As internet traffic, connected devices and cloud-based services proliferate, there is a corresponding increase in the deployment of optical fiber. This article will highlight the key market segments and technology enablers driving demand and then discuss the ways that optical fiber technology is being deployed to meet the demands for higher bandwidth, low latency networks.
Watch this webinar on demand to learn how SPE can impact future building automation system architectures, simplifying networks, and providing greater access to the building system data that can drive efficiency and provide a more pleasant user experience through building technology.
Join Panduit November 4th from 10am-12pm CST for its first online summit. Things have changed NOW and we need to adapt with our technologies and business processes to be ready for what is NEXT. Topics include Panduit’s perspective of the market – the challenges, opportunities, technologies and solutions that are helping smart businesses succeed; Real-world stories from customers and partners – how they did it and what they learned; and a sneak peek at new Panduit products that will change the game now and beyond
With many North American cabling projects specified to comply with TIA standards, these documents are among the most relevant to all parties involved in cabling-system design, installation, certification or management. This webinar will provide an update on both new and existing standards that are relevant to ICT professionals. Attendees will learn how to identify and understand the elements of a cabling standard that matter most to cabling design, installation & maintenance professionals; standard specifications related to high-density optical fiber cable; and the latest developments in copper cabling standards including single-pair cabling, PoE and cabling for WiFi support.
Learn about the latest Single Pair Ethernet standards being developed along with examples of how SPE Technology is being used in industrial and building automation applications.
Standardization of OT and IT onto a single protocol is critical to driving widespread adoption of digital transformation. Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is viewed as the enabling technology that standardizes industrial control networks and digital buildings onto one Ethernet protocol. SPE provides the ability to operate a single, seamless network from cloud to edge and use new PoEvariants that power end devices over distances longer than traditional ethernet cabling. Join Panduit experts to discuss how SPE can impact future building automation system architectures, simplifying networks and providing greater access to the building system data that can drive efficiency and provide a more pleasant user experience through building technology.
Standardization of OT and IoT onto a single protocol is critical to driving widespread adoption of digital transformation. Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) is an enabling technology for many industries and applications with a special benefit to industrial control networks: providing the ability to operate a single, seamless network from cloud to edge and providing the option to power end devices over distances longer than traditional ethernet cabling. In this webinar, Mike Vermeer will discuss how SPE can impact future cabling deployments. Watch on demand.
Since the TIA ratified the specification for OM5, a wideband multimode optical fiber (WB-MMF), customers that are thinking about upgrading their existing infrastructure, or building out new, are asking a question: Should they deploy OM5 fiber? OM5 is essentially an OM4 fiber that has an additional bandwidth specification at 953nm. Both OM4 and OM5 have bandwidths specified as 4,700MHz•km at 850nm, and OM5 has a bandwidth specification of 2,450MHz•km at 953nm. OM4 does not have a bandwidth specified at 953nm. OM5 was designed to be used with optical modules that employ Shortwave Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM). These new SWDM modules use four wavelengths that span from 850nm through 953nm, to implement 100Gbps links.
For IoT deployments, going to the edge may be the best choice when it comes to helping businesses deploy IoT technology across their network infrastructures. Panduit’s white paper, “Edge Computing: Behind the Scenes of IoT,” explains the difference between the cloud and edge computing and three ways the edge can help IoT technology deployments. It also discusses the following key areas for consideration when deploying edge computing: real-time requirements, environmental conditions, space limitations, and security.
Panduit is pleased to announce the approval of the IEC 63171-1 (Variant 1) Single Pair Ethernet connector style by ISO IEC SC48B, the standards body that helps with international standardization of low voltage connectors. This newly standardized Single Pair Ethernet connector design will be key to supporting the explosion of Ethernet connectivity into edge devices within a broad range of applications including industrial controls, building automation systems and related sub-systems that can take advantage of structured cabling.
