Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, demonstrated operation of 10BASE-T1L Single-Pair Ethernet (SPE) over 400 meters of TERA® balanced twisted pair copper cabling at the BICSI® Fall Conference in Las Vegas, NV.
Siemon has released a new Fiber Splicing Enclosure (FSE) designed to offer flexibility and support for current and future fiber termination requirements by offering the ability to support fiber densities with a capacity of 1,728 fibers in a 5U footprint. The new enclosure can handle common, incoming high fiber count ribbon fiber cables of 864 and 1728 fibers that are transitioning to lower count cables within the building or data center.
IIoT environments will expose networks to more extreme environmental factors including mechanical forces (e.g., crushing and vibration), ingress of liquids and dust, chemical or climatic issues (e.g., temperature and corrosive solvents), and electromagnetic interference (EMI). While industrial environments and IIoT devices are most often associated with these factors, the proliferation of IoT means that devices communicating via standard commercial Ethernet may also be located in more unforgiving environments than ever before.
Much like a smart phone, intelligent buildings offer ever changing workplace capability and numerous cost saving solutions. Join Intelligent Building experts from The Siemon Company, Axis Communications and Cataly5t as they discuss how to convert buildings to act as operating systems designed for easy deployment of current and future smart building applications. The experts will touch on how versatile intelligent buildings can be.
Siemon’s TERA cabling system supports 10BASE-T1L single-pair Ethernet (SPE), providing an easily-deployed, standards-based infrastructure that simplifies cable management, reduces costs, and enables more efficient use of pathway space. As explained in a new Tech Brief developed by Siemon’s Valerie Maguire, Distinguished Engineer and Chief Editor of the IEEE Std 802.3cg™-2019 10 Mb/s Single-Pair Ethernet project, 10BASE-T1L operation over TERA SPE cabling offers many advantages over traditional/proprietary operational technology for monitoring and controlling simple, low-speed devices in commercial enterprise environments.
Low-voltage cabling infrastructures are becoming more complex than ever. LANs have more connected devices in more locations and data centers are shifting to fully-meshed leaf-spine architectures where every switch is connected to every other switch via redundant pathways. With these complexities come a wider variety of copper and fiber cable and connectivity components and associated racks, cabinets and cable management needed to build reliable, high-performance networks-and that means more extensive and diverse project bills of material (BOMs).
By eliminating the need for splice trays, splice chips and cable slack, Siemon says the OptiFuse connectors reduce material requirements, conserve space within fiber enclosures, and deliver 30% faster installation compared to traditional fiber pigtails.
The Siemon Company, a global provider of innovative network cabling solutions, today announced a new sales partnership with Keating Technologies to drive the continued growth of Siemon’s business in Canada. This national agreement with Keating will allow Siemon to integrate their channel expertise with Siemon’s sales resources to drive additional growth and better serve Canadian customers.
Siemon Company is currently 3D printing faceshields to donate to our local hospitals. PPE is in high demand so others with this capability should consider printing and providing your local medical staff with much needed protective gear.
Siemon’s structured cabling technology — including 10 GbE copper and fiber cabling solutions — has been installed at Rich Products’ new 15-acre UK production facility as a future proofing strategy and to enable a fully automated production process and intelligent building services.
