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.
A recent survey of professionals across the information and communications technology (ICT) industry indicates that user organizations have begun to adopt latest-generation technologies like the Internet of Things, and more users plan to do so in the near future. For professionals who design, install, or supply the physical-layer systems that support these technologies, it is essential to understand their bandwidth and power requirements. This webinar will review highlights of the survey, paying specific attention to the anticipated uptake of IoT devices, remote powering via Power over Ethernet, 5G, and end-user organizations’ plans to upgrade their cabling systems’ capabilities.
Do you know which use cases 5G is realistically expected to support by 2025? Or how it will be possible for 5G to deliver on its multifaceted promise by then? Attend this webinar and learn: What 5G is (now) and it will be (by 2025), Which 5G use cases are likely to change our world by 2025 (maybe autonomous vehicles, maybe not…), Which near- and long-term 5G network challenges worry operators the most and why, from specific domains (e.g., radio access) to end-to-end network slicing, and What is needed to ensure that 5G fully delivers by 2025, if not earlier, and what can be done starting today.
Smart buildings are quickly becoming the building blocks of smart cities, providing benefits to both the building owners and tenants. They provide greater energy efficiency, improved use of building resources, and increased productivity of the occupants.
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.
Fiber connectivity is essential for the physical infrastructure in any enterprise or data center network. While it certainly has advantages, there are also challenges that come along with fiber. Contamination is the #1 cause of troubleshooting in fiber networks, so it is critical that anyone working with fiber is aware of and implementing best practices when handling, installing, or testing fiber connections. During this one-hour session, we will take a closer look at fiber connectivity and educate attendees on the impact that contamination has on fiber connections and network performance. We will also provide guidance on best practices and standards that are in place to ensure clean connections.
For decades, fiber optics have been inspected and cleaned to ensure the proper passage of light. While fiber optics inspection and cleaning fiber connectors is not new, it is growing in importance as links with increasingly higher data rates are driving decreasingly small loss budgets. With less tolerance for overall light loss, the attenuation through adapters must be lower than ever before. This can be achieved by properly inspecting and cleaning fiber optic cables when they are installed or while making moves, or changes. During this one-hour session, Jim Davis from Fluke Network will introduce us to the basic requirements to support our applications. Participants will earn one BICSI CEC.
The demands of new and emerging technologies – things like 5G, BIoT and DAS – present both opportunities and challenges for enterprise fiber networks. Until recently, multimode transceivers were orders of magnitude less expensive than their single-mode counterparts, making multimode the fiber of choice for many enterprise network designers. Today, the cost of single-mode transceivers has come down significantly, making the increased bandwidth and longer distances made possible by single-mode fiber much more attractive. This presentation discusses why you may want to include single-mode fiber in your enterprise network.
New devices based on the 802.3bt standard will supply up to 90 watts over four twisted pairs, supporting a new generation of PoE-supported devices. This webinar will give you the background you need to specify, install and troubleshoot these devices, including: How it Works, Cable Bundling Considerations, Field Termination Considerations, Cabling Performance, and Installing and Troubleshooting.
TIA-942 standard for data centers is the world’s most popular data center standard. It’s used by well over 70% of the population [of facilities] around the world. Data center stakeholders have been very concerned about ensuring that their data center was designed, built, and approved as having met those criteria. This webinar illustrates the importance and benefits of Edge Data Center certification as a precursor to 5G deployment.
