.
