White Paper: Single Pair Ethernet – The network infrastructure for Industry 4.0

Experts consider Single Pair Ethernet to be the next generation of communication architecture in automation. The concept behind it is essentially an extension of the Ethernet to the sensor, that is wherever “tracks” (in the literal sense) rather than data highways are needed in every inch of space within the plant – it is compact, flexible and offers extensive reach.

White Paper: Smart Building Connectivity

This white paper from CommScope covers how to create an integrated suite of connectivity solutions; without adding layers of complexity; understand where and how key technologies such as PoE, IoT, Wireless, etc. fit.; how to flatten complexity with shared infrastructure; how to wire for the future, not just the present; the ins and outs of adding wireless connectivity.

Understanding Cabling Considerations for PoE to support IoT

PoE standardization and its implications on cabling and efficient power delivery is creating a timely opportunity to power the growing number of IoT devices being added to the cabling infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively. In CommScope’s white paper you’ll learn why PoE adoption is increasing, the applications driving it, how the key technical standards work with it, what the key considerations for cabling selection are and how to create solutions that are more efficient.

White Paper: IoT and Edge Computing

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.

Managing Cabling and Networking Equipment at the Edge

Edge computing environments, including edge data centers, reset goals and customer expectations for the housing, protection and management of equipment, including cabling and network gear. In these environments, one-size-fits-all isn’t even a consideration. The concepts, approaches, and best practices described in this document position network administrators for success in establishing the technologies and techniques needed for managing computing at the edge.

Splicing Efficiency Improvements in Ultra-High Density Fiber Optic Cable

This White Paper investigates and documents each aspect of the cable joining and the ribbon fiber splicing process of ultra-high density fiber optic cable and identifies improvements in cable preparation, closure preparation, ribbon fiber preparation, and the mass fusion splicing processes achieved since a previous study was published as a technical paper at the 64th IWCS in 2015.1 By taking a systems approach to the overall splicing process, it has been possible to improve efficiencies in the cable joining and splicing process to realize additional system cost savings with this technology.
